What Can Go Wrong with a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps truly are a marvel of modern technology. They can both heat and cool your home at peak efficiency, while your furnace or air conditioner needs to function separately, each with separate pieces of technology. A heat pump can give you the peace of mind knowing that one system is taking care of all your HVAC needs while you focus on the more important things in life.

That being said, we’d be terrible HVAC experts if we weren’t honest with you about some of the problems that heat pump owners frequently run into. So, if you’re enjoying the comfort of your heat pump this winter and all of a sudden one day you’re in desperate need for heating repair in Shreveport, LA—then this blog post is for you!

So buckle up and let the Doctor of Home Comfort give you a lesson on what could be wrong with your heat pump!

Failing to Turn on

Picture this, a cozy afternoon when you’re sitting on your couch enjoying a nice book when your heat pump just stops working and won’t turn on. Can you imagine anything more frustrating than that?

The good news is that you’re likely dealing with a problem on either end of the heat pump and not specifically with the heat pump itself. If your thermostat is having issues, for instance, it might not be giving the right temperature information to your heat pump, causing it to stop starting up. Or the issue could be with not enough power getting to your heat pump, which is an entirely separate issue and might require some rewiring. Basically, you’re going to need the help of a trained professional.

Your Heat Pump Is Not Producing Heat

Well, that sure sounds like a problem to us! We’d first like to ask homeowners out there who are experiencing a problem like this to make absolutely sure that your vents aren’t being blocked. While this might sound like a slight, we promise that a lot of the time homeowners might not feel the air that their heat pumps are trying to give them—only to fight that their couch, table, and other furniture are blocking all the vents in your home!

There also could be a problem with the air filter, since your heat pump might be having trouble producing heat because it can’t take any air in. Make sure you change the system’s air filter to ensure it’s working at peak performance!

You Heat Pump Is Making Noises

We promise you there are no noises that your heat pump should be making aside from a general whir of electricity and the air escaping your vents. If there’s any banging, screeching, or rattling then there’s clearly a problem that needs to be addressed by a professional. Speaking of professional, you’re reading the blog of the Doctor of Home Comfort! So, in case we weren’t clear earlier, your heat pump will be fixed in no time if you give our team a call.

Don’t settle for anything less than perfection. With the team at Hall’s Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, that’s exactly what you can expect. Call the Doctor of Home Comfort Today!
