How to Know When It’s Time for a Heat Pump Repair


In Indian River County you rely on your heat pump to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump fix-up visit any day. Guaranteeing that you schedule annual maintenance service will help keep your heat pump running effectively and pinpoint any issues that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve compiled some signs for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Custom Air Systems Inc, if you notice any of these indicators:

  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 indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up the route and runs refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is fixed 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 unrestricted. If the issue keeps up, 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 running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could signify 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 cycling on and off too often, it may be overheating. This could be a simple solution, like changing a blocked 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 at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
