Murrieta How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Cool Air Solutions

When it’s a little more frigid in Murrieta you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair coming soon. Once a year maintenance service from experts can keep your system running in peak performance and identify likely problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to look for signals that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump can’t get out of heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s warm outside, your heat pump regulates the temperature in your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps reverse the process and moves refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to change modes, it may be time to contact a professional to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump may be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. It may also indicate a breakdown in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled consistently. Are your registers all open and unobstructed? If they are and the problem continues, call a professional to see why your system is breaking down or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is noisy. If your heat pump starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
