Client Reviews & Testimonials
Why do I need a heat pump tune-up?
By scheduling regular preventative heat pump maintenance, you can avoid expensive breakdowns or malfunctions. If you notice any of the following symptoms, we recommend scheduling a call with our team at Blair Mechanical, as these symptoms may indicate a potential problem with your heat pump:
Refrigerant Line Leak in Your Heat Pump
Is your heat pump unit running but failing to heat or cool your home? This could indicate a refrigerant line leak in your heat pump, which transports heat or cold between your home and the outdoors.
Does your heat pump frequently cycle on and off?
If your heat pump is constantly turning on and off without completing a full heating or cooling cycle, it is experiencing short cycling. This can lead to significant problems that accelerate unit wear and shorten the heat pump’s lifespan.
Heat Pump Stuck in Cooling Mode
This may be due to a malfunctioning reversing valve, which is responsible for switching the flow of refrigerant between heating and cooling modes.
Unusual Noises Emanating from Your Heat Pump
Are you hearing grinding, hissing, gurgling, or other unusual sounds from your heat pump? While these noises may not pinpoint a specific problem, they are abnormal and likely indicate the need for repair.
No matter the problem, our heat pump repair technicians will assess the necessary repairs before commencing any work. This ensures that you receive a clear understanding of the most suitable solution for your home’s heat pump unit.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Should I purchase a heat pump or an air conditioner?
If your home requires both heating and cooling, a heat pump can fulfill both functions, whereas an air conditioner is exclusively designed for cooling purposes. Regardless of which you choose, it’s important to evaluate the specific sizes, cooling capabilities, and efficiency ratings before deciding which to install.
How often should I change the air filters in my heat pump?
When you use your heat pump daily, we recommend replacing the air filters in your heat pump monthly. During less demanding seasons, changing the air filters every 6 weeks or every 2-3 months is typically sufficient.
My existing heat pump is not providing enough heat for my home. Should I replace it with a new, larger pump?
We do not advise replacing your heat pump with a larger pump, as the existing ductwork is already sized for your current heat pump, and installing a larger unit would necessitate additional ductwork. The underlying issue could stem from undersized ductwork, inadequate system design, or improper installation. To identify and address these problem areas, you may need to modify your ductwork, conduct a heat load calculation, or even undergo an energy audit.
What are the advantages of professional heat pump maintenance?
Investing in professional heat pump maintenance offers multiple benefits. It prolongs the lifespan of your system, reducing the likelihood of expensive repairs in the future, and it optimizes system efficiency, leading to lower energy bills.
How do I know my heat pump needs to be serviced?
Certain indicators may suggest that your heat pump requires servicing. These include unusual noises emanating from the unit, inadequate air circulation, escalating energy bills, or rooms that are excessively warm or cold. If you observe any of these warning signs, it is advisable to promptly reach out to a professional HVAC technician for a thorough inspection and servicing of your heat pump.
What is included in a heat pump maintenance service?
During a maintenance service, a skilled HVAC technician will perform a comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and tuning of your heat pump. This includes assessing refrigerant levels, examining all system components, cleaning air filters and coils, lubricating moving parts, calibrating thermostats, and conducting tests to ensure proper operation. The technician may also assess energy efficiency, inspect ductwork, and address any safety concerns. We also advise requesting an inspection of other heating system components, such as gas lines or furnace units, for a thorough evaluation.
