What To Know About Heat Pump Repairs

What To Know About Heat Pump Repairs

If your home in Fairfield County has a heat pump installed, you will need heat pump repairs on occasion and should also look into having your heat pump heater maintained. A heat pump is a cooling and heating system which is made of an indoor and outdoor unit. You may have a furnace and air conditioner or just an air conditioner and heat pump. If something goes wrong with one part, it will affect the other. This is the most common type of cooling system and is also a central air system. Although the term “heat pump” sounds like it is just a heating system, it does include the air conditioning equipment which will need repair during the warmer months.

Heat pumps need a tune-up twice per year, once just before you need to use the air conditioner and once before you need the heating system. This helps you to avoid repairs. Heat pump problems can potentially cause high utility bills before the problem is realized. Here are some tips on how to spot problems and what you should know about heat pump repairs.

Most Common Heat Pump Repairs

Heat pump won’t turn on – This would most likely be a problem with the thermostat or the unit receiving power. Check the main breaker to see if it tripped. Also, check the breaker located near the outside unit.

Strange sounds – Grinding and squealing sounds can mean the motor bearings are worn. Rattling is most often due to a grille (register) out of place or loose hardware which is a simple fix. A heat pump repair technician will need to determine the cause of grinding or squealing sounds.

Air isn’t cool enough – This will need the attention of a heat pump repair technician. It is likely due to an improper level of refrigerant.

High-Efficiency Heat Pumps Replacement

The replacement of your heat pump or other heating equipment may be the right thing to do. There is always a time when it’s better to replace your heating system than to continue paying for repairs on problems that won’t go away.

Every machine will eventually need to be replaced, which is true for your heat pump, boiler, gas heater, and other types. High-Efficiency Heat Pumps may be the solution to your replacement needs because they work very efficiently.
