If you’re looking for great heat pump services in Salem, OR then make sure that you call us today to schedule an appointment.

Common Heat Pump Problems to Look Out For

Do you know the signs that your heat pump is faltering? It’s not always glaringly evident, so we’ve compiled a short list below of signs to look out for:

  • No Air or Cold Air: Winter isn’t exactly over so you’re probably still relying on your heat pump to heat your home. Are you running into trouble with your heat pump? Sometimes homeowners notice that the air they feel in their home during this time of year starts to blow lukewarm instead of hot. If you’re not getting enough heat from your heat pump or if you’re air isn’t blowing warm enough, make sure that you call a professional heat technician from our team.
  • Odd Run Times: There are two common problems that arise with the run time of your heat pump—either it blows for too long or your system starts to short cycle. If your heat pump constantly runs it means that your system struggles to keep up with the needs of your home. If your heater short cycles it’s typically due to a high level of dirt in your system and/or an incorrectly sized heater.
  • Poor Indoor Air Quality: Notice that it feels like allergy season already even though spring hasn’t even arrived fully? It’s normally because of the poor air quality in your home. Poor air quality is a detriment to your health, the efficacy of your heating system, and the cost of your energy bills. Contact our team today to schedule an appointment.

Why You’ve Run into These Problems

If you’re running into any of the problems we listed above then make sure that you contact our professional team today. Problems like the ones above are typically due to issues like skipping maintenance calls, a poorly calibrated thermostat, or running your heat pump incorrectly. A poorly maintained heat pump will cause you problems. It’s always best to have a technician from our team come out twice annually (one to prepare your heat pump for winter and another time to prepare your heat pump for summer) so that you won’t have to run into any of these issues.

If your heat pump has seen better days you can contact our team at Advantage Heating & Air Conditioning for service that goes above and beyond. Contact our team today to schedule an appointment.
