Repair / Maintenance

Your home comfort system is most likely the single biggest use of energy in your home. In fact, over a third of the energy used in the United States is used to heat and cool buildings. Having a properly maintained heating and air conditioning system will have the biggest impact on your energy costs.

Your heat pump is no different than any other major machine. Just like your vehicle needs oil changes, new filters, service inspections and minor repairs over time, your heat pump also needs a small amount of ongoing attention to help you get the greatest comfort, efficient and lifespan out of your system.

During routine heat pump service, the technician will inspect for potential safety issues, clean heat exchangers and check that the systems are operating within manufacturer specifications. Being proactive about your heat pump maintenance may also head off larger repairs caused by equipment running with dirty coils, dirty filters or low refrigerant levels.

So how are you supposed to know when your heat pump needs repaired?

Unfortunately, heat pump problems at some point or another are inevitable, especially as the unit gets older. Because your unit plays such an important role in your comfort and safety, scheduling timely heat pump repairs is essential. Some of the most common issues that will require repairs include:
Your heat pump is blowing hot air
One of the most telltale signs that your heat pump needs professional attention is if the unit is blowing hot air when it should be cooling your home. This can be caused by broken internal components or low levels of refrigerant.
Your heat pump is producing strange smells
There are a number of reasons for bad smells coming from your heat pump, from pest infiltration to burned-out wire insulation or even mold growth. These should be dealt with quickly, as they could impact the health of everyone in your home.
Your thermostat reading is wrong
Sometimes the problem can be found with your thermostat rather than your system. If your home's temperature differs vastly from your thermostat reading, contact us for service.
Your system is short-cycling
If your heat pump is continuously starting up, running briefly, and then shutting down, your system is short-cycling. There are various reasons this could be happening, and sometimes the solution is as easy as replacing your filter. it's recommended that homeowners replace their air filters every three months. If this doesn't solve the problem, it's time for a service call.
You notice your heat pump is inefficient
If your utility bills have increased without you making any significant changes to your energy usage, a faulty heat pump may be the culprit. A heat pump with faulty internal components will lose its ability to operate on lower levels of fuel resulting in an apparent spike in energy usage.
You're experiencing inconsistent temperatures
Another common indicator that your have heat pump troubles is temperatures around different areas of your home are different and inconsistent. This could be due to dirty air vents and filters or failing internal components.
You notice leaks
If your heat pump is leaking water anywhere, this is cause for concern. A leak can indicate that the refrigerant has leaked out somewhere and this kind of water damage can negatively impact your unit.
