Signs Your Moreno Valley, CA Heat Pump Should Be Repaired

Excessive Noise

The most noticeable sound from an HVAC system is the continuous hum, which is normal. Other sounds such as clicking, buzzing, rattling, and screeching can be an indication that it is time to have the system checked for potential problems, such as loose parts, a failing motor, or outdoor debris affecting the fan. 

Higher Electric Bills

There are several reasons electric bills increase, starting with a system that hasn’t been properly serviced or maintained. The result is a dirty HVAC system that must work harder and run longer to maintain an appropriate temperature. This puts unnecessary stress on the system that can lead to replacement or repair.

Poor Temperature Control

When an HVAC system has not been sized properly to accommodate the total square footage of the home, it results in a system that won’t be able to accurately create the proper airflow to cool and heat the interior. This can lead to rooms being uncomfortably cold or hot. 

Strange Odors

Strange odors coming from an HVAC system may seem odd, but it is common. Smelly examples include electrical/burning, rotten egg smell, and musty, moldy odors. The problem may be as simple as a dirty filter or a build-up of condensation resulting in mold, or a more serious problem, such as a burning smell that can mean the system is overheating. 

Ice Forming

When an HVAC system shows signs of ice forming, it can be the result of several things, such as the evaporator coil being too low on refrigerant, which means the refrigerant is leaking out. Other issues that can cause the formation of ice include a dirty coil, restricted airflow, damaged valves, or a broken fan.

Short Cycling

When your system continually runs on, then off, then on and off again, the system is operating on a short cycle, which puts excessive strain on the system. Reasons for short cycling include frozen evaporator coils, a dirty air filter, electrical issues, and systems that are too large for the area they’re covering.

How to Tell If You Should Repair or Replace Your Heat Pump

If your heat pump isn’t functioning properly, homeowners have a choice between replacing it or having it repaired by a qualified technician. Replacing the system can be costly, not only in the price, but also in the time and inconvenience of having an entire system removed and a new system installed. The alternative option of having the heat pump repaired has several advantages. Repair services can be a more cost-effective way to deal with the problems your heat pump is experiencing. If the warranty is still in place, you will want to take advantage of the coverage it provides, which is also cost-effective.

If the heat pump is less than 10 years old, this is another reason to choose repair, since the average lifespan of a heat pump is about 15 years. If it is less than 10 years of age, and, during that time it has not required any repairs, opt for repair versus replacement. Chances are whatever isn’t working properly can be fixed. Finally, once the problem with the heat pump has been identified as a minor issue and one that can be fixed by a qualified technician, having it repaired is the best option.
