Stuart How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Breathe Healthier Air

When it’s a little more frigid in Stuart you count 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. Yearly maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system working properly and find potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signals that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating the way it used to. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could indicate 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 lowers the temperature in your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, heat pumps shift 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 could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat may need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. It may also indicate a breakdown in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled evenly. Are your registers all open and unhampered? If they are and the problem endures, call a professional to see why your system is failing or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is noisy. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be something wrong.
