Orange How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Mighty Ducts

When it’s a little more frigid in Orange you rely on your heat pump to keep you cozy. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit coming up. Once a year maintenance service from experts can keep your system operating in peak performance and find possible problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could hint at 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 too hot outside, your heat pump regulates the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps shift the process and passes 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 as usual. Your heat pump might be overheating if it is cycling on and off too often. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat could 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 uniformly. Are your registers all open and clear? If they are and the problem endures, contact an expert to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is noisy. If your heat pump begin running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be something wrong.
