Heat pump maintenance is important, as it can prevent a lot of problems. However, you need to know how to recognize the signs of a heat pump problem and when to call a professional for repair services.
Inconsistent heating and cooling
If certain rooms in your house are warmer or cooler than others, it could indicate a problem with your air ducts, dampers, evaporator coils or the thermostat. Your HVAC technician can diagnose the problem and make the necessary heat pump repairs.
Heat pumps can be very quiet, but unusual rattling or screeching sounds may indicate a problem with the fan motor or electrical components. A programmable thermostat could also need new batteries, or it could be time for an upgrade to a Wi-Fi-enabled unit. If you notice any unusual sounds, contact Jones Services for a heat pump repair service.
Your heat pump isn’t generating enough heat
When your heat pump is on but it’s generating only cold air, you probably need to replace the reversing valve. It could be clogged, or the system’s refrigerant levels might be low. If refrigerant is missing, your technician will need to replenish it and may charge you a bit more than normal.
Regular heat pump maintenance can help your system last longer and keep your energy bills more stable. Preventative maintenance also helps reduce wear and tear on the system, preventing costly repairs in the future. Heat pump repair services
