      Addressing Common Heat Pump Problems the Right Way

      The winter season isn’t over yet, so you’ll need to rely on your heat pump to keep your home warm and cozy for a while longer. But have you ever experienced problems with your heat pump? If it isn’t drawing enough heat during the winter, for instance, this can be caused by several issues that need to be addressed immediately. A DIY repair isn’t recommended either; it must be performed by an experienced air conditioning repair and maintenance contractor to prevent future problems later on.  

      Addressing Common Heat Pump Problems the Right Way

      Here Superior Air shares some of the typical heat pump problems you might encounter:

      Frozen heat pump. The outdoor unit of your heat pump can get covered with snow and ice during the winter season. This can affect its ability to draw heat in from outside and distribute it throughout your house. Depending on how it freezes over, you might need a professional to address the issue. But if it’s simply that a pile of snow has accumulated over and around your heat pump, just clear it out carefully with a shovel.

      Low refrigerant levels. If your heat pump isn’t providing adequate heat for your home, this could be due to a refrigerant leak in the unit. A low level of refrigerant can cause the pump to overheat while barely providing enough heat to keep your home comfortable. This can lead to premature breakdown and costly repairs if not addressed immediately. Make sure to get your heat pump serviced by a trusted heating and air conditioning installation professional to ensure your pump works properly.

      Dirty air filter. If your air filter isn’t being cleaned or replaced regularly, dirt, debris and other particulate matter can easily build up and block airflow to the evaporator coil. This prevents your heat pump from effectively drawing in heat from the outdoors and circulating it throughout your house. It’s important to change your filter right before the start of winter to ensure proper airflow. It must be cleaned or replaced every three months or so after that, depending on how often you use the system.

      Only Superior Air ensures that each heating or air conditioning maintenance visit and repair is done with speed and efficiency. Call us today at (559) 734-2002 or contact us through our online request form. We serve customers in Tulare and neighboring areas in CA.
