Lake Worth How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Smyth Air Conditioning Inc

When it’s cold in Lake Worth you count on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair in your future. Yearly maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system running properly and diagnose possible problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to look for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running properly. Is it running long enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could hint at a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump is stuck in heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s too hot outside, your heat pump regulates the temperature in your home by passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, heat pumps change the process and moves refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to switch 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 again and again. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. It may also indicate a failure in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and unhampered? If they are and the problem persists, call 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 starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
