Common Heat Pump Problems

Heat pumps carry a heavier responsibility than any singular A/C unit or furnace. Since your heat pump heats and cools your home, when it breaks down, it’s a big deal, no matter what season it is. Here are four of the most common heat pump problems:

Smoke Detector

Freezing Up, Ice Formation

During the wintertime, heat pump’s use an outdoor coil to release heat. In the summer, on the other hand, this same coil absorbs the heat. As such, it’s not uncommon for frosting or even a layer of ice to form on the outdoor unit’s casing during the winter if it’s working hard. If you find frost forming on the casing like this, we suggest removing it because if it continues to accumulate and turns into a layer of ice, it can cause further problems. In any case, heat pumps are supposed to run defrost cycles to defrost themselves on their own.


Refrigerant Leak

Like the way an A/C unit works, heat pumps utilize refrigerants to transfer heat from one place to another. Because these refrigerants are used in both the summer and during the wintertime, if any kind of refrigerant leakage develops, additional problems will follow. Heat pump refrigerant leakage makes the system unable to do its job. Without it, it can’t absorb and transfer the heat it needs to transfer to provide warm and cool air. In little time, this can damage the compressor, which is an expensive part, while decreasing comfort levels.

Air Filter

Electrical Problems

Because heat pumps utilize electricity to power their fan motors and compressors, electrical issues are a common cause of heat pump problems. Defective or malfunctioning electrical components, or bad wiring, should be replaced by a NATE-certified professional who insured, like we are, for obvious safety reasons.


Defective Reversing Valve

In order to switch modes from heat to cold and back, heat pumps come with an all-too-important “reversing valve” that permits the system to reverse the flow of its refrigerants when the seasons change. This valve is important because it enables the homeowner to switch from “cooling mode” during the summer to “heating mode” during the wintertime.

Common Heat Pump Questions & Answers

Is a heat pump as good as an air conditioner?

The short answer is yes, a heat pump can be just as good as an air conditioner. Heat pumps use less energy than traditional systems and can also switch from cooling to heating mode, allowing them to work all year round. Additionally, heat pumps are more efficient in areas that experience mild temperatures during the winter months, allowing for maximum efficiency and savings over a traditional system. Thus, the choice of which type of HVAC system will depend on your particular needs and climate location.

When do heat pumps need maintenance?

Heat pumps are complex pieces of machinery that require regular maintenance to ensure they are running efficiently and effectively. Heat pumps need to be maintained annually, or more often if they are being used in high-demand applications such as swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs. During routine maintenance, a technician will inspect and clean all the parts of the heat pump.

What is the average lifespan of a heat pump?

The average lifespan of a heat pump depends on a few different factors. Generally, the lifespans of heat pumps range from 10 to 20 years, with some models lasting even longer with proper maintenance and care. Generally speaking, the higher quality and more efficient the model, the longer its lifespan. Heat pumps are typically built for durability, as long as they are properly maintained.

Using a qualified, licensed technician such as Greater Columbus Furnace & Air Conditioning to install your equipment and perform regular maintenance is essential.
