Heat Pump Repair
There are a lot of ways to go about keeping your home comfortable throughout the year, but one of the most popular these days is with a heat pump. Heat pumps offer a cost effective, convenient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. As with those systems, problems can arise even if you’re diligent about regular maintenance. Parts will inevitably fail as any system ages.
If you own a heat pump and are having difficulties with it, call DB Heating & Cooling today. Our Bergen County area heat pump repair technicians have the tools and experience needed to quickly resolve even the most complex heat pump problems.
Heat Pump Problems
One of the major reasons heat pumps break down and need to be replaced is that homeowners miss the early signs of an issue. Often, these symptoms are easy to miss because the system continues to work seemingly well, even when there is a problem. It’s important that you recognize problems as soon as possible to prevent irreparable damage.
One of the most common issues you’ll find is a decrease in the effectiveness of your heat pump. It may not be able to control temperatures with the same amount of energy as it originally did. If you have a backup furnace, you’ll notice a sudden increase in both your heating bill and your electric bill for the heat pump. In the summer, similar problems will occur. You will notice a sharp increase in how much electricity it takes to keep your home at the same, comfortable temperature you’re used to. Beyond the increase in cost to run your heat pump, you may also notice that the heat pump no longer heats or cools the rooms in your home evenly.
Professional Heat Pump Repair
If you notice any of these problems, it’s time to call a professional to inspect your heat pump. You should a already have someone inspecting your system at least once every year to make sure the filters, condenser and compressor are working as intended and to replace any parts that are beginning to wear down. However, there will be occasions where you notice problems that go beyond your normal maintenance schedule.
A professional can examine your system for problems that may have occurred since the last maintenance visit, testing the entire heat pump for broken parts, reduced capacity, or a problem in your air handler or ductwork.
