How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair

In Englewood you count on your heat pump to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a heat pump fix-up visit sooner rather than later. Ensuring you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump running efficiently and detect any issues that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Symbiont Service Corp, if you note any of these signs:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is able to cool your house when it’s warm by shifting refrigerant through the interior evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up the procedure and runs refrigerant to the outside evaporator coil. If your heat pump is set in one mode, it may be time call in a technician to inspect why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Ensure that your registers are all exposed and accessible. If the issue continues, call in a professional to find out why your system is crashing or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the interior 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 simple answer, like exchanging a clogged filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a malfunction in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to schedule heat pump maintenance. Call Symbiont Service Corp at 941-306-4161 or use our online scheduler when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
