  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Ensure that your registers are all exposed and accessible. If the trouble continues, call in a pro to learn why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
