Signs You Need a Heat Pump Inspection
After using your heat pump for some time, its parts wear out, and it starts to malfunction. There are several common and obvious warning signs. The unit might fail to turn on. Most of the time this is a problem with the thermostat. But to be sure, consult a contractor that handles Heat Pump Services.
Another common warning sign is inadequate heating or cooling. This problem is often caused by dusty filters, damaged valves, leaky duct work, and poor thermostat settings. Also, if the unit is rattling as it runs, it needs inspection.
