Heat Pump Repair
When your home requires heat pump repair services, turn to the experienced experts at Edwards Royal Comfort. We provide quality heat pump repair services throughout Crawfordsville, Danville, and Greencastle, IN.
Heat pumps in general are very reliable ways to heat and cool your home. Because they provide homes with both heating and cooling, they require maintenance twice per year. When heat pump repair services are needed, the process is generally straightforward. We offer complete maintenance, repair, and heat pump installation by highly trained technicians.
How Do You Know That Your Heat Pump Needs Repairs?
Rising Heating and Cooling Costs
Even though heat pumps are highly efficient, when they begin to fail, they can drive up the monthly cost of heating and cooling. If you notice that your monthly bill is higher, you might require heat pump repair services. We provide quality services from maintenance and repair, to full heat pump replacement.
Strange Noises and Smells
Heat pumps are very quiet. If you notice an increase in noise from the heat pump, or smell odd odors during the heating or air conditioning cycle, call us for service. Generally, odors will indicate a small leak in the loop piping or lines. Additionally, it could be a sign of water pooling in the bottom of the unit due to a condensate drain being plugged, causing mold or mildew. A fast and efficient heat pump service call can repair the issues.
You Can’t Reach the Set Temperature
If the heat pump struggles to reach the ideal temperature or it seems the heat pump is stuck or blows cold air when it is in heat mode, call for heat pump services.
The Unit Won’t Turn On
A power on or off problem can indicate a short in the switch, a failed switch, or an issue with the thermostat. It is the job of the thermostat to tell the unit to turn on and off. Any of these issues can affect how the heat pump turns on or off.
Many of these issues are simple and by fixing them sooner rather than later, you can sometimes avoid major repairs and save money.
Maintenance Can Prevent Repairs
A big advantage of going with heat pumps is that they require two sets of maintenance per year – one for the heating unit and one for the cooling unit. Those maintenance calls help to spot little issues before they become major and expensive repairs.
In addition to maintenance service calls, heat pump tune-up service can also help reduce expensive repairs and down service time. A heat pump tune up helps return the unit to factory conditions so that it runs at peak efficiency. That means there is less wear and tear on parts and fewer repairs in the short and long run. Those service calls add a lot of value to your heating and cooling, as well as the life of your heat pump.
The best way to extend the life of a heat pump system is to maintain the unit twice per year. The cost is a good investment as it decreases the likelihood of having to pay for major repairs.
When Does Your Heat Pump Need to Be Replaced?
If you own a heat pump and are facing repairs, how do you know if it is best to repair the unit or replace it? There is no easy answer to that question. The following issues can indicate one vs. the other.
The Age of the Heat pump system
Heat pumps can last for 15-20 years if well-maintained. If the unit is aging and beginning to break down, it may save you more money to replace it. As heating and air conditioning units age, they reach a point where they need repairs more often. If your heat pump is in that stage of its lifecycle, it is more cost-effective to replace the unit than continue to pay larger repair bills.
Additionally, winter or summer is never a good time to be without a functional heating system. When you choose to install a new system before it fails, you are doing so on your terms – when it is convenient for you.
If you find that you need to replace your heat pump, give Edwards Royal Comfort a call. Our trained techs can install a new heat pump system quickly and efficiently.
