Heat pump repair services provide solutions for homeowners when their heating system stops working as it should. While you can perform some maintenance tasks yourself, heat pumps are complex systems that require professional repairs for the best results.
A heat pump works by drawing air from the outside, transferring heat to and from the house, then blowing the warm air through your home’s ductwork or a ductless system. Its indoor unit, called an air handler or wall, floor or ceiling-mounted ductless heat pump, has a fan that moves air throughout the home or building and contains the evaporator coil. It also has a compressor that pulls low-pressure vapor from the evaporator and compresses it to create high-temperature, high-pressure gas.
The compressor also houses the refrigerant, which helps cool the vapor to a temperature where it can be condensed into cold air for distribution. If you notice your heat pump running but not delivering hot air, it may have a refrigerant leak. A professional heat pump service can diagnose the problem and fix it quickly.
Other common heat pump problems include blowing cold air, low refrigerant levels, and a frozen outdoor unit. If you notice any of these issues in your Goshen, NY home, call Jones Services to have a heating expert assess the problem and provide a price quote. A little preventive maintenance can help keep your heat pump running efficiently for years to come. For example, regularly changing or cleaning your air filter and keeping the area around your outdoor unit free of debris are great ways to extend its life.
