Common Chicago Heat Pump Repairs

Heat pumps are one of the most popular and efficient heating and air conditioning systems on the market. But because they provide both heating and cooling, they tend to get a lot of use. All of that use can cause small problems and issues to develop with your equipment. Call the Chicago heat pump repair technicians at Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning if you’re having any problems with your heat pump. Our technicians have years of experience working with all different types and brands of heat pumps. Even if we didn’t install your heat pump, our technicians can definitely repair it. Here are a few of the most common heat pump repairs that we get called for.

Heat Pump Not Heating or Cooling Enough

This is a very common problem with heat pumps and is sometimes caused by a clogged air filter. Your heat pump will have an air filter located in the inside unit to protect the moving parts from dust, dirt and insects. If it gets clogged it will restrict the flow of air into your home and thus restrict the amount of heating and cooling you’ll receive. But this problem can also be caused by a broken compressor, a bad fan motor, or a faulty thermostat.

Heat Pump Makes Strange Noises

When your heat pump starts to make new or unusual noises, it is often a sign that you need to call for repair. Contact the Chicago heat pump repair technicians at Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning for any services that you need. If your heat pump squeals when you turn it on, the fan’s belt may have gone bad. A hissing noise can be caused by a leaking compressor or refrigerant leak in the coils. Grinding could be the motor bearings that need lubrication or to be replaced.

Benefits of Chicago Heat Pump Maintenance

Because of all the use that your heat pump gets, it will likely start to develop small problems and issues at some point.

When you call the Chicago heat pump maintenance experts at Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning, we will visit your home on a regular basis to inspect, clean, and repair every component of your heat pump.
