Common Heat Pump Problems and Options for Repair
The typical heat pump can provide you with 15 years or more of reliable heating and cooling. If you begin to experience a drop in comfort or notice other inefficiencies with your heat pump, contact us to have your system inspected.
Do you hear strange rattling or buzzing sounds coming from the heat pump’s outdoor unit? This can point to a problem with the fan motor or other components. We can help you resolve this problem by replacing the affected parts. If you have an older unit that is on its last legs, it might be more cost-effective to replace the full system. Your service technician will discuss your needs and go over the recommended solution.
This is a common problem that can affect oversized or undersized heat pumps. Your system may also short cycle if the air filter becomes clogged, or if there is damage to the blower motor. Our experts can help you determine the source of the problem and provide you with the best solution.
When outdoor temperatures reach a certain low point, your heat pump will go into defrost mode to keep from freezing. But if your system is currently suffering from existing issues (for example, a faulty component or low refrigerant levels), it will have trouble defrosting and will eventually freeze.
Lack of heating or cooling
Is your heat pump failing to keep you comfortable? Lack of heating or cooling can be caused by a variety of sources, including blocked air filters or coils, problems with the blower, or not enough refrigerant. Contact our experts for troubleshooting and learn more about your options for repair or replacement.
