Buellton How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning

When it’s a little more frigid in Buellton you rely on your heat pump to keep you cozy. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment coming soon. Once a year maintenance service from experts can keep your system working efficiently and identify likely problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signals that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running long enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could hint at a small 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 passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps reverse 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 a pro 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 again and again. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat could 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 evenly. Are your registers all open and unhampered? If they are and the problem continues, reach out to an expert to see why your system is breaking down or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is noisy. If your heat pump begin running loudly or making noises you’ve never heard before, there could be something wrong.
