5 Signs Your Heat Pump Should Be Mended

Now that you have heard some of the usual factors of heat pump damage, it could be good to hear how those problems begin. Here are some prevalent signs something is going awry with your heat pump.

1. Heat Pump Covered in Ice

During the winter, it’s likely that your outdoor equipment will have some ice development. When this happens, your equipment should switch into a defrost cycle and reverse the refrigerant to melt the ice. If your full unit is layered in ice and does not defrost, you have a concern that needs skilled help.

2. Heat Pump is Short Cycling

By short cycling, we mean that your heat pump starts and cycles off before it’s had time to deliver your house to your preferred temperature. This is a signal that your heat pump is incorrectly sized for your space. If you don’t get it repaired, it could deteriorate your heat pump.

4. Heat Pump is Noisy

Your heat pump won’t always be completely noiseless, but it also shouldn’t be noticeably loud. If you’re picking up new sounds from your system—especially any that sound incorrect—you may want to have a professional look it over.

Common Origins of Heat Pump Issues

There are quite a few issues that can cause trouble for your heat pump. Following are a handful of the most well-known repairs.
  • Absence of service. Like you, your unit needs to be taken care of to remain in good shape. You have a regular checkup. Your unit has annual maintenance. You should call in an HVAC pro two times a year to help your unit stay healthy. Without maintenance, you’re leaving your system at risk for a real problem later on.
  • Blocked filter. One of the simplest ways to keep your heat pump working correctly is to frequently check and change your air filter. If you ignore it, your unit has to labor harder to keep your family cozy. Running overtime like that can lead to damage, and later, a service call.
  • Device failure. Your unit is made of a variety of parts—both moving and stationary. They’re all critical to heating and cooling your space efficiently. When a lone component stops working, it can make it hard—or impossible—for your heat pump to function without a service call.
  • Thermostat troubles. Your thermostat is a sensitive instrument. Any problem with it could make your home less comfortable.


Should I Repair or Replace My Heat Pump?

When your unit fails, it seems only expected to call for a fix. Occasionally, a repair isn’t worth the money. In those times, a new unit is a better choice. Here are some factors that can help you decide if a mend is a better option:
  • Your unit is less than 10 years old. If your heat pump is still relatively young, a repair likely makes sense. It still offers a lot of life left for you. However, if your heat pump is aging, a new unit might make more financial sense.
  • You haven’t fixed your heat pump many times. If a mend on your system is a fairly unfrequent occurrence, you may want to go ahead with the fix. If you feel like you’ve been mending your unit pretty often, it might be time to contemplate a new unit.
  • The mend you need is inexpensive. If specialist can resolve of your issue quickly and the charge is relatively low, a fix is probably your best choice. Although, if your repair will set you back a large amount—like exchanging your heat pump’s compressor—it’s probably better to put those savings into a current heat pump that will serve you for a lot longer.
