Layton, UT Heat Pump Repair

Heat pumps are becoming increasingly famous as an environmentally friendly way to heat fabulous homes. They are more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems, and they release no pollutants into the atmosphere. In addition, they can save homeowners money on their energy bills.

However, like any other heating or cooling system, heat pump repairs are necessary at times.

The two most common problems with heat pumps are freezing up in cold weather and overheating in hot weather. The pump will stop working in freezing weather if the liquid inside the pump freezes if the pump is not correctly insulated. If the pump freezes, the technician will need to thaw it out and check the fluid levels.

In scorching weather, the pump can overheat and shut down, caused by a lack of airflow around the pump. If this happens, the technician will need to check to make sure that there is enough airflow. If the pump overheats, the technician must check the fan and cooling system to ensure it is working correctly. In some cases, the pump may need to be replaced.

These problems can be prevented by using an appropriately sized pump for the climate and a quality thermostat to regulate the temperature. Regular maintenance will help maintain your system driving smoothly as well.

During a heat pump repair appointment, a technician is going to perform a full inspection of the system, including:

  • Checking the refrigerant levels
  • Checking the wiring
  • Cleaning the coils
  • Replacing the filters
  • Repairing or replacing the thermostat
