Though it isn’t clear from its name, a heat pump can both warm up and cool down indoor temperatures. When temperatures are cooler than you need them to be, the device draws in warmth from outside (even when it’s cold) and pumps it into your home. When you’d like to cool things down, it pulls heat from the air inside of your house and pumps it outside.
There are two basic types of heat pumps that can go into any HVAC system. Air-source pumps pull heat from outside air and deposit it into outside air. Ground-source pumps pull heat from the ground outside and deposit heat from indoors into the ground. The former are common in residential homes, while the latter typically exist in larger commercial properties.
Since heat pump systems are so complex, here are just some of the many components from which malfunctions can arise.
Diminished airflow from failing compressor
Using more energy due to dirty filters or coils
A faulty capacitor
An old or malfunctioning thermostat
When a heat pump works to cool indoor air, the compressor is what generates the cool air that’s later pumped into your home. If the compressor malfunctions, it will struggle to generate this air. The compressor is what moves the refrigerant through your system, so a defective compressor will lead to a general loss of function. The evaporator coil turns the refrigerant into the gaseous form it needs to be in in order to circulate. The condenser coil then condenses it and allows it to release the heat it has absorbed.
Bad thermostats can throw your entire heat pump system out of whack or reduce its efficiency. Dirty air vents block airflow and force the heat pump to work harder to produce the same result. The capacitor is the motor that starts and drives the heat pump. Without it, the system simply doesn’t work.
Our team of trained HVAC technicians can provide fixes to all of these heat pump issues and many others. Whether you need a simple tune-up or cleaning, more extensive heat pump repairs, or an outright replacement with a new system, we’ve got you covered.
