5 Indications Your Heat Pump Needs to Be Mended

Now that you have heard some of the basic causes of heat pump damage, it might be helpful to understand how those issues come about. Here are some common signs something is wrong with your heat pump.

1. Heat Pump Coated in Ice

During the winter, it’s viable that your outdoor unit will have a bit of ice development. When this occurs, your equipment should shift into a defrost cycle and reverse the refrigerant to melt the ice. If your whole unit is covered in ice and does not defrost, you have a problem that needs professional service.

2. Heat Pump is Short Cycling

By short cycling, we mean that your heat pump turns on and turns off before it’s had the opportunity to bring your space to your chosen temperature. This is a signal that your heat pump is incorrectly sized for your space. And if it isn’t taken care of, it could deteriorate your heat pump.

Common Causes of Heat Pump Issues

There are various things that can cause trouble for your equipment. Here are a handful of the most experienced repairs.
  • Absence of service. Like you, your unit needs to be cared for to stay in good condition. You have a yearly checkup. Your heat pump has annual maintenance. You should call in an HVAC professional two times a year to help your heat pump stay healthy. Without maintenance, you’re leaving your heat pump at risk for a real problem later on.
  • Blocked filter. One of the simplest ways to keep your heat pump alright is to regularly look at and change your air filter. If you let it go, your heat pump has to labor harder to keep you comfortable. Working overtime like that could bring about damage, and potentially, a repair.
  • Component failure. Your system includes a number of components—both moving and stationary. They’re all important to heating and cooling your house efficiently. When a single component breaks down, it can make it challenging—or impossible—for your system to keep working without a fix.
  • Thermostat issues. Your thermostat is a precise instrument. Any trouble with it could make your family less cozy.

 

Should I Fix or Change My Heat Pump?

When your system stops working, it seems only normal to call for a fix. Every now and then, a fix isn’t worth the money. In those times, a replacement is a better choice. Here are some points that can help you decide if a fix is a better solution:
  • Your unit is less than 10 years old. If your system is still fairly young, a repair likely is smart. It still holds a lot of life left in it. However, if your heat pump is getting older, a new model might make more financial sense.
  • You haven’t repaired your heat pump multiple times. If a fix on your system is a relatively uncommon situation, you may want to follow through with the mend. If you feel like you’ve been fixing your system a lot, it may be time to think about a replacement.
  • The fix you require is low-cost. If specialist can take care of your issue fast and the price is relatively low, a fix is probably your definitive choice. However, if your repair will take you for a lot—like exchanging your heat pump’s compressor—it’s probably better to put those savings into a new heat pump that will function for years to come.
