If you’re using a heat pump to keep your home cool this summer, you need to be watchful for any problems that may crop up. The more you rely on your heat pump this summer, the more strain it will be put under and the more likely it will be to have issues. Let’s take a look at some of the systems that indicate a heat pump problem.
If your heat pump isn’t generating as much output as it should be, there could be a number of different things wrong with it. It’s possible that there’s a refrigerant leak in your system, which will drain it of the fluid it needs to operate. It’s also possible that your evaporator coil is icing over, causing it to lose its ability to siphon as much heat from the air. Regardless, loss of output is a major warning sign that something is wrong with your heat pump. Call for repairs as soon as you notice this problem.
Short cycling is when your heat pump turns itself on and off every few minutes. It may seem like a minor thing, it it’s actually a major threat to the health of the system. While the heat pump is short cycling, it is placed under far more strain than it was designed to handle. If the problem isn’t fixed, various parts of the heat pump will continue to break down until the entire system fails. Turn off your heat pump immediately and call for repairs if you notice your heat pump short cycling.
