Heat Pump Repairs

A malfunctioning heat pump can result from a myriad of issues. Three commonly reported issues include:

  • Heat pump frozen
    In winter, a frozen heat pump could be the result of the defrost cycle not working, the outdoor fan not working, low refrigerant charge, the outdoor unit being physically blocked, or water dripping onto the unit and freezing. A frozen heat pump won’t heat, and worse, can lead to severe damage or failure if allowed to operate. During summer, a freeze up can happen on the indoor coil, or copper line leading to the compressor as a result of a low refrigerant issue, a clogged air filter or extremely dirty coils.
  • Running constantly
    In winter, check the thermostat to be sure the heat pump isn’t set for cooling. Other reasons may be a frozen outdoor coil, a compressor problem or a dirty and poorly maintained unit. In summer, check to be sure the system is not in heating mode. Other issues may be triple-digit temperatures, refrigerant leakage, or a dirty/clogged coil or air filter.
  • Blowing cold on heat mode
    Check to see the thermostat wasn’t changed to AC/cool mode. If not, the problem might be low refrigerant charge, or a reversing valve or compressor issue. It could also be the result of poor maintenance and a dirty/clogged coil.

If you are experiencing any of the above, we recommend contacting our office to schedule a heat pump repair immediately.
