When it’s a little more frigid in Tucson you rely 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 in your future. Once a year maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system operating properly and identify potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to look for signs that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most common symptoms:
1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem not as strong? These symptoms could point to a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
2. Your heat pump can’t get out of heating mode or cooling mode. When when you need to beat the heat outside, your heat pump lowers the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps reverse the process and passes refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to convert modes, it may be time to contact a professional 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 often. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. It may also indicate a failure in your thermostat or blower.
4. Your home is not being heated or cooled evenly. Are your registers all open and unobstructed? If they are and the problem persists, contact a pro to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.
5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump begin running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
