Heat Pump Repair FAQ
When a heat pump is not heating or a homeowner is having cooling problems with their heat pump, they often have specific questions that they need answers to quickly. If you are troubleshooting a heat pump having problems, here are some common questions and answers.
Why is my heat pump not turning on?
If your heat pump is not turning on, the first thing to do is check the thermostat. it’s possible it got switched to from heating to cooling or the temperature is improperly set, and this will make the unit not turn on. If your heat pump is not turning on and the thermostat is set properly, check the circuit breaker. This usually happens when there is no power running to the heat pump, so try resetting the circuit breaker to fix the problem. If triggering the reset button or switch does not fix the problem, or the unit runs and then trips the breaker again, give Axberg a call. This could indicate an electrical issue that needs a professional to look at it.
Why does my heat pump have problems in cold weather?
Heat pumps are an excellent an efficient way to heat and cool a home when temperatures are above freezing. When temperatures dip below freezing, a heat pump is going to struggle to keep a home warm enough because of the nature of the heating and cooling methods. that’s why heat pumps in Rockford often have a secondary gas or electric heat source. If you are having problems in cold weather with your heat pump not heating, it may because that secondary heat source is not working as it should. Try troubleshooting your secondary heating component to rectify the problem.
Why is there ice on my heat pump?
Ice or frost on the outdoor coils of your heat pump is actually normal during the heating season. When the buildup gets too heavy, the pump will switch into cooling mode to reverse the refrigerant and melt the ice. This is the defrost cycle. Once it is complete, the unit will start heating again. However, if the defrost cycle cannot address the problem properly, it may be because of malfunctioning controls, low refrigerant levels, malfunctioning fan motors, or another issue. Give Axberg a call to diagnose and repair the problem.
