Common Heat Pump Issues Homeowners Might Face

The seasons are changing which means the weather outside and the temperatures inside our homes are also changing. If you rely on a heat pump to heat your home in the fall and winter, you might have run into issues in the past or could potentially face some issues with it this season.

In this blog, we’re sharing a few common problems you might face with your heat pump as a homeowner and how Hedrick's Service Now can help.

The Outdoor Unit is Blocked

It’s important to regularly clean your outdoor unit as it can easily become blocked by leaves and other debris. Due to the fact that your heat pump pulls air from the outside to heat your home, it won’t be able to properly do its job if the unit is blocked. Take some time to clear away any debris from the outdoor unit that could be preventing your unit from dispersing the heat throughout your home.

Clogged Air Filter

The purpose of an air filter is to catch debris and other contaminants that could be polluting your air, but over time, it’s inevitable that your air filter will become too clogged by the debris and the airflow will be blocked. Check your air filters every 30 days and replace them with a new one at least every 60 to 90 days. This will ensure proper airflow into your home.

Low Refrigerant Level

When refrigerant levels are low, your heat pump will not be able to bring enough heat from the outdoors into your home. Due to the chemicals involved in refrigerant, it’s recommended to always have a professional come take a look at your refrigerant and refill it if needed. If this is the issue for you, give us a call at (214) 509-6029.
