Common Types of Heat Pump Repair
At D ‘n A Heating & Air, we have over 20 years of experience repairing heat pumps. In that time, we’ve performed every heat pump repair under the Alabama sun. Here are the most common issues we fix:
- Faulty reversing valve – This valve is what allows your unit to switch from heating to cooling. If it fails, you will be unable to heat or cool your home, depending on which position it is stuck in.
- Leaking refrigerant – Heat pumps use refrigerant in both the winter and the summer to transfer heat. A refrigerant leak will impact their performance in any season.
- Electrical failure – Often, an electrical component will fail and need to be replaced so that your heat pump can keep running its compressor and fan motors.
- Outdoor unit iced over – In the winter, your heat pump runs defrost cycles to keep ice from building up. If the defrost cycle fails for some reason, your unit can ice over. This puts a lot of strain on the system and can result in a breakdown.

Benefits of Professional Heat Pump Repair
If your heat pump breaks down, stops working as well as before, or makes strange noises, it’s time to call in a professional. A trained technician can quickly and accurately diagnose any issues. They’ll extend your unit’s life span by performing maintenance with the repair and will be able to identify any other problems that might be occurring. They’ll also be able to notify you if it might be more cost-effective to replace your heat pump instead of investing money in repairs.
Frequently Asked Questions About Heat Pumps
Why is my heat pump not turning on?
The simplest reason that your heat pump may not turn on is if your thermostat is faulty or programmed incorrectly. It could also be because of a power failure due to a tripped breaker or total loss of power to your home. If the problem is with the heat pump itself, the issue might be that the start capacitor is not transmitting an electric charge to start the motors, or that the reversal valve is broken and is not allowing the unit to switch into the needed mode.
What are the signs that my heat pump needs to be repaired?
If your heat pump is not heating or cooling like it used to or if it’s not coming on at all, it most likely needs to be repaired. Even if it’s running well, you might hear unusual sounds such as rattling, squealing, or metal hitting metal that let you know something is amiss. If you realize that your electricity bill is unusually high, you should call a professional to investigate whether your heat pump is responsible.
Why does my heat pump smell bad?
Heat pump owners will sometimes notice a musty, foul smell that is referred to in the industry as “dirty sock syndrome.” This can happen during the milder seasons, when the unit doesn’t need to run as much. Mold and bacteria build up on the evaporator coil, then blow into your home when the unit starts. In most cases, this can be remedied by calling a professional to clean your evaporator coil.
Do I need heat pump maintenance?
It’s important to remember that because your heat pump both heats and cools your home, it works year-round without a break. This makes regular maintenance twice as important for heat pumps as it is for furnaces and AC units! Maintenance will keep your heat pump running approximately 25% more efficiently than a heat pump that is not maintained.
