Heat Pump Service and Replacement in Reading

250 Heat Pump Rep_Banner

It is typical for an outdoor heat pump to have a build up of frost or ice on the outside coil during the harsh and extreme winter climate in Pennsylvania.  The buildup, if not addressed correctly can completely cover the outdoor unit. Normally a heat pump is designed to automatically engage in defrost mode every 30-90 minutes – depending on how your unit is programmed.   If you have a heavy build up of ice than you should call for immediate service to prevent costly damage to your unit.  There is a good chance the unit is not defrosting properly.  Other typical heat pump service repair calls we see are:

  • Frozen Lines
  • Burned Heat Strips
  • Defective Capacitor
  • Faulty Fans
  • Broken Blower
  • Burned Wires
  • Thermostat no calibrated
  • Low Refrigerant charge
  • Refrigerant flow-related problem
  • Poor efficiency
  • Bad reversing valve
  • Bad compressor valve
  • Compressor is not running
