Guide to Pump Repair for HVAC
August 30, 2022 at 7:00 AM

Whether you invest in a new or replacement HVAC system, it’s not all said and done. You’ll want to ensure that you have a professional examine the system periodically and make sure it’s still functioning well after installing or replacing it. Luckily, the team at Caldwell Mechanical Services has years of experience replacing and repairing HVAC parts in Oklahoma and Texas.

We’ll explain everything you need to know about HVAC and pump repair services below.

What are heat pumps?

It may be surprising to learn that heat pumps are involved with more than just the heating capabilities of an HVAC system. A heat pump is a part of the HVAC that is responsible for heating and cooling a building by transferring heat energy from one area to another. It moves heat from a cooler space to a warmer space and vice versa by using compression and expansion of refrigerants.

What are the most common heat pump repair problems?

Just like anything else in your home, your heat pump is susceptible to problems. The most common issues include:

  • Thermostat malfunctions
  • Inefficient compressor operation
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Dirty filters
  • Faulty electrical wiring

If you’re noticing any of these problems with your HVAC, call a technician from Caldwell Mechanical Services to visit your home or business. They can assess the situation, provide a solution, and discuss it with you before starting any pump repair work.

What happens if you don’t repair the problem?

As is the case with most things, a small problem with your heat pump can turn into a large and expensive issue if ignored. For example, having a dirty filter can lead to decreased airflow and compressor failure. If your heat pump isn’t functioning correctly, it may work harder to compensate for any problems in trying to heat or cool your home, leading to an increase in your energy bill. Additionally, if you have a refrigerant leak in your heat pump, it could not only be bad for the environment but lead to potential health problems for you and your family.

What does a heat pump repair company do?

Technicians who perform heat pump repairs likely work for a professional HVAC business. Reputable HVAC companies will not only deal with your heat pump. They’ll also be able to diagnose and fix virtually any issues with your heating and air conditioning. Professional HVAC technicians will often come to your home or place of business to assess the issue and determine what is causing the problem. Heating pump problems can be as simple as having a loose wire or an air leak. But other major issues will require more extensive repairs.

HVAC technicians can also help with:

  • Boiler repair or installation
  • Replacing a failed HVAC system
  • Cleaning a dirty or clogged system
  • Designing an energy-efficient plan for your home or business
