How do I know if my heat pump is working properly?

If properly installed, your heat pump will channel air throughout the entire home while heating the building, depending on if your thermostat is set correctly to ‘heat’ or not. The heat pump is quite a complicated bit of machinery, though, and many home and business owners are unsure whether or not their system is working as it should.

The most common signs of a working heat pump show quiet the system is. The main way to tell if your system is working as intended is to simply listen to the unit running. You can hear the system when it turns on, when the fans begin to work and stop, and when air passes through the ducts. Other than that, the unit itself should be quiet, without any groaning or creaking sounds. Your motor, the biggest telltale sign of something wrong, will sound efficient.
