Troubleshooting

  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 the heat pump filter is 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 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 warm air into your home. Here’s where a furnace or an auxiliary source - such as a portable space heater - can help out!
