Common Heat Pump Problems & Their Solutions

Heat pumps are a great HVAC option for your MetroWest home, but that doesn’t mean they won’t ever lose energy efficiency or break down. Whenever you detect problems with your heat pump, it’s important to have a licensed and insured HVAC technician inspect the unit to accurately diagnose the cause of the malfunction.

As your heat pump ages, you may notice some of the following issues:

  • Constant operation: Constant operation can be caused by malfunctioning thermostats, dirty air filters, dirty coils, a stuck reversing valve, or refrigerant leaks. It is also caused by having an incorrectly sized heat pump.
  • No airflow: If the heat pump isn’t operational, it can indicate problems with the thermostat, power supply, dirty air filters, or a bad starter capacitor.
  • Frozen unit: If the outdoor unit is frozen, it may be because of dirty air filters, dirty coils, or refrigerant leaks.
  • System short-cycling: If your unit turns off and on frequently without achieving the set temperature, the system could be incorrectly sized or overheated. Alternatively, you could be dealing with refrigerant leaks or a thermostat malfunction.
  • Odd odors: Mold growth, pest infestations, and electrical problems can cause the heat pump to emit strange smells.

No matter the heat pump issue, Blue Bear Plumbing, Heating & Air can resolve it. Call 781-706-4682 or schedule heat pump repair online today!

Heat Pump Repair Vs. Replacement

In most cases, you can expect your heat pump to provide 10 to 15 years of reliable operation. As with all HVAC systems, you can expect performance and reliability to decrease and repair costs and frequency to increase as your heat pump ages.

Repairs are preferred, especially if you have a newer unit still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. However, a new unit is the most cost-effective option if you have an older unit that requires any repair that exceeds more than 50% of the heat pump replacement cost.

We also recommend replacing your heat pump if it’s improperly sized for your home. Maybe you expanded your living space with a home addition, or you thought a larger unit wouldn’t need to run as much, but your HVAC system needs to be approximately sized to your home to meet your comfort needs. The unit will operate less efficiently, require more frequent repairs, and fail sooner than expected. Replacing it sooner rather than later can save you money in the long run.

Blue Bear Plumbing, Heating & Air can help whether your South Shore home needs heat pump repair or replacement. Call 781-706-4682 now or request service online.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Blue Bear was awesome to work with - we had to have an emergency water heater replacement and they were able to come within 24hrs. We received multiple options with pricing and were able to pick a solution that worked best for our needs. Nice install and great clean up afterwards. Had them back out again to install an outdoor shower Again, on time, great communication, completed the installation exactly the way we wanted it and at the exact price quoted. Fantastic job! Oh and we love that they are owned locally!! Congrats to you Chris and team! Thanks for being a great neighbor. Jeremy D.
So the day before Thanksgiving our water heater sprays water all over the basement floor. We think with the holiday and the weekend coming, there goes water usage for at least 5 days. But no! We call blue bear that morning, and the very nice lady sets up a technician to come out to inspect that day! Peter gets to our house, diagnoses the problem, gives our family a few different options explaining everything and gets it all done SAME day! Couldn’t be happier with the friendliness and professionalism of this company. When our furnace decides to let go on us (probably before the next holiday) they will be #1 on the list to call...5 stars and thank you! George K.
Blue Bear was incredible - easy to schedule, clear communication, professional work quality, expert support afterward. We had a complex project (two heat pumps that needed to work with our prior system) and the Blue Bear team absolutely hit a home run! Great work! John K.
Blue Bear exceeded my expectations. Ben was on time, courteous, extremely knowledgeable, and quickly fixed all the issues I had with my boiler. He even noticed a couple other issues I was unaware of, gave me a quote on the spot, and repaired them the same day. This definitely saved me trouble that would have “surprised” me down the road so his attention to detail gave me peace of mind that my system is working properly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Ben and Blue Bear to anyone needing HVAC services. Brian R.
I’ve used Blue Bear plumbing quite a lot. I own a hair salon and often, plumbing issues occur, which is problematic for us to run effectively. Their plumbers have always been super nice, polite and very knowledgeable. Today, Scott came to fix a pipe that burst and he was awesome- but like I said, I’ve used them a bunch and everyone has been outstanding. Carolyn C.
