Common Heat Pump Problems You Should Know

Are you not getting the desired output from your heat pump system? Well, the heat pump system might be facing some problems. The heat pump works as a dual system for heating and cooling. This makes it a popular choice for improved indoor air quality.

However, any visible and underlying issues can affect its performance. The first thing to do is to identify the problems and address them. In this article, we are going to guide you through some of the common heat pump problems. So, you can identify what issues your heat pump is facing.

Identifying the problem is the first step to solving it. That being said, below are some of the frequent issues a heat pump system might encounter.

  • Inadequate Heating/Cooling: Improper temperature control due to thermostat issues, compressor problems, or refrigerant imbalances.
  • Noisy Operation: Unusual sounds coming from the heat pump are one of the most common issues.
  • Blowing Cold Air in Heating Mode: Even though the system is in a heating mood, blowing cold air can be a problem.
  • Leaking Water: Another common issue is water leakage from the heat pump. This can be due to clogging or refrigerant leaks.
  • Uneven Heating/Cooling: The temperature might be inconsistent and this can be a sign of duct issues or blocked vents.

Reviews from Our Clients


“Great company. Very honest, reliable and fair pricing. They came out to do a service on my A/C unit. Robert who was amazing explained everything to me and showed me where there was a coil leak. They’re coming back out to do the repair for me. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone I know. Hard to find good honest companies these days but speaking from experience Ewing & Ewing is one you can trust. 10/10"


"I'm so happy I found Ewing & Ewing today! My prior contractor was closed Sundays, and another one that was recommended was also closed Sundays, so my third attempt was Ewing & Ewing who came today (Sunday) a couple of hours after I called. A very nice gentleman named Chris fixed the problem in no time. They have an excellent annual service contract at a very reasonable price, so I couldn't pass it up. I look forward to working with them again. They have gained my trust and confidence today."
