Now that you understand some of the usual reasons of heat pump damage, it could be helpful to learn how those concerns come about. Here are some general signs something is going awry with your heat pump.
1. Heat Pump Covered in Ice
During the winter, it’s feasible that your outdoor system will have a little ice accumulation. When this occurs, your equipment should move into a defrost cycle and revert the refrigerant to melt the ice. If your whole unit is coated in ice and will not defrost, you have a concern that needs expert service.
2. Heat Pump is Short Cycling
By short cycling, we mean that your heat pump turns on and stops before it’s had the opportunity to deliver your space to your chosen temperature. This is an indication that your heat pump is the incorrect size for your space. If it’s not taken care of, it could damage your heat pump.
3. Energy Fees are Increasing
Your heat pump is one of the most productive HVAC solutions available—even if if you keep up with it. If you’re doing what you can to take care of your equipment and are still seeing your energy bills increase, it’s time to bring in an expert.
4. Heat Pump is Making Loud Noises
Your heat pump won’t always be completely noiseless, but it also shouldn’t be terribly noisy. If you’re hearing new sounds from your system—particularly any that sound out of place—you ought to have a professional take a look.
5. Home Comfort System Seems Weaker
Lower home comfort is maybe the predominant—and irritating—proof you may need a fix. If you’ve attempted changing your setting and nothing works, Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning can help.
