If your loft is more than 3 decades old, it’s most likely that parts of your heat pump may need repair or replacement.
Here are some signs that your heat pump may be in need of repair.
If you’re consistently having to adjust your thermostat, your heat pump requires repair. If the thermostat is having a taxing time maintaining an ambient temperature of your loft, that’s a sign of a bad thermostat. Buying another thermostat is not costly at all. However, you may want to think of upgrading to a smart thermostat with zone control that can be programmed via an app on your PC or PC. If you are experiencing frosty spots in your loft, your heat pump requires repair. Cold spots show that the air in your current loft is not being circulated as it should be. If you have frosty spots in your loft, you may have an air flow issue within your aircon system such as a plugged air filter or leaks in your air duct. Your aircon system filter should be replaced every 30 to 60 days, especially with dogs and cats around. Your air duct should be inspected every year or so to ensure that there are no leaks. If your heat pump is making noise, it shows the heat pump needs servicing by a professional HVAC dealer. With time, the parts of your heat pump will wear down or break needing to be replaced. Regular inspection plus maintenance by a licensed AC worker is the best way to ensure that your heat pump is in regular working order all year long. If you suppose your heat pump may be in need of repair, contact your local AC business.
