In Litchfield Park you rely on your heat pump to keep you comfortable throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump fix-up visit in the near future. Confirming that you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating efficiently and identify any problems that may need work before they get worse. But you can look for trouble too. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Cooler Tymes LLC, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is adept to cool your house when it’s warm by shifting refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it switches the route and shifts refrigerant to the outside evaporator coil. If your heat pump is set in one mode, it may be time call in a pro to inspect why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Ensure that your registers are all open and unobstructed. If the problem continues, call in an expert to see why your system is breaking down or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a minor problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is running on and off too often, it may be overheating. This could be a easy fix, like swapping a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a malfunction in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts working at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to arrange heat pump service. Call Cooler Tymes LLC at 623-208-6444 or use our online scheduler when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
