When it’s chilly in St. Cloud 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 coming up. Annual maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system operating in peak performance and diagnose potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signals that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most common symptoms:
1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running the way it used to. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? 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 regulates the temperature in your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps reverse the process and carries refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to convert modes, it may be time to contact a pro to find out why.
3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too often. 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 breakdown in your thermostat or blower.
4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and clear? 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 noisy. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be something wrong.
