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. Annual maintenance service from professionals can keep your system operating efficiently and identify 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 common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running the way it used to. Is it running for enough time? Is it running all the time? 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 when you need to beat the heat 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 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 may be overheating if it is cycling on and off again and again. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. 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, call 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 used to hearing, there could be a problem.
