Crestview How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Gordon Air Conditioning

When it’s a little more frigid in Crestview you count on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment coming up. Yearly maintenance service from professionals can keep your system running in peak performance and identify possible problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signals that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running the way it used to. Is it running for enough time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could point to 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 passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps change the process and moves refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to switch modes, it may be time to contact a professional to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling normally. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off again and again. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. It may also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or blower.

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

5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump begin running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be a problem.
