If your heat pump system all of the sudden stops working, then of course you know that you need repairs. However, there are other times where your cooling system may seem to be working properly, but you’ve noticed some concerning symptoms. So how do you know when it’s the right time to call for heat pump repairs?
If you want your heat pump cooling system to make it through the remainder of our summer—and fall—temperatures, then you should schedule air conditioning repairs at the first sign of trouble. We’ve provided 3 signs below that can indicate it’s time for you to invest in repairs.
1. Loud Noises
Typically, if there’s an unfamiliar sound coming from your cooling system, there’s a problem. Any sound that seems odd should be inspected by one of our professionals as to reduce the risk of a costlier emergency down the road.
For example, if you notice a hissing sound, you might have leaky ducts. Small leaks disrupt air flow and can cause your indoor evaporator coil to freeze. While a seemingly minor problem, this can grow into a significant issue that reduces the effectiveness and functionality of your heat pump system.
2. Loss of Cooling Power
Have you notice that your air conditioner has lost cooling power? If it doesn’t seem to be able to reach the number on the thermostat, it could be that your heat pump system doesn’t have enough refrigerant. If this is the case, it can’t move heat from your home properly.
3. High Utility Bills
Quite often, high energy bills indicate that your air conditioning system is having problems. If your heat pump is costing more to operate despite comparable use to the year before, the you might have a faulty component on your hands. Give us a call today to learn more.
