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 depend 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 visit 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 signs that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Is it running long enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? 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 moving 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 change modes, it may be time to contact a pro to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling normally. 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 changed. It may also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled consistently. Are your registers all open and unhampered? If they are and the problem continues, reach out to a professional to see why your system is breaking down or out of balance.

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