If you’re looking for heat pump services, look no further than the experts at Sherlock Air. We will provide you with comprehensive expertise paired with unmatched customer service.

Need reliable, affordable heat pump repairs for your Vista or Encinitas home? Contact the heat pump experts at Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air today by calling 760-295-5014 or booking your services online!

Oftentimes, heat pump repairs can be traced back to a faulty installation job. That’s why it’s important to have your heat pump installation done right the first time by trained professionals. From there, regular heat pump maintenance and repairs should always be performed by certified technicians to increase the efficiency and service life of your system.

Professional maintenance includes:

  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Checking coils for refrigerant leaks
  • Checking the drainage system for clogging
  • Lubricating moving components
  • Fully testing all electrical components
  • Deep cleaning the system
  • Visually inspecting your duct system
  • Checking your thermostat’s function

Whether it’s noisy operation or poor performance, your system could be sending you signals that it’s in need of a check-up. Here are the top four critical signs to watch for:

  • A frozen compressor
  • Failure to work in heating mode
  • Rising heating costs
  • Inadequate heating or cooling

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, give our specially trained technicians a call today. We have the industry expertise necessary to fix a range of problems, from minor issues to full heat pump replacement services.

Stay ahead of any major issues by scheduling heat pump repair or heat pump maintenance! Call Sherlock Air at 760-295-5014 or schedule your appointment online today!

Why isn’t my heat pump working?

There are a number of reasons your heat pump is performing poorly. It could be as simple as a wrong setting or as major as a faulty part. Before you call for service, make sure the mode and temperature settings are correct.

How long do heat pumps last?

While several factors play a role in the life of a heat pump, they normally last an average of 15 years when installed properly. Regular maintenance is key in lengthening the life span of your heat pump.

Why is my heat pump blowing cold air?

The most common cause of cold air coming from your heat pump (when it should be warm) is low refrigerant levels. You could also be facing an issue with the reversing valve, dirty coils, or a frozen unit that switches your system to defrost mode.

How can I tell if I need heat pump repairs or replacement?

If your heat pump isn’t running as efficiently as it had been, it likely needs to be inspected by a professional. Strange noises, changes in heating bills, and hard-to-clean parts are all important signs to watch out for.

If your North County home has an existing heat pump that needs reliable repairs, we are the team to call. We are committed to superior customer service paired with in-depth industry knowledge.
