Sylmar How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning

When it’s a little more frigid in Sylmar 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 coming soon. Once a year maintenance service from experts can keep your system working in peak performance and diagnose possible problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to look for signals that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running long enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could point to 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 regulates the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, heat pumps shift 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 how it regularly does. Your heat pump might be overheating if it is cycling on and off again and again. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat may need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. It may also indicate a breakdown 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 continues, reach out to a professional 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 a problem.
