Does Your Heat Pump Need Repair?
A heat pump that won’t turn on is in obvious need of repair, but a heat pump will generally give you signs it needs professional attention before getting to that point. A sudden spike in your electric bill is often one of the first indications you need heat pump repair, which is why home and business owners should track their energy consumption on a month-to-month and year-to-year basis. You should also watch for unusual noises and smells, long or short cycling, warm or cold spots, inconsistent temperatures, and increased dust accumulation.

How a Heat Pump Works
A heat pump is a lot like a refrigerator or air conditioner in that it transfers heat energy. The main difference between a heat pump and an air conditioner is that the heat pump has a reversing valve that allows it to transfer energy in the other direction and thus provide heating in addition to cooling. The transfer of heat is achieved through a compressor, which moves refrigerant, and a heat exchanger. Air-source heat pumps are the most prevalent type of heat pumps currently used. These units transfer energy to and from the ambient air. Geothermal heating is an alternative that will likely become more prevalent in the future. These units transfer energy to and from the ground or a large body of water.
The Benefits of Timely Heat Pump Repair
Sanks Mechanical encourages you to call us for heat pump repair as soon as you’re aware of a problem. Issues will only worsen with time and become more expensive to fix. Energy efficiency is another concern. A malfunctioning heat pump will typically consume more electricity and thus cost you more on a monthly basis. Routine maintenance, on the other hand, will lower your monthly costs, help you avoid expensive and unexpected repairs, and extend the life of your equipment thereby lowering your total cost of ownership.
