Heat Pump Repair Warning Signs

Mode jamming. The reversing valve is the part that changes between the heat pump's cooling and heating modes and when it fails, you won't be able to change modes.

Ice/Frost Accumulation. A properly working heat pump is very efficient at defrosting, so seeing ice or front on the heat pump indicated there is a larger issue at hand.

Poor Air Flow. Caused by a wide range of problems, but all of them if left unchecked will result in the system overheating or failing.

Strange Sounds. If you hear strange sounds such as banging, squealing or clanking these are indicators of wear and damage which has to be addressed immediately to avoid more serious damage or failure of the heat pump.

Increasing Energy Bills. Heat Pumps are popular with homeowners due to their efficiency and lower cost to operate. If you notice your energy bill is creeping up, you should have your system looked at to see what is causing the increased power usage.

Heat Pump Repair FAQ

  • Can I repair my heat pump myself?

    Basic troubleshooting and maintenance like checking the circuit board or clearing the outdoor unit of debris and clutter can be done by home owners, however we do not advise home owners to try to repair a heat pump themselves. Heat pumps are very complicated systems that require expert training and knowledge to effectively troubleshoot and properly repair.

  • Does my noisy heat pump need repair?

    Heat pumps are louder than boilers and furnaces, but a heat pump that is suddenly louder and/or making strange noises is a definite cause of concern and you should call a professional right away.

  • My heatpump isn't heating/cooling like it used to. Does it need repair?

    The typical lifespan of a heat pump is around 15 years. If the heat pump in your home is under 10 years and the performance is noticeable lower than it used to be, it may be in need of repair. Often a tune up, changing filters and lubricate, clean and calibration will have it returned to optimal performance.
