Heat pumps are very important for heating your house in the winter and cooling it down in the summer. If yours is not working properly then you will not have the temperature you want in your home. So, what kind of problems can your heat pump have, and how does it affect your home? Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning wants to help you understand a little bit more about heat pumps so you know when to call a professional when you need help.
Heat Pump is Making a Lot of Loud Noise
Your heat pump should not be making any loud noises. If it is making any noises you need to call a professional to come to take a look at it. These noises may include buzzing, hissing, or rattling. A buzzing noise could indicate that the engine needs to be repaired. If it is hissing it could be that the valves are faulty. A rattling noise could mean something is broken. No matter what the sound is you need to get it checked before it causes more problems.
My Heat Pump Keeps Turning On & Off
If your heat pump is turning on and off this isn’t normal. What is happening is called short cycling. This could be that the compressor is malfunctioning or there is a problem with the thermostat and it is short-circuiting. If this is happening to you then you need to call a professional to come to take a look at it. You do not want to have short cycling happen.
Not Heating & Cooling Properly
As we said, the great thing about a heat pump is that it does both cool and heat your home. When it is not heating or cooling your home then it could be a problem with the reversing valve. This can be a common problem, but you need to get it checked out if this is happening before it causes more damage.
High Utility Bill
If you have noticed that your utility bill has gone up a lot in the last few months then there could be a problem with your heat pump. When things are not working properly then it has to work harder which increases your bills. Heat pumps are very efficient so if there is something wrong with it, this can increase your utility bill.
Bad Smells from Heat Pump
Bad smells are never a good sign. If you are smelling a bad or foul smell from your heat pump then it is damaged in some way. If you are smelling any burning smells this is a big concern and you need to call a professional right away.
