Heat pumps make up a large percentage of home comfort systems in use all across the Lehigh Valley. They’re strong, dependable, and one of the most efficient options on the market today. But, being a fairly unique system, they encounter some unique problems, too. Having trouble with a pump that is pushing cold air in heat mode? If so, the experts at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling, and Electric can help!
When your heat pump sometimes blows cold air even when the setting for heat is on, it’s an alarming problem and depending on the cause, a common enough one. There are two possible routes here, one of which many homeowners who are new to heat pump systems encounter.
This can be a little bit confusing, so let’s clarify it carefully. Heat pump systems operate pretty differently than standard furnace systems. In a furnace, the heat being produced and blowing into your home starts out at upwards of 110 or more degrees, often much higher than that. A heat pump, however, generates a lower but more even 90ish or so.
This can make the air coming from your vents feel much cooler than you’d expect, especially since your body temperature is actually higher than that. Think of a heat pump as more of a steady stream of warm air, rather than a furnace’s power blast injection of heat.
Don’t worry! If this is the case, there’s no problem here. A heat pump system is more than capable of keeping up with our cold seasons, and in the event that the outside unit actually did fall behind, there’s a backup system in place that essentially operates like a furnace. This kicks on if your heat pump can’t handle things in its usual way.
If your heat pump is blowing some cold air, there are a few things that may be going wrong. Luckily, almost all of them are an easy fix for a certified heat pump repair team. These issues might include:
