Heat Pump Repair & Replacement
Our Most Common Heat Pump Repairs
Heat pumps are fascinating beasts. Depending on your home’s needs and the season, heat pumps will work to either cool or heat your home. Evaporator and condenser coils convert refrigerant to and from a gas, releasing or capturing heat energy to either cool or heat a space. They’re great for ensuring home comfort, but they have their moments. Some of the most common repairs are as follows:
A damaged reversing valve
This valve is responsible for reversing the flow of refrigerant. Without this function, the pump can only heat or cool.
A low level of refrigerant
Without refrigerant, a heat pump is useless. Low levels could also be the result of leaks.
A damaged compressor contractor
This delivers power to the heat pump. Damage to this component may result in a constantly running heat pump or one that doesn’t run at all.
A faulty starter capacitor
If your heat pump is making a clicking sound, this component is likely in need of replacement. Without this piece, your heat pump’s motor won’t receive power.
