A heat pump is a popular HVAC solution among homeowners in Greenville, NC. Although it’s a reliable piece of heating and cooling equipment, it may have trouble working correctly due to a variety of issues. Here are four common issues that will require a professional heat pump repair:
Problems with your heat pump may originate from your thermostat. Therefore, you must check whether you’ve set it correctly. Another problem may originate from incorrect calibration that causes your thermostat to misread temperatures. Other problems include electrical issues with the thermostat or lack of communication with the heat pump, both of which require professional repairs.
Sometimes problems in your heat pump may be as a result of a tripped breaker. You can check to ensure that all the breakers are correctly positioned. If the problem is consistent, call a professional to troubleshoot the system to determine the exact cause of the problem.
Broken reversing valves can result in low efficiency in the heat pump. They’re responsible for reversing the refrigerant to allow it to act as both a heater and an air conditioner. You can consult a service technician to fix the reversing valve and restore your heat pump.
If the air coming from the vents isn’t cool enough, it may be a sign that your components are dirty. Cleaning the components of your heat pump from dirt, dust or debris can help to restore efficiency. A professional can complete this when you schedule a heat pump maintenance service.
Low Refrigerant Charge
Finally, low refrigerant levels will result in your heat pump struggling to cool your home. Scheduling a heat pump repair to check for any leaks and fixing them can help to improve the efficiency of your heat pump.
