Crestview How to Know When It's Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Gordon Air Conditioning

February 16, 2018
When it’s cold in Crestview you count on your heat pump to keep you cozy. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit in your future. Once a year maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system running in peak performance and identify potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to watch for cues that indicate repair is necessary. 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 all the time? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could indicate a small 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 cools your home by passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps change the process and carries refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to switch modes, it may be time to contact an expert to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump might be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. 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 persists, call a professional to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.

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