One of the most common problems with heat pumps is that they can freeze. This can cause all sorts of issues, from decreased efficiency to a complete system failure. In this blog post, we will discuss the causes of heat pump freezing and provide some solutions to help you prevent it from happening!
Reasons a heat pump is frozen
There are a few reasons why your heat pump might be frozen. One possibility is that the outdoor unit is not receiving enough air flow. As a result, this can happen if the unit is blocked by snow, leaves, or other debris. Another reason for freezing could be a problem with the refrigerant level in the system. If the refrigerant is too low, it can cause the evaporator coil to freeze.
Scheduling preventative maintenance
One of the best ways to prevent your heat pump from freezing is to schedule regular preventative maintenance appointments. During these appointments, our team of trained professionals will clean the outdoor unit and check the refrigerant level. We will also inspect the system for any other potential issues that could cause problems down the road.
