Common Heat Pump Problems

Heat pumps are known to be efficient and environmentally friendly. For this reason, many home and business owners choose to invest in this sort of system. While heat pumps can function well in commercial and residential settings, they also share several common problems. Consequently, this article  will share three common heat pump problems.

Ice Build-Up

Heat pumps are known for collecting ice near their evaporator coils. The most common reason for this is insufficient refrigerant levels, which may be a symptom of a leak or simply poor maintenance. If your heat pump’s coils are consistently frozen we encourage you to schedule a maintenance check with the professionals at Denver’s Best Heating and AC Repair.

Poor Temperature Maintenance

Poor temperature maintenance is an uncomfortable, annoying HVAC problem. There are many reasons why your heat pump may struggle to maintain set temperatures and these reasons vary in their severity. Poor temperature maintenance may be as simple an incorrect thermostat setting or it may indicated their is a problem with your ductwork. Before assuming the worse, we encourage you to inspect your thermostat — rule out easy solutions before calling Denver’s Best Heating and AC Repair.

Shifting some furniture may be all you need to repair this uncomfortable problem.
