Out for These Heat Pump

Keep an Eye Out for These Heat Pump Problems

Monday, April 11th, 2016 at 11:00 am

As you start to rely on your heat pump more and more often, the wear and tear on the system is going to increase. The more wear and tear on the system, the more likely it will be for your heat pump to develop problems. If you want to keep your heat pump in good condition, you should be able to identify problems as quickly as possible so that you can have them repaired. Let's take a look at some common heat pump problems you need to watch for.


If there is ice forming on the inside unit of your heat pump it means that there's a problem with the coil. Heat pumps move heat from one place to another by evaporating and condensing refrigerant in coils, one located in each unit. In cooling mode, the indoor coil evaporates refrigerant to absorb heat from inside the home. The refrigerant is then sent to the outdoor coil and condensed to release the heat out of the home. If the refrigerant level in the system drops, or the flow of air is cut off, the inside coil will ice over and be unable to operate properly. You should call for repairs as soon as you see ice on your heat pump.

Refrigerant Leaks

Heat pumps don't consume refrigerant, they simply recycle it back and forth to move heat from one place to another. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, it will drain the system of the fluid it needs to operate. The output of the system will steadily drop along with the refrigerant level, eventually resulting in a series of breakdowns and failure of the system. If you notice fluid of any kind dripping from your system, you should call for repairs right away.
