Heating Repair in Charleston: What Can Go Wrong with Your Heat Pump?

November 24, 2015

Heat pumps are known for their incredibly energy-efficiency. Unlike furnaces and boilers, which tend to burn fuel and prove harmful to the environment, heat pumps only use a small amount of energy from the ground or air to produce heat. That means you’ll receive improved heating without having to worry about the high cost of energy bills. But, of course, just because it delivers heat at a more energy-efficient rate doesn’t mean a heat pump is immune from experiencing any malfunctions or total breakdowns.

Fortunately, Custom Climate offers heating repair in Charleston to restore your heat pump so it’s working better than ever. Our team of experts have worked on heat pumps all over Charleston for years, which means we know better than anyone else just how to make repairs that ensure your heat pump won’t experience a breakdown for a long time to come!

Common Heat Pump Problems

The heating experts at Custom Climate are here to supply you with repair that will prevent you from experiencing heat pump failure this winter. Though the range of heat pump problems is vast, here a few common problems impacting your heat pump:

  • Compressor Malfunction: The compressor inside your heat pump moves refrigerant throughout your system to facilitate the cooling process. A malfunctioning compressor could be the result of faulty electrical wiring or other defective components.
  • Burned or Frayed Wires: The wiring inside your heat pump ensures all components are connected and running in harmony. They can become damaged due to a power surge, rodent activity or poor installation.
  • Damaged or Defective Fans: A heat pump with a damaged or defective fan will not even start. With the passage of time or heavy use, fan blades can deteriorate or the capacitor that powers the fan can fail. Our team of technicians can replace the damaged fan to ensure greater efficiency and performance.
  • Condenser Problems: The condenser is vital to the air cooling process that occurs inside your heat pump. The most common causes of condenser failure are faulty wiring or dirty evaporator coils. Fortunately, our technicians can fix the poor connections or clean the coils.
  • Faulty Blowers: The blower component of your heat pump is responsible for moving air into your home after it has been cooled. The team at Custom Climate will inspect your blower and address and replacements or repairs that are needed to get it up and running again.
