When to Schedule Heat Pump Repair
- Poor heating or cooling – if your heat pump is producing less heat than usual, or no heat at all, it may have a low refrigerant charge or low air or water flow rates.
- Heat pump doesn’t operate in heating mode – if your heat pump doesn’t operate when you switch to heating mode, you may have a high or low pressure lock-out, a stuck reversing valve or a compressor failure.
- Your heating costs are higher than usual – if your heat pump is losing efficiency, you may have improper control settings or you could be using your thermostat improperly.
- You have low temperature air coming from your vents – occasional low temperatures are normal with heat pumps – they don’t necessarily indicate a problem. However, if you feel like the indoor air temperatures are TOO low you may want to call for heat pump repair.
- Frozen compressor – heat pump compressors go through natural freeze—defrost cycles constantly throughout the winter – this is why they have defrost timers. However, if your heat pump freezes up and stays frozen, it may be due to inadequate elevation of the heat pump, especially in areas where snowfall can block drainage of condensate and cause it to freeze in the unit. Frozen heat pumps can also be caused by dirty air filters in the spring.

Heat Pump Repair FAQs
Can I repair my own heat pump?
While you can do most of the cleaning and maintenance of your heat pump yourself, it’s generally not a good idea to try and repair anything major without proper training. Heat pumps are on a 240V circuit, meaning that severe electrocution is possible if you don’t have a strong working knowledge of electricity. In addition, most modern heat pumps contain complex circuit boards and sensors and have to comply with tight regulations. In general, it’s best to leave the major repairs to the experts!
How often should I change my heat pump’s air filter?
Like your air conditioner and furnace, you should change the filter on your heat pump once a month during peak use, and once every three months outside of that.
