  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Inspect that your registers are all exposed and unobstructed. If the trouble keeps up, call in a pro to learn why your system is malfunctioning or out of balance.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
