How a Heat Pump Works
Even if you’ve just installed a new heat pump, it is important to monitor both your indoor and outdoor units for problems. Knowing how your heat pump works when it is operating normally will help make sure that you catch any problems early. If small repairs are made early, safety issues and major repair costs can be avoided. Some common signs of problems are excessive noise, lack of heat or air in certain parts of the home, or the backup heater (in homes that have one) turning on when the outside temperature hasn’t dropped below twenty degrees.
Many homeowners think that the steam rising from the outdoor unit in the winter is a problem, but this is actually a sign that an important function is working properly. All heat pumps have a defrost cycle that melts the frost off of the outdoor coils when outside temperatures drop. The steam coming from the outdoor unit simply means that the heat pump is in the defrost cycle. However, if you notice that the defrost cycle lasts longer than ten to fifteen minutes, or if it cycles on and off frequently, you should call us to send one of our HVAC technicians to check your heat pump. There could be an issue with airflow, which is a common problem but results in damaging the compressor if it isn’t resolved as soon as possible. Call us any time you notice anything that seems out of the ordinary with your heat pump.
Heat Pump Service
As a homeowner, cleaning your heat pump’s outdoor unit is an especially important maintenance task. Not only does a routine cleaning of all the outdoor components maintain your heat pump’s efficiency and performance levels, it also prevents safety hazards. When you schedule a yearly maintenance visit with one of our technicians, cleaning the coils and outdoor unit is part of the service; however, if you want to clean the coils yourself, have one of our technicians show you how to do this before you attempt it on your own. You could suffer from electric shock if you are not familiar with the proper cleaning procedure. You can also help by making sure that the debris is cleared from around the outdoor unit at all times. We also provide emergency repairs, so call us any time you need heat pump maintenance or repair services.
