Bakersfield How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing

When it’s a little more frigid in Bakersfield you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair coming soon. Annual maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working properly and diagnose likely problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for signs that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most well-known symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could point to a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump is jammed heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s too hot outside, your heat pump cools your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps shift the process and passes refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to convert modes, it may be time to contact a pro 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 again and again. This might indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be replaced. It may also indicate a breakdown in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and clear? If they are and the problem continues, reach out to a professional to see why your system is failing or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is noisy. If your heat pump starts running loudly or making noises you’ve never heard before, there could be a problem.
