St. Cloud How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Osceola Air, LLC

When it’s chilly in St. Cloud you count on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair appointment in your future. Yearly maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system running in peak performance and diagnose possible problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to watch for signs that indicate repair is needed. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running the way it used to. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could hint at a minor 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 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 frequently. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. 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 loud. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’re not familiar with, there could be something wrong.
