What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. Heat pumps have actually been around for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners are both common examples of this technology.
Refrigerators and air conditioners are actually both considered heat pumps, however, they only operate in cooling mode. A refrigerator is essentially an insulated box with a heat pump system connected to it. Similarly, an air conditioner transfers heat from inside a house to the outdoors. Heat is absorbed from this location and transferred outside.
With a true full-service ductless heat pump, the cycle is fully reversible, and ductless heat pumps can provide year-round climate control for your home - comfortable heating in the winter months and refreshing cooling and dehumidifying over the hot summer months.
Common Heat Pump Issues
Not only do we do installation, but we consider ourselves proficient when it comes to both maintenance and repair. Proper maintenance of your unit is required to continue optimal operation and if neglected, can easily lead to a malfunctioning unit, or in the worst case, a unit that needs to be completely replaced.
Here are some issues you may encounter with your pre-existing older heat pump units:
- Heat pump does not work - There could be several factors at play here, but some common reasons could be a malfunctioning thermostat, a miscalibrated thermostat, or even an electrical problem between your unit and the thermostat. Potentially, there could be an issue with your ductless heat pump's starter or reversing valve. It's always best to let experts come in to determine the true cause of the problem so you don't have to take any safety risks examining your unit or the system as a whole.
- Heat pump works, but no heat comes out - Your heat pump needs proper airflow to work properly. The first thing to check is that your outside unit is not blocked by anything, such as snow, leaves, or even debris. If your outside unit is clear, then it might be an issue with the air filter needing cleaning. The last likely cause of such an issue is your refrigerant being low, which is a potentially dangerous situation and requires professional intervention to make sure your ductless heat pump is not leaking gasses into your home.
- Heat pump will keeps cycling - If you find your heat pump to constantly be working but not properly achieving the temperature levels you'd like, it could simply be a result of the weather being abnormally hot or cold. However, if you find this to be the case over a long period of time, it could be a thermostat or electrical problem, or in a worst case, a broken compressor.
