Heat pumps are an environmentally responsible, cost effective way to provide home heating and cooling. However, like any heating and cooling system, they can sometimes experience issues that may require repair or maintenance. The best way to avoid costly repair costs is with planned preventative maintenance by experienced technicians.
If you have a heat pump that isn’t working, the first thing to check is if your thermostat is set correctly and if the unit’s circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped. It’s also important to check for airflow blockages and dirty filters. You should also listen for any strange noises coming from your heat pump. If you hear banging, rattling, or screeching noises, this is often a sign of a serious problem and should be addressed immediately by a professional heat pump technician at Jones Services.
The average repair price for a heat pump depends on the part needed to be replaced, as well as the hourly labor rate of the technician. Air-to-air heat pumps are typically the least expensive to repair, while water source and geothermal heat pumps can be more expensive due to the difficulty of accessing parts. Repair prices can also increase during peak heating and cooling seasons.
If you notice your heat pump smelling musty or moldy, this is a sign of an internal rot problem and should be repaired as soon as possible. You should also contact a Jones Services technician if you notice any burning smells from your heat pump, as this could indicate a fire hazard and should be repaired immediately.
