4 Signs Your Heat Pump Compressor Needs Replacing

Do you use a heat pump to stay warm in winter and cool in summer? It’s important to replace the heat pump compressor in your North Las Vegas, NV, home when you suspect it’s going bad. The signs of this include:

Blows Warm Air in Cooling Mode

This is one of the first signs that your heat pump compressor isn’t working properly. When your system only blows warm air when in cooling mode, it’s time to seek assistance from a certified service specialist.

Electrical Issues

Electrical issues are a key sign the compressor is on its deathbed, and these electrical issues can be difficult to track down. A professional who specializes in repairing heating and cooling equipment can troubleshoot and repair the problem.

Loud Noises

Occasionally, the noise itself may not indicate damage, but it can be a sign that parts need replacing soon. Several different issues can be the underlying cause of a loud noise, such as a frayed fan belt or loose screws. If your heat pump compressor is still working but making noise while doing so, call us to expertly assess the problem at hand.

Diminished Airflow

Depending on what you’re experiencing, a diminished airflow could be due to a host of things. But in the case of your heat pump compressor, it’s likely due to a clogged filter. Keep filters clean and clear at all times, and be sure to schedule routine maintenance with a service specialist to avoid costly breakdowns.
