We Fix Heat Pumps Fast, Affordably and Reliably
Have you rearranged your bedroom closets and dressers so your cold weather clothing is easily accessible? It’s that time of year again! Our temperatures are continuing to drop and some of you may have turned on your heating systems to take off the chill.
Heat pumps are one of the smartest, affordable and most efficient ways to heat your Arlington, TX, area home. But what happens when you turn on your heat pump and it fails to deliver the warmth you’re expecting? At Texas Air Authorities, we pride ourselves in being the preferred heat pump repair service in Grand Prairie, TX, and throughout the area.
Here are four common problems that you might experience with your heat pump:
- Refrigerant leaks. If your heat pump isn’t keeping your home toasty warm, the problem could be a refrigerant leak. Heat pumps use refrigerant to move heat from one location to another. In the winter, your heat pump pulls heat from the outside air to warm your indoor living space. A leak in the refrigerant line can result in insufficient levels of refrigerant to properly absorb and transfer heat. This problem also can damage your compressor. Our skilled technicians are experts at tracking down these leaks, sealing them up and recharging the refrigerant to get your heat pump working reliably again.
- Icing problems. In the winter, your heat pump releases heat through your outdoor unit’s coil. When the temperatures dip low enough, you might notice a layer of frost on the outdoor unit. If too much ice builds up, it can block the outdoor unit and rob your system of its smooth operation. A blocked system can lead to a number of other serious problems, including total system failure, so don’t put off calling us if you notice this problem.
- Faulty reversing valve. Your heat pump’s reversing valve allows you to switch your unit between cooling mode and heating mode. This valve can get stuck in one position, preventing you from switching from one mode to the other.
- Electrical problems. Your heat pump’s compressor and fan motors run on electricity. An electrical failure is another common issue that results in the need for repair.
