Common Home Heat Pump Problems and How to Fix Them

Heat Pump Installation Boost SafetyAre you dealing with problems with your heat pump? You're not alone! Here are the most common heat pump problems, and how to fix them:

  1. Your heat pump simply isn't turning on. Uh oh! If your heat pump just isn't turning on, it's likely that there is a problem with your thermostat or your unit's electrical power. So, in this case, you will need to check your main electrical panel for signs of a problem. Maybe the circuit breaker just needs to be reset, or maybe some of the wiring has become frayed. Either way, if your pump still doesn't turn on after resetting your electric panel, it may be time to call an HVAC professional for consultation.
  2. Your heat pump is making weird noises. If your pump is making odd noises, such as rattling, this likely means that there is some loose hardware rolling around in your unit. Don't panic! This is usually a quick fix.
  3. Your heat pump is not producing heat. If your heat pump is not producing heat (or a sufficient amount of heat), this may mean that your filters have become clogged with too much dirt and debris. In this case, it's best to take time to thoroughly clean your filters. This should do the trick! If not, check to make sure that you have enough refrigerant, as well. This is often a catalyst for insufficient heat flow.
