We’re having an unusually cold early winter in Southern California, with mornings and evenings that can dip into the 40s and hover in the 50s. Yes, we can hear people in Minnesota and New York laughing at our definition of “cold,” but it’s still cold enough to make it necessary to switch heat pumps into their heating mode. This is one of the great reasons to have a heat pump—it mostly does the job of an AC, but when you need heat for the mild winters, the heat pump has you covered with relatively inexpensive warmth. It’s much cheaper and more effective (not to mention safer) to run a heat pump than to use a space heater.
But if you’re reading this, it’s because your heat pump isn’t working right and you think you need heater repair in West Hollywood, CA. There are a few simple checks you can make before calling our technicians, such as examining the thermostat settings and changing a clogged HVAC filter. But the problems below usually require the help of trained techs like ours.
