Signs You Need Heat Pump Repair Right Away
Heat pumps offer energy-efficient solutions to heating and cooling in homes and offices. They are quiet to operate, save money on utility bills and have the advantage of including heating and cooling capabilities in one component. However, like any other finely crafted mechanical device, they must be well-maintained. Even if you are diligent about heat pump maintenance, your system may experience problems. Here are tell-tale signs that you should call for heat pump repair as soon as possible.
Unusual noises coming from any appliance should be investigated. High-pitched sounds, thumping, whining or clanging signal a problem. First, check that the filter is clean. If you have a ducted system, make sure the grilles are clear and clean. Check the outside unit for twigs, grass and dust that can clog the unit. A twig caught in a fan blade may rub against the housing as the fan spins.
If these simple checks do not solve the problem, call a professional to check it out. There may be a refrigerant leak, worn bearings or loose parts.
If your heat pump does not heat or cool properly, check the thermostat setting. Check that the filter is clean and grilles are clear. If you have not had the unit serviced in a year, schedule a maintenance checkup. During a tune-up, technicians inspect, clean and calibrate all the components.
Tripping Circuit Breaker
The indoor and outdoor components of a heat pump should be on separate breakers. Check both, following safety precautions. If the breaker trips again after resetting it, call a professional.
