If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump fix-up visit sooner rather than later. Ensuring you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump functioning effectively and identify any issues that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can search for issues too. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Abilene Air-Tech Inc, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is adept to cool 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 process and shifts refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is fixed in one mode, it may be time call in an expert to inspect why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Inspect that your registers are all ready and accessible. If the trouble continues, call in a professional to learn 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 working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could indicate a slight 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 cycling on and off too often, it may be overheating. This could be a easy solution, like exchanging a blocked filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a fault in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
