4 Common Heat Pump Problems

We hope you and your family are staying cool in your relaxing homes this summer. We at Five Star Heating & Cooling Dayton highlight 4 common air conditioner repairs we make throughout the summer season:

Unit is Iced Over

The outdoor coil is where heat is released in the winter and absorbed in the summer. In the winter, it is common for a layer of frost to develop on the outdoor unit. However, your heat pump should be running a defrost cycle to eliminate this frost because if too much ice builds up, it can block the team entirely, leading to all sorts of issues. If this happens, you must contact a professional right away, as this issue puts immense strain on your system and can eventually lead to a system break down.

Electrical Problems

Because heat pumps use electricity to operate their fan motors and compressors, electrical malfunction is a common cause of problems with heat pumps. If you suspect your heat pump is having an electrical problem, call us! Electrical parts should always be replaced by a professional for obvious safety reasons. Need an electrician? Choose Five Star!

Refrigerant Leak

Your heat pump works much like an air conditioner, utilizing refrigerant flow to transfer heat from one place to another. Refrigerant is necessary for the operation of your heat pump in winter and summer, so when there is a leak, you can surely expect some issues to follow. A leak in the refrigerant line means there isn’t enough to properly absorb and transfer heat, which can cause damage to the compressor and impact your comfort.

Broken Reversing Valve

The reversing valve allows the heat pump to reverse the flow of refrigerant, allowing you to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode”. Sometimes though, the reversing valve may fail and get stuck in one position, preventing you from switching between heating and cooling modes. If this happens, be sure to hire an expert who can replace the faulty valve for you.
