Do You Know How a Heat Pump Works?
Before calling for heat pump repair, you might be curious to learn how a heat pump actually works. For instance, did you know that a heat pump isn’t just for pumping heat? It’s true! They cool your home, too. Heat pumps don’t actually generate heat. Instead, they transfer it from one place to another. So, in the winter months, a heat pump pulls warmer air in from the outside to heat your home. Then, in summer, it pushes it out—so you stay nice and cool. Pretty nifty, huh? Not only is it nifty, but it’s highly efficient and budget-friendly, too!
Do I Need Heat Pump Repair?
Now that you know how a heat pump works, you’ll be better tuned in to know when it’s not working properly—and when it might need a quick fix! Here are some common issues to alert you that your heat pump might be on a downward spiral and in need of some professional repair:
A good signal that something is off with your heat pump is strange sounds. If you notice any rattling, whistling or humming coming from your system, give us a call for a heat pump repair.
One of the beautiful things about heat pumps is that they offer consistent heating and cooling throughout your home. If you start feeling hot and cold spots, that is a sure sign that something may be blocking your airflow or the cause of a ducting issue. Give us a ring for a little TLC!
Higher than normal energy bills
If you’re seeing your energy bills skyrocket, your heat pump could be failing you. Does it sound like it’s working overtime or cycling but not producing your desired temperature? If you’re not feeling consistency in your temperatures, it’s time for some professional advice.
Faulty reversing valve
Faulty reversing valves are another reason for heat pump repair. Bad valves can cause your system to get stuck in one mode, not allowing the system to switch from heat to cool or vice versa. This prevents your heat pump from providing the proper temperatures and operating efficiently.
