Paso Robles How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Paso Robles Heating and Air

When it’s cold in Paso Robles you depend on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit coming up. Yearly maintenance service from experts can keep your system running properly and diagnose possible problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for signals that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working the way it used to. Is it running long enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem not as strong? These symptoms could point to a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump can’t get out of heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s too hot outside, your heat pump cools your home by passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps change the process and carries 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 professional to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump might be overheating if it is cycling on and off too often. This might signal a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. It may also indicate a failure in your thermostat or blower.

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

5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be something wrong.
