Heat pumps are a cost-effective solution to keep your home warm in New Jersey during winter. A heat pump is a device that moves heat from one spot to another using a small amount of energy. These machines use the temperature of the ground or outside air to perfectly heat and cool your home without using as much energy as a water heater or air conditioners. Cold air is recycled out in the winter, while warm air is compressed and used to heat your home’s water and air. In the summer, the situation is the opposite.

Heat pumps provide the same benefits as boilers and water heaters while consuming a fraction of the energy! Give our specialists a call now to learn more about how a heat pump repair or heat pump installation could benefit your New Jersey home.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Heat Pump?

The cost of repairing a heat pump ranges from $250 to $950. On a mid-sized unit, most homeowners spend roughly $650 to repair the blower motor. Recharging the refrigerant in a small unit can cost as little as $90, while replacing the compressor in a large unit can cost as much as $3,500.

What Causes a Heat Pump to Stop Working?

Here are some of the most prevalent issues and expert tips to resolve them:

  1. The Heat Pump Doesn’t Run

This heat pump issue could be caused by a thermostat malfunction or a power outage. Check to see whether the thermostat needs to be adjusted or if it is broken and needs to be replaced. If the pump is still not operating after a replacement, the part may be the wrong type, and you’ll need to look into purchasing the suitable spare component.

In terms of power, make sure the heat pump is receiving it. Check to see if the power socket is turned on if the heat pump isn’t working. Check to see whether the heat pump’s fuse has been tripped or blown if the power source is on and it is still not operating.

If the fuse is the problem, depending on the situation, reset or replace it. As a safety precaution, make sure the power is turned off first.

  1. It Doesn’t Heat or Cool Properly

To begin, ensure  the thermostat is set to the desired temperature. If the heat pump still won’t heat up adequately, make sure the vent lid is open to allow air to circulate. Adjust them so that the airflow is directed towards you or the side of the room that needs to be heated.

Check to verify sure your coils are functioning properly. If your heat pump isn’t cooling, it’s most likely due to a dirty outdoor coil or fan. See whether cleaning them up makes a difference. Also, see if the air duct or the air handler are obstructed and clear them out.

If any of the pump’s auxiliary heating elements are damaged, you can replace them. Make sure you obtain parts that are compatible with your heat pump’s make and model.

  1. Heat pump blower stops working or freezes, tripping circuit breaker

A damaged belt could be the cause of the blower not operating. Purchase a new belt to verify that the motor and pump blower are properly connected. A broken belt is very tough to repair, so you’re better off buying a new one.

It’s typical for your heat pump to ice if the weather is particularly cold. Switch off the defrost cycle if it does not run on its own, allowing the condenser unit to defrost. Also, make sure there are no blocked air vents and that the air filter is clean.

  1. Incorrect Heat Pump Cycles

If your heat pump regularly goes on and off, you may have a thermostat problem. Either the thermostat isn’t set appropriately or it isn’t working at all. You can either recalibrate or replace the thermostat to fix this.

Your heat pump may have a blocked filter that prevents heat from blowing air properly in some circumstances. In this scenario, you should try to clean or replace the air filter so the air handler can do its job.  Also, evaluate if you have a faulty fan or valves that are preventing the heat pump from functioning properly.

  1. The Most Common Heat Pump Issue — Strange Noises

There are two forms of noises in this scenario. The heat pump is making rattling noises, which means there are loose parts inside. Or squeaky noises, which indicate that something is wrong with the pump and that you should have your heat pump inspected by a professional.

The rattling issue can be readily resolved by tightening any loose parts that are causing the heat pump to make unwelcome noises. Check for any additional loose pieces that need to be tightened.

Because heat pumps are usually built of metal, they will always make a noise as the metal heats and cools. However, noise can be reduced by insulating the area.

How Many Years Does a Heat Pump Usually Last?

A heat pump’s lifespan is determined by a number of factors, including the type of heat pump, your location, and how well the heat pump is maintained. Heat pumps typically last 15 years on average, while some only make it to ten years. Some of the newest models on the market now have a longer lifespan.

What Is The Average Cost of a Heat Pump System?

A heat pump replacement might cost from $4,900 to $12,500. The cost of the equipment, labor, and other fees are all included in this range.

This price range also includes variable-capacity heat pump systems, as well as a variety of system sizes and levels of sophistication.

The following factors can influence the cost of your heat pump replacement:

  1. The system’s capacity/power
  2. Efficiency
  3. Modifications to your existing HVAC equipment that you aren’t replacing
  4. Line set protection
  5. Costs of installation
  6. Rebates and tax credits
