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

In Upland you rely on your heat pump to keep you comfy 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 needing a heat pump repair visit sooner rather than later. Guaranteeing that you schedule regular maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating properly and detect any trouble that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  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 moving refrigerant through the internal evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it reverses 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 ready and unobstructed. If the problem persists, call in a pro to see why your system is crashing or out of equilibrium.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is cycling on and off too frequently, it may be overheating. This could be a simple fix, like swapping a clogged filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also indicate a fault in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts working noisily or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
