The Most Common Heat Pump Problems
If you’re frustrated by a failing heat pump, you’re not alone: While most heat pumps are reliable, aging systems are vulnerable to wear and tear. Inadequate maintenance also contributes to heat pump failure.
Here are some of the most common heat pump repairs we perform in Frederick:
- Heat pump is freezing up
- Heat pump is blowing cold air during heating season
- Heat pump is blowing warm air during cooling season
- Heat pump keeps tripping the circuit breaker
- Heat pump is short-cycling (turning on and off repeatedly)
- Heat pump won’t turn on
- Heat pump is making loud noises
- Heat pump is emitting unpleasant smells
- Heat pump won’t stop running
If you’re experiencing these or other heat pump problems and you live within 20-25 miles of Frederick, Maryland, call us to schedule a heat pump inspection and get a repair estimate.
Should You Replace or Repair an Aging or Broken Heat Pump?
Replacing a heat pump is an expense most Frederick homeowners wish to avoid, and if we can help you avoid a replacement, we will. Making simple heat pump repairs early – before the problem worsens – is the best thing you can do to prevent a catastrophic heat pump failure.
Still, it’s sometimes better to replace a heat pump than to keep investing in repairs. Here are some signs you may need to install a new heat pump:
- Your heat pump needs repairs every year or more than once a year.
- Your heat pump is running constantly.
- The air temperature in your home never feels comfortable.
- Your utility bills are going up and up.
- Your home always feels too humid or too dry.
- Your pump is making strange noises or emitting strange smells.
