    Signs It’s Time to Repair Your Heat Pump

    Heat pump repairs can be a lifesaver when it starts to get cold, but not all problems are immediately apparent.

    How do you know when it’s time to schedule service? Here are a few questions you can ask yourself about your heat pump:


    Heat pumps don’t last forever, so if yours is 12 years old or more, it’s likely to need repairs more frequently than a newer unit.


    It’s best to schedule maintenance at least once a year — preferably just before the cold season — for maximum efficiency and longevity. If it’s been longer than a year since your last tune-up, you may miss small problems that can snowball into larger ones when the winter comes around.


    As your heat pump ages or wears out, it won’t transport warm air from your heater to your entire home with the efficiency needed to combat winter’s frigid temperatures.


    Cold air coming from your heat pump may be a sign that your outdoor unit is in defrost mode to melt ice buildup. It could also be the result of a serious problem. The cold air may have resulted from a faulty reversing valve or leaking refrigerant line — issues that call for fast HVAC services.


    If your heat pump shuts off and on quicker than it should, there may be a problem. Whether dirt is restricting your pump’s airflow or your thermostat is malfunctioning, rapid heat cycles are a sign that it’s time for repairs.


    If you notice a sudden spike in your energy bill during the winter, your heat pump is likely operating inefficiently. Repairs from a dependable HVAC team should set things straight.


    Loud or unsettling noises coming from your heat pump indicate a problem. If you notice your pump rattling, clanking, or groaning, it’s a good idea to schedule a repair appointment.

    Benefits of Repairing Your Heat Pump

    A healthy heat pump is essential for any Delaware Valley home.

    If your pump is malfunctioning, schedule a repair to benefit from:


    Fixing problems as soon as they occur will ensure your heat pump lasts as long as possible, allowing you to get the most out of your purchase.


    Save money on your utility bill during the winter by fixing those pesky issues that make your heat pump work harder than necessary to heat your home.


    Repair teams will clear your heat pump of dust and debris that could be pumped into your home through your HVAC vents.


    Malfunctioning heat pumps may cycle poisonous gases like carbon monoxide into your home. Repairs will ensure your family’s safety all winter long.


    After your heat pump repair, you’ll be cozy and warm with the peace of mind knowing your system is ready to face the winter.

    Basic Troubleshooting You Can Perform on Your Own

    Hiring a highly trained service team is the easiest solution when your heat pump fails, but there are a few tricks you can try to get your system back up and running on your own:


    We recommend changing your HVAC air filter every three months to remove any debris buildup.


    If your heat pump doesn’t turn on, check to see if it’s receiving power. Flipping the circuit breaker switch might fix the issue.


    Dig out your thermostat’s owner’s manual to see if any changed settings may be preventing it from signaling to your pump. If you have a newer electrical thermostat, you may also be able to recalibrate your system with a hard reset.

    If these methods don’t do the trick, it’s time to call a reliable heat pump service technician.
