In Crestview you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump repair visit sooner rather than later. Ensuring you schedule regular maintenance service will help keep your heat pump functioning efficiently and identify any issues that may need attention before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve collected some indicators for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Gordon Air Conditioning, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is capable of cooling your house when it’s warm by moving refrigerant through the internal evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it switches the procedure and moves refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is stuck in one mode, it may be time call in a technician to examine why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all exposed and unobstructed. If the problem continues, call in a pro to see why your system is crashing or out of equilibrium.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is switching on and off too frequently, it may be overheating. This could be a easy answer, like swapping a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also present a malfunction in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
