How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair

In Las Vegas you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for heat pump fix-up visit any day. Confirming that you schedule annual maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating effectively and detect any issues that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can look for trouble too. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Polar Air & Heating Inc, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is able to cool your house when it’s warm by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up the process and moves refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is stuck in one mode, it may be time call in a technician to examine why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all ready and unobstructed. If the trouble persists, call in a pro to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of equilibrium.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is cycling on and off too frequently, it may be overheating. This could be a easy fix, like changing a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to schedule heat pump maintenance. Call Polar Air & Heating Inc at 702-623-0579 or use our online scheduler when you need to setup repairs or annual maintenance.
