  • 4 Common Heat Pump Problems

    We hope you and your family are staying cool in your relaxing homes this summer. We at Five Star Heating & Cooling highlight 4 common air conditioner repairs we make throughout the summer season: 

    01.

    Broken Reversing Valve

    All heat pumps have what is called a “reversing valve.” This valve allows the system to reverse the flow of its refrigerant, which allows users to switch from “cooling mode” during the summertime to “heating mode” during the wintertime as needed. Occasionally, this “reversing valve” can malfunction, become defective, and remain stuck in a single position. If you aren’t able to switch your heat pump’s modes to reverse its flow, make sure to give us a call right away. We can replace these faulty valves quickly, safely, and effectively.

    03.

    Electricial Problems

    Because heat pumps use electricity to operate their fan motors and compressors, electrical malfunction are common causes of problems with heat pumps. If you suspect your heat pump is having an electrical problem, call us! Electrical parts should always be replaced by a professional for obvious safety reasons.

    02.

    Frost and Ice Formation

    Throughout the wintertime, heat pumps release heat using an outdoor coil. During the summertime when it’s hot out, however, this same coil absorbs the heat. As such, during the winter it’s not uncommon for a layer of frost to form on a heat pump’s outdoor unit. If you have a heat pump and frost starts forming on it, remove it as often as possible. Because heat pumps are supposed to be defrosting themselves on their own, we suggest giving us a call right away if this starts happening.

    04.

    Refrigerant Leak

    Heat pumps function a lot like an AC. Not only do they look a lot alike, but they both also use refrigerants to transfer heat from one place to another. With these refrigerants being used so much, if your heat pump develops a refrigerant leak, it will lead to additional problems. Low refrigerant levels prevent heat pumps from absorbing and transferring heat, which can cause damage to the compressor.

    Should You Repair or Replace Your Heat Pump?

    All homeowners find themselves asking this question eventually. However, the answer will vary for each home and set of circumstances. The following suggestions are based on our years of experience. If the system is less than 10 years old, it is typically worth repairing, especially if the cost of the repair is reasonable. However, if you have invested in constant repairs over the years – especially on a machine that is 10-15 years old or older, it’s likely ineffective. Don’t throw away hard-earned cash on a heat pump that will likely give out soon. It makes more sense to invest in a new, energy-efficient system that gives you the peace of mind you need for the next several years of heat.

    YOU SHOULD REPAIR YOUR Heat Pump IF:

    • The repair is relatively cheap and simple.
    • This is your first need for repair
    • The unit is under 10-15 years of age

    YOU SHOULD REPLACE YOUR Heat Pump IF:

    • The cost of repair is too high
    • A long history of repairs
    • Unit is over 15 years of age
