What Are the Signs Your Heat Pump Needs Repairs?
If you already use a heat pump system in your home, you understand it works during both heating and air conditioning seasons. Continuous operation increases the risk of early/premature breakdowns. Here are some common signs that you should request service.
Ice or frost on the heat pump
Ice typically builds up on outdoor units due to a lack of refrigerant or airflow issues. The heat pump will kick into the defrost cycle to start melting the ice. Problems with the sensors or circuit board can also create ice and will initiate defrost mode. If you notice ice buildup, it’s time to call for repair.
The #1 reason why HVAC systems end up with airflow issues is air filter neglect! It is incredibly important to change your filter on a monthly (or routine) basis. A clogged filter can shut down your system.
If the furnace filter isn’t the issue, weak airflow or warm air during air conditioning season can sometimes stem from problems with the outdoor fan. If it’s not spinning when the unit is on, there’s likely a problem, and it’s time for a service call.
Unfortunately, many unusual sounds come from outdoor pests and animals. Our service technicians fix many broken parts caused by mice and other critters creating homes in the unit.
Strange noises can also stem from a compressor or fan motor being off balance, ice on the fan blades, storm debris trapped inside the outdoor unit, or even refrigerant switching between heating and cooling modes.
High energy bills
If your HVAC system isn’t keeping up with the temperature set on the thermostat, your house will likely feel uncomfortable. However, what’s even more discomforting is the high energy consumption of a faulty unit. The best way to combat high energy bills and an uncomfortable house is to gather free estimates and choose a company that will provide quality service or heat pump installation.
Benefits of Heat Pump Repair and Maintenance
If you use a heat pump year-round to keep your home comfortable, it’s incredibly important to schedule routine maintenance. A well-maintained system will last much longer than one that goes neglected.
An annual ‘clean and check’ will provide you with better reliability. Before the cooling season begins, a service technician will check the airflow and ensure that all the output levels are within the optimal operational range. They will also examine all the components in your system to make sure nothing is broken, and all pieces are fastened tightly. This will help alleviate any noise concerns you may be experiencing.
Energy efficiency is something everyone is seeking these days. A technician can tell you if your system is efficiently conditioning the air in your home or if a new installation would be best for your family.
Finally, heat pump repair and maintenance gives you, as a homeowner, peace of mind that your home will be safe, healthy, and comfortable.
