How to Tell You Need Heat Pump Repairs
Winter is here again! This means more than just baking Christmas cookies and wrapping holiday gifts. It also means you need to start thinking about your heater again! After all, with the winter months comes quite a chill. If your heater isn’t working properly, it’ll be nearly impossible to enjoy the season the way you would like to.
You should be able to rely on your heat pump to keep your home comfortable no matter what the winter season throws at you. This won’t be the case if something is wrong with your system, though. If only there were a way to know your heater is about to go out before it actually does. There is! Here are some warning signs to watch out for that indicate you need to reach out to one of the technicians at JD Mohler Heating & Air Pros for repairs:
#1 Your heat pump is making loud, odd, banging, or concerning sounds. When you run your heater, it isn’t going to run without making any noises at all. Just like other machines, it will make a low rumbling or humming sound. However, if you notice strange sounds like screeching, rattling, hissing, banging, or clanging, now is the time to reach out for repairs.
#2 There is poor airflow. Poor airflow comes right before no airflow. If you are running your heat pump but it is barely producing any air at all, this is a sign of trouble. The issue could possibly be with your blower fan or your air filter. Whatever the cause, a technician will figure it out and fix it.
#3 Your unit is short cycling. The term “short cycling” refers to when your HVAC system only runs for a few minutes before shutting down. Your heat pump is not warming your home faster than usual; the opposite is true. Short cycling is actually a sign that something is really wrong with your system and it’s not heating much at all.
#4 Energy bills are through the roof. If your energy bills are far higher than you think they should be, that may mean your HVAC is working really hard and producing very little. These energy bills are an indicator of your use of your heat pump. If your energy bills are way higher than they used to be this time last year, this is an indicator that something is wrong with your system.
