We provide the expertise and guidance for heating and cooling solutions, you make the decision. Always.
Understand Heat Pump Issues
Heat Pump Blows Cold Air
It’s common for extremely cold weather to test heat pumps. A heat pump is not a combustion-based system. Instead of burning fuel to create heat, a heat pump moves heat from one area to another.
In the winter, heat pumps bring warmer air in from outside. In the summer, it extracts heat from indoor air and pumps it outdoors. Even during extreme cold, they should still work. Most have a backup system of “electric strips.” If your heat pump blows cold air, please give us a call!
Heat Pump Won’t Turn On
Your heat pump should still turn on during the colder weather days. If yours stays off, then your home’s auxiliary heat is doing all of the work.
Unfortunately, this is inefficient and results in higher heating bills. Instead of living with the higher costs, call an Energy Savers technician to diagnose the issue.
Frozen Heat Pump
Heat pumps sometimes freeze in cold weather, especially during freezing rain and temperature swings. The defrost function should turn on periodically to melt the ice.
When the defrost mode stops working, it could indicate low refrigerant levels, a dirty outdoor coil or a need to change the defrost control settings.
When the heating or cooling malfunctions, it could be other components as well. The best way to diagnose the culprit is to call an Energy Savers HVAC technician.
