How to Know When It’s Time for a Heat Pump Repair

In Cape Coral you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable throughout the chilly time of year. 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. Ensuring you schedule regular maintenance service will help keep your heat pump functioning properly and pinpoint any issues that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a pro, like Comfort Zone Inc, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is capable of cooling your house when it’s warm by moving refrigerant through the interior evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it reverses the procedure and moves refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is fixed in one mode, it may be time call in a technician to investigate why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all exposed and unrestricted. If the problem keeps up, call in a professional to find out why your system is breaking down or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is running on and off too frequently, it may be overheating. This could be a straightforward solution, like swapping a blocked filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running noisily or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
