Irvine How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | True Home Heating and Air Conditioning

When it’s chilly in Irvine you count on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit coming up. Annual maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system operating in peak performance and find potential problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to watch 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 all the time? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump is jammed heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s too hot outside, your heat pump lowers the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps shift the process and moves 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 pro to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump might be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. 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 clear? If they are and the problem endures, contact a professional 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 used to hearing, there could be something wrong.
