Las Vegas How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Polar Air & Heating Inc

When it’s cold in Las Vegas you count on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment in your future. Annual maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system working properly and diagnose potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to watch for cues that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating the way it used to. Is it running long enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could indicate 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 cools your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps reverse the process and carries 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 professional to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as usual. Your heat pump may be overheating if it is cycling on and off again and again. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. It may also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and unobstructed? If they are and the problem endures, call an expert to see why your system is failing or out of balance.

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