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

When it’s a little more frigid in Mobile you count 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 appointment coming up. Annual maintenance service from professionals can keep your system operating properly and diagnose likely problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could hint at a small problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump is jammed 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 winter arrives, heat pumps change the process and passes refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to change modes, it may be time to contact a pro 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 may need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. It may also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled consistently. Are your registers all open and clear? If they are and the problem endures, reach out to a pro to see why your system is breaking down 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.
