Litchfield Park How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Cooler Tymes LLC

When it’s chilly in Litchfield Park you depend on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment in your future. Once a year maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working in peak performance and diagnose likely problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signals that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating the way it used to. Is it running long enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could point to a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

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

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as usual. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too often. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. It may also indicate a malfunction 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 an expert to see why your system is breaking down or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
