Payson How to Know When It's Time for a Heat Pump Repair | North Mechanical Heating and Cooling

February 16, 2018
When it’s a little more frigid in Payson you rely 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 visit coming soon. Yearly maintenance service from certified technicians can keep your system running in peak performance and identify possible problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to look for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running correctly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could hint at 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 warm outside, your heat pump lowers the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, heat pumps reverse the process and moves refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to change modes, it may be time to contact an expert 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 indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be swapped out. 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 persists, call an expert 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 starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
