Common Issues with Heat Pumps
If your home has a heat pump that provides both heating and cooling throughout the entire building, you may have twice as many problems with which to contend. A heat pump operates differently than a traditional air conditioning unit. When it comes to troubleshooting any problems, it is best to call in a professional repair technician.
During the winter, some of the most common heat pump issues involve icing. Your heat pump’s outdoor unit may become covered in ice or frost. This is entirely natural, but can hurt the pump’s functioning. The unit should go into defrost mode automatically; if it does not, you need to call in a technician.
In the summer, your pump may struggle to reach a set temperature, which causes another common issue: the heat pump running continuously all day long. This is a drain on your resources and means that your pump should be examined.
How do you know it’s time for Heat Pump Replacement?
You can watch for a few different signs to determine when it is time to replace a heat pump. The most common is old age; over time, the heat pump will begin to falter. If your heat pump is more than ten years old, you should consider installing a new unit.
You should also think about replacement if you notice any cool patches or overly hot spots in the house. Call in a repair technician to examine the heat pump; our team of experts will offer their professional opinion on the pros and cons of heat pump replacement. Other common reasons to replace a heat pump are a rising energy bill or an increasing need for repairs. These are both symptoms of a larger problem. While a technician can fix both issues, if they continue to occur, it is time to replace your heat pump!
What kind of warranty can I expect with a heat pump system?
Many heat pumps can be covered by a limited warranty. These terms are typically available if the product is registered within a certain timeframe. For complete, detailed information on your heat pump’s warranty coverage, visit the product page or contact your manufacturer directly. A heat pump is a major purchase for your home, so you’ll want to make sure you fully understand the warranty before you buy.
Make sure you talk over what the manufacturer’s limited warranty covers for the pump you’ve selected and if upgrading it with an optional extended warranty is right for you. Warranties are for residential use only; some exclusions may apply. Give us a call with whatever questions you may have about Heat Pump repairs and warranties.
