When to Call for Repair Service

3.      It’s Noisy

Does your heat pump sound more like a symphony of pots and pans rattling around when you run it? This is a sign that something has really gone wrong with your heat pump system. Your heat pump either has something rattling around because it’s loose or broken. The problem your having is different depending upon the sound. We can help you decipher the issue and solve it too.

4.      You See Ice

We live in Florida, so our “winter” season has really just started. If you were just running your heat pump as your air conditioning system and you notice ice development on the exterior on your outside unit then you’re definitely having trouble with your home’s heat pump. More specifically, it’s a clear indication that you’re having poor airflow troubles, refrigerant leaks, or other heat pump issues.

5.      You Notice That It’s Short Cycling

“Short cycling” a term that describes the process of your home’s heat pump starting, running for a short amount of time, pausing for a moment, and then starting the process all over again. Short cycling is one of those problems that homeowners slide to the back burner more than any other because it doesn’t seem like a major issue. In reality, it’s a huge problem that’s going to wear your system down, heighten your bills, and deteriorate your heating and cooling efficacy.
