In Mobile you rely on your heat pump to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump repair visit any day. Confirming that you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating effectively and identify any issues that may need attention before they get worse. But you can scan for problems too. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, if you see any of these signs:

  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 running refrigerant through the internal evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it switches the procedure and runs refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is fixed in one mode, it may be time call in a pro to inspect why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Inspect that your registers are all ready and unobstructed. If the issue continues, call in a pro to find out why your system is crashing or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is cycling on and off too regularly, it may be overheating. This could be a easy answer, like exchanging a clogged filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also indicate a glitch in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts operating loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
