Troubleshooting Your Heat Pump

We never suggest opening up your system or interacting with its complex components, but there are a few things you can do before calling a technician. Before calling in a repairman, first ensure the breaker has not been tripped or the fuse has not been blown, if you have a fuse box. Although a tripped breaker is not common, it can happen, especially if you haven’t had routine pump maintenance. Next, you can check for a reset button, which is on many of the newer heat pumps. You can find this located usually on the front of the outdoor unit, and all you need to do is push this to reset. Be aware that this may only temporarily fix the problem, and if the problem reoccurs you should call a repair service.

Signs You Need To Repair Your Heat Pump

It is always best practice to call a professional repair service as soon as you notice any problems with your heating system. Putting this off can result in bigger issues and higher repair costs in the future. If you notice any of the following issues with your heat pump, call Vines Restoration, Plumbing & HVAC for diagnoses and repair.

  • Trouble heating or cooling
  • Strange noises
  • The heat pump is not blowing air
  • Uneven temperatures

Common Heat Pump Repairs

Electrical Failure

Your heat pumps compressor and fan motors run on electricity. Electrical failure is a fairly common reason for a pump repair. It could be that some of the electrical components need to be replaced, which should only be done by a professional.

Refrigerant Leaks

Like traditional air conditioners, a heat pump works by utilizing refrigerant to transfer heat from one location to another. In both winter and summer, this refrigerant is necessary to operate your heat pump, so a leak is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately. If not addressed, a leak can cause damage to the compressor and affect cooling.

When a technician comes out, they will repair any leaks they find in the refrigerant line and recharge the refrigerant. This will have your system working effectively and efficiently again. If your system does not seem to be heating or cooling as well, or you hear strange hissing sounds, this can be an indication of a refrigerant leak. It is time to call in a repair professional.

Broken Reversing Valve

The reversing valve is a key component of the heat pump because it is what allows the flow of refrigerant to reverse, giving you the ability to switch from heating mode to cooling mode and vice versa. If this valve gets stuck in one position, it prevents you from switching between cooling and heating modes. An expert will be able to easily replace this faulty valve for you and have your system up and running again.

Icing Over Of Outdoor Unit

Heat is absorbed in the summer and released in the winter through the outdoor coil. Oftentimes, in winter, the outdoor unit develops a layer of frost. Your heat pump should have a defrost cycle that runs when this happens, but if too much ice builds up the unit can become blocked entirely, which leads to many serious issues. If this ever happens, you should contact a repair service right away. If this issue goes on too long it can put a terrible strain on your system, which can eventually lead to a breakdown.
