“Yikes! My Heat Pump Won’t Switch to Heating Mode”

Monday, December 27th, 2021

We may not get as bitterly cold winters as our friends up north, but this doesn’t mean we don’t deal with chilly enough weather to need a reliable heating system. Many folks in our area choose a heat pump system to warm their homes. This is a great choice since they are highly efficient and effective for climates like ours–hot and humid summers with relatively mild winters.

Your heat pump has probably been pretty consistently in cooling mode, but now is the time to switch it to heating mode. But, what if you go to adjust your thermostat to do just that only to realize… nothing happened? Are you still getting cooled air from the vents? Or maybe it feels like the air is lukewarm instead of hot? This is an indication that something is wrong, but what?

While the problem might be a minor one that you can “fix” on your own (more on that in a moment), there’s a possibility that it’s more serious and you might need to call in a pro ASAP. Read on to learn more!

It may be pretty easy to ignore some of the noises that come from your home systems and appliances. It’s easy because really, we don’t want to admit that something is wrong that might need expensive and inconvenient repairs. However, ignoring certain noises could leave you with even more urgent and expensive repair needs.

While something like a rattle can be as simple as having a loose panel on your furnace cabinet, alternatively you might have a cracked heat exchanger, which is a much more harmful problem as it can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning in your home.

Here at Hendrix Air, we understand how important it is to protect your home, and that includes protecting and improving your comfort! If you hear any suspicious sounds coming from your furnace, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for an inspection. Read on to learn what some of these sounds might be.
