How to Get Your Heat Pump Working

If your heat pump is constantly running in winter or summer, you may need to consider getting a heat pump repair. A number of problems can cause this, including refrigerant leaks, a clogged air filter, a dirty outdoor coil, and compressor issues. If you suspect any of these problems, contact a repair technician as soon as possible. Here are some tips to get your heat pumps working properly again. First, check the thermostat settings. If they’re accurate, you should be able to fix the problem yourself.

Next, look for signs of damage or corrosion. This will indicate that the outdoor unit needs to be cleaned or replaced. A dirty system may be causing too much heat loss. Finally, if the outdoor unit is iced over, it could be a refrigerant charge issue or valve problem. It’s important to contact a professional for a thorough inspection. You’ll need to have the outdoor unit inspected. If there’s any ice, you need to have it removed or recapped. If this is not the case, the problem may be a compressor or valve problem.

The first step in heat pump repair is to check the power source to your system. If the heat pump is plugged into an electrical outlet, it might not receive power. In this case, the circuit breakers protect your furnace and its condenser. If you’ve noticed that the circuit breakers are tripping, check the main electrical panel and all of its subpanels. If they’re not tripping, you may need to reset them. A short in the electrical system could cause the unit to stop functioning. In this case, you should call an electrical contractor to come and inspect your heating and cooling systems.
