Your Heat Pump is Noisy
If your heat pump isn’t working properly, you might hear strange noises.This is one of the more common signs that something is damaged or needs to be repaired.The noises may sound like rattering, sputtering, buzzing, or loud vibrations. A properly functioning heat pump should be virtually noiseless. If your heat pump is making loud sounds, it’s a good idea to contact a Tucson HVAC technician to take a look at your unit. Don’t wait it until it stops working entirely. Identifying and addressing a problem early on can prevent a costly heat pump replacement.
Your Heating Bill Went Up
If your heat pump isn’t working efficiently, it may be drawing a lot more energy than it should. It’s normal to see a change in your energy bill at the height of a season when you may be using your air conditioner or your heating more than you would at other times of the year. If you notice that your energy bills are a lot higher than they usually are in the winter, this could be the result of an inefficient heat pump.
Newer heat pumps are built for efficiency. They can generate a lot of heat with the fraction of the energy that older heat pumps use. Consider replacing your heat pump with a newer model. It will pay for itself with what you’ll save in utility bills.
The Air Isn’t Moving
Your heat pump pushes air through a filter. How long has it been since you’ve changed your filter? Dirty air filters can often restrict air flow. If your heat pump’s filter hasn’t been replaced, this is what could be causing your pump to work less efficiently. If you find that replacing the air filter doesn’t change anything, then an HVAC specialist can look further into the unit and properly identify and resolve the issue. If you need help replacing the filter, we can assist you.
