Top 4 Heat Pump Repairs
In our years of experience, we’ve come to find that if you’re having issues with your heat pump, it’s likely one of the top 4 most common heat pump problems that other homeowners are also dealing with. To help you determine when it’s appropriate to call a licensed HVAC technician, we’ve composed the following list of common heat pump repairs:
A heat pump’s exterior coil is where heat gets released during the winter and gets absorbed during the summer. During the colder months of winter, it’s not uncommon for a layer of frost to solidify on the outdoor unit. However, it shouldn’t be doing this. Your heat pump should be running a defrost cycle to remove this frost because if it builds up too much and forms a layer of ice, it can obstruct the unit and create all sorts of problems, and it can eventually lead to a system breakdown.
Reversing Valve Failure
A heat pump’s “reversing valve” is what enables the system to switch the flow of refrigerant around, giving homeowners the ability to alternate between “cooling mode” and “heating mode.” Occasionally, this reversing valve fails and ends up stuck in one position, which prevents you from switching between these two modes. If this happens, make sure to give us a call to properly replace the faulty valve for you.
Because refrigerant is needed for the operation of your heat pump in both the winter and the summer, if there is a leak, you can expect some problems to follow. Any leakage in the refrigerant line and soon there won’t be enough to adequately absorb and transfer the heat, which can damage your compressor and compromise your comfort. Our professional heat pump repair technicians will seal up any leakage in your line and recharge the refrigerant to restore your system and prevent further problems.
Heat pumps use electricity to power their fan motors and compressors. As such, electrical problems are another prevalent reason for heat pump repairs. If this is the case, often you will need to replace electrical components, which should always be done by a professional.
