You may wonder what makes a heat pump different from a regular air conditioner. It can be helpful to think of your heat pump as a two-in-one system. Unlike an air conditioner, your heat pump can heat and cool your house depending on the setting on your thermostat.
Because of its dual functionality and reversing expansion valve, your heat pump needs a licensed contractor to properly maintain and repair it. Our dedicated team can help you with any heat pump trouble you may have.
The Fresh Air Flow team has combined decades of experience working on all sorts of heat pumps, from geothermal models to electric and water-to-water. Not even sure what type of heat pump you have? Don’t worry; we can find out for you and help you understand your home’s heating and cooling system better.
While there are many basic heat pump maintenance jobs you can learn yourself, repairs are always best left to professionals.
Common heat pump problems include:
When a heat pump doesn’t turn on, there could be an issue with your thermostat. A damaged circuit breaker or writing issue could also be behind the problem. Our technicians can closely inspect your heat pump and identify what went wrong. Potential solutions could involve replacing the fuse, recalibrating the thermostat, or making electrical repairs.
Your heater blows cold air, your cool air feels warm. This common heat pump repair often requires inspecting the coils, expansion valve, and refrigerant. Dirty or blocked coils will not be able to effectively heat or cool air that passes over them; low refrigerant levels will make your system less efficient or, in some cases, inoperable.
Rest assured that our team will figure out exactly what’s causing your heat pump to not work. Our repair solutions save you time, money, and stress.
If your heat pump turns on or off consecutively throughout the day, then it’s likely short cycling due to an issue with the filter, coils, or thermostat. There could also be trouble with the outside unit, which looks like the typical box unit of an air conditioner system.
Short cycling is problematic for a few reasons. First, it forces your system to work more than it should. This can lead to unnecessary strain on your heat pump. Next, it can raise your energy bills unnecessarily while making your home less energy efficient. Finally, a short cycling heat pump makes your home less comfortable, no matter whether you’re trying to heat or cool it.

A good heat pump can last up to 15 years with regular maintenance. The biggest reason homeowners need to replace their heat pumps early is the lack of repair. Letting problems go for too long can cause irreparable damage to your system, not to mention make your home uncomfortable to live in.
Heat pumps look and function the same as air conditioners for cooling, but in cool months when heat is called for, they reverse operation to provide warmth for your home. If you live in a colder environment, electric heat pumps are great in combination with your oil or gas furnace as a Hybrid Heat solution, which can improve energy efficiency and result in significant savings on your overall heating costs.
