4 Common Heat Pump Problems

We hope you and your family are staying cool in your relaxing homes this summer. We at Five Star Heating & Cooling highlight 4 common heat pump repairs we make throughout the summer season:

Broken Reversing Valve

All heat pumps have what is called a “reversing valve.” This valve allows the system to reverse its refrigerant flow, allowing users to switch from “cooling mode” during the summertime to “heating mode” during the wintertime as needed. Occasionally, this “reversing valve” can malfunction, become defective, and remain stuck in a single position. If you cannot switch your heat pump’s modes to reverse its flow, make sure to call us immediately. We can replace these faulty valves quickly, safely, and effectively.

Frost and Ice Formation

Throughout the wintertime, heat pumps release heat using an outdoor coil. During the summertime, however, this same coil absorbs the heat. As such, during the winter, it’s not uncommon for a layer of frost to form on a heat pump’s outdoor unit. If you have a heat pump and frost starts forming on it, remove it as often as possible. Because heat pumps are supposed to be defrosting themselves on their own, we suggest giving us a call.

Electricial Problems

Because heat pumps use electricity to operate their fan motors and compressors, electrical malfunction are a common cause of problems with heat pumps. If you suspect your heat pump is having an electrical problem, call us! Electrical parts should always be replaced by a professional for obvious safety reasons. Need an electrician? We offer electrical services in Central Ohio!

Refrigerant Leak

Heat pumps function a lot like AC. Not only do they look a lot alike, but they both also use refrigerants to transfer heat from one place to another. With these refrigerants being used so much, if your heat pump develops a refrigerant leak, it will lead to additional problems. Low refrigerant levels prevent heat pumps from absorbing and transferring heat, which can cause damage to the compressor.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Seasonal AC Maintenance in Hamilton County & Surrounding Areas

Because most of the problems that tend to harm heat pumps are the types of problems that go unseen until the damage is severe, it’s never a good idea to wait for symptoms of a problem and address it. You can be proactive and put some insurance on this expensive equipment. The best way to do that, and address potential issues that might not exhibit symptoms, is to have a professional perform preventative maintenance each year.

Maintenance enables an expert to closely inspect your HVAC system and isolate any problems that might be developing below the surface. In doing so, we can repair any sort of issues before they proliferate into problems that damage the system. Consistent maintenance can decrease the odds of serious damage by up to 90 and increase the system’s energy efficiency by up to 40% while extending its lifespan. Usually, homeowners who are regular with maintenance save money in repair costs over the life of the average system, which is made to last longer.
