Abilene How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Abilene Air-Tech Inc

When it’s cold in Abilene you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment coming up. Once a year maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working efficiently and identify likely problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running correctly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem not as strong? These symptoms could indicate a minor 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 cools your home by carrying 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 switch modes, it may be time to contact an expert 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 frequently. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat may need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. 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 continues, contact 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 is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be a problem.
