To keep your home comfortable and warm this winter, you need a reliable heating system. In Fredericksburg, Virginia, heat pumps provide an energy-efficient heating source. You might take your heat pump’s operating ability for granted, but a heating system malfunction isn’t something you want to face. Learn to recognize the warning signs that indicate your heat pump has a problem and what to do to resolve it.
Unusual Operating Sounds
Clicking, grinding, whining, and other sounds aren’t noises you want to ignore. Depending on the type of sound, your heat pump could have a malfunctioning part that needs to be replaced. Don’t try to diagnose the problem on your own. Contact our service technicians for a heat pump inspection.
Poor Temperature Control
If your home doesn’t feel as warm as you’d like it to be, your heat pump may not be working correctly. Uneven heating can indicate a possible problem with your heat pump.
Frequent Cycling On and Off
If your heat pump starts and stops constantly, this cycling pattern can indicate that either your heat pump or your home’s thermostat isn’t working correctly. When you allow your heat pump to operate in this way, it won’t be able to efficiently heat your home.
Increases in Utility Bills
Heat pump problems may not always appear in the form of unusual sounds or poor temperature control. Have you noticed a significant increase in home heating costs on your utility bills? A heat pump that isn’t operating correctly uses more energy than it should. As a result, it runs more often and uses more energy than normal. Our service technicians can examine your heat pump to determine the cause of its operating inefficiency.
