Heat pumps are a kind of home heating systems that work year-round to keep you comfortable. By moving heat to where it’s needed, it can work wonders as an auxiliary heat source. However, your heat pump can run into its own set of problems that require professional repair work. Our heat pump experts can help you identify a heat pump in need of our professional touch.
Here are five signs your heat pump needs our professional repair work:
Heat pumps work by circulating refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and condensation. A heat pump facing problems may turn on and off every few minutes instead of properly cycling. This problem can wear down your heat pump and hurt its overall lifespan if not corrected. There’s no single cause for cycling problems, so you’ll need professional assistance to diagnose and fix the problem.
Loud noises are a common sign that an appliance needs repairs. Internal problems with your heat pump may cause it to make loud noises while it’s operating. Like with cycling problems, there are many possible causes for the noise. The best way to deal with this problem is by calling a professional.
Stuck reversing valve
Heat pumps can reverse their heating process to help cool your home during hotter weather. However, if the reversing valve gets stuck, the heat pump won’t be able to switch between heating and cooling. It’s easy to tell what the problem is in this case, but you’ll still need a professional’s help to properly fix the problem.
Old age is another major reason appliances become less reliable and inefficient. If you have the manufacturer’s instructions for your heat pump, you might be able to find when you should expect to replace it. On average, fifteen years is generally when heat pumps should be replaced. However, this number can change depending on the model, the manufacturer, and how well you’ve maintained yours.
Heightened energy bills
Whether caused by old age, worn parts, or inactivity, poor energy efficiency is another common problem for heat pumps and other appliances. Poor energy efficiency means an appliance has to use more electricity to properly work, which means you’ll spend more on its operation. Also, since inefficient appliances have to work harder, they tend to wear down quicker. Giving your heat pump regular maintenance can keep it efficient and avoid a premature breakdown.
