Of course any mechanical system is susceptible to wear and tear or damage. At some point you will need to schedule repair service for your heat pump. Here are some examples of the more common heat pump problems we face here in Atlanta.
- Poor Temperature Maintenance – There are a lot of reasons why your heat pump may have trouble maintaining target temperatures, and they vary in degrees of seriousness. Sometimes it is as simple as incorrect settings at the thermostat. Anytime you are dealing with a system that both heats and cools it is possible to switch to the wrong function. This is definitely a best possible case scenario. There also may be a problem with your ductwork or the blower responsible for air dispersal.
- Ice Building Up on Evaporator Coils – As with most heat pump problems, the development of ice on your evaporator coils can have many different causes. The most popular is insufficient refrigerant levels. This may indicate a leak, as refrigerant is recycled over and over in your heat pump system, not consumed, meaning levels should not really change. It is possible that some refrigerant was lost during service, but frequently frozen coils should certainly be inspected by a professional.
- Cold or Hot Spots Developing – It is impossible to be really comfortable if different areas of your home are all different temperatures. Even heating is integral not only to comfort but to heating and cooling efficiency as well. This is most likely a ductwork problem, though a simple cause may be behind the uneven heating. Make sure that your furniture is not blocking air vents or registers. Your heat pump system will heat and cool your home a lot more effectively without having to force air through a sofa.
