Heat Pump Repair Specialist
If your heat pump is acting up, there are a few checks you can perform before calling in a professional for repair.
Start by checking its thermostat settings:
Make sure it is set appropriately (either heating or cooling mode).
Clean or replace air filters:
Dirty air filters can restrict airflow, forcing the system to work harder, increasing chances of breakdowns.
Check the circuit breaker:
If the heat pump won't turn on, check that its circuit breaker hasn't tripped and see if that has anything to do with its failure to start up.
Check the outdoor unit:
Before beginning any maintenance on an outdoor unit, ensure it is free from debris like leaves or branches which could impede airflow and cause the system to malfunction.
If none of these solutions resolve your heat pump's issues, it may be worthwhile consulting a licensed HVAC technician for help diagnosing and repairing them. Common heat pump issues include refrigerant leaks, thermostat malfunctions, compressor failures, etc. A professional will be able to quickly identify what the root cause of any issues are before performing repairs that get your unit functioning efficiently again.
