4 Common Heat Pump Repairs

If your heat pump just quit and it’s hot outside (or cold), you need help! In most cases, you need a repair professional like Five Star Home Services. However, below, we can help you narrow down the cause and, in some cases, fix it yourself.


Heat pumps use refrigerants to transfer heat from one place to another. Because this refrigerant is necessary for the operation of your heat pump in winter and the summer, if there’s ever a leak, you will know it because there will be issues to follow. If there’s a leak in the refrigerant line, it means there isn’t enough refrigerant to absorb and transfer heat properly. This can cause damage to the compressor that impacts your indoor comfort. Our HVAC professionals can seal up any leaks in the refrigerant line and recharge the refrigerant levels so your heat pump system works effectively again.


Reversing valves are what allow a heat pump to reverse the flow of refrigerant. They give you the ability to switch from “heating mode” in the winter to “cooling mode” during the summer. If this reversing valve fails and gets stuck in one position, it will prevent you from switching between heating mode and cooling mode. If this happens, make sure to call an expert like Five Star Home Services, who can replace the faulty valve for you and get your unit back to normal.


The outdoor coil is what releases heat during the winter and summer. During the winter, it’s common for a layer of frost to form on the outdoor unit. Nevertheless, heat pumps should be running defrost cycles to remove glaze. Otherwise, if too much frost builds up and forms ice, it can block the unit’s airflow entirely. This can cause all sorts of other problems. If this happens, you must immediately contact a professional like Five Star Home Services. This issue puts immense strain on your system. Not catching and correcting quickly can lead to a complete system breakdown.


Heat pumps use electricity to power compressors and fan motors. Because of this, electrical failure is a quite common cause of heat pump breakdowns. Sometimes, a heat pump’s electrical components will need to be replaced if this happens. If so, you are going to need to hire a professional like Five Star Home Services who knows what they are doing.
