Safford How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | B&D Air Conditioning

When it’s chilly in Safford you rely 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. Annual maintenance service from experts can keep your system running efficiently and find likely problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for cues that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working the way it used to. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could point to 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 lowers the temperature in your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, 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 could 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 replaced. It may also indicate a malfunction 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 breaking down or out of balance.

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