Mobile How to Know When It's Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc

February 16, 2018
When it’s cold in Mobile you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair coming soon. Once a year maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working properly and identify possible problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for signs that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Is it running long enough? Is it running constantly? 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 regulates the temperature in your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps change the process and carries refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to convert modes, it may be time to contact an expert to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling normally. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. It may also indicate a malfunction 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 endures, reach out to a professional to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be a problem.
