Troubleshooting Your Heat Pump Issues

Before calling on Friendly Plumber, Heating and Air for heat pump repair services, there are a few things you can troubleshoot by yourself to make sure the solution isn't just a simple thermostat adjustment or filter replacement.

  1. Many heat pump problems occur because of a faulty thermostat. Check to see if your thermostat is working, and then be sure to set the fan switch to AUTO rather than ON.
  2. Always check that the heat pump's air filters are clean to allow for proper airflow. If it is dirty and clogged, give us a call at Friendly’s, and we will gladly change it while inspecting your system for other issues.
  3. If the heat pump system fails to warm your Salt Lake City house, you may need one of our technicians to check the blower, reversing valve, and other parts of the system. If it starts to turn off and on too frequently, that could be an indication it is overheating.
  4. Are you hearing rattling or squealing noises coming from your heat pump? Those sounds could indicate loose parts or issues with the motor. Strange noises from any part of your HVAC system should always prompt you to call our repair team.
  5. If the power to the heat pump goes out, and everything seems to be in place, the circuit breaker may have tripped, and you will need to reset it.

Keep in mind that when it is super cold outdoors, a heat pump can go into defrost mode to prevent icing up. When this happens, it will temporarily stop transferring hot air into your home. Here’s where a furnace or an auxiliary source—such as a portable space heater—can help out!

Heat Pump Maintenance Can Prevent Issues

Many heat pump issues occur due to a lack of maintenance. Because heat pumps work year-round to provide both heating and cooling, they require semi-annual maintenance. During a tune-up, your heat pump technician will perform a thorough inspection of your system to find any potential issues before they become major problems. They will also clean and lubricate components, check refrigerant levels, and test electrical connections to ensure optimal performance.

All these services help to prevent issues from ever occurring in the first place, keeping you from running into more serious issues that can threaten your home's comfort and safety. Schedule your semi-annual maintenance to keep your equipment running well all year long.
