Signs Your Heat Pump Is in Need of Repair
While it’s easy to know your heat pump is in need of repair when it stops working altogether, there are other, less obvious signs that your heat pump may be in need of help. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, call Total Comfort, your expert Twin Cities HVAC company.
- Your energy bill is higher than usual: While it’s normal for your energy bill to fluctuate throughout the year, one thing that’s not normal is for it to skyrocket for no reason. If your current bill has you picking your jaw up off the floor, your heat pump could be the culprit. One of our experienced HVAC technicians can take a look at your heat pump and determine what the issue is.
- Your heat pump is making weird noises: While your heat pump should make some noise, it should be more akin to a humming sound rather than a screeching, rattling, or gurgling noise. If you hear any of the aforementioned noises coming from your heat pump, it’s time to call in a professional. Each noise indicates a different issue with your heat pump, but the technicians at Total Comfort will thoroughly assess the problem and make the necessary repairs to get your heat pump back to working order.
- You notice a strange smell coming from your heat pump: While some smells can indicate mold or a dead animal inside your heat pump, other smells indicate much more dangerous issues. If you notice a burning smell coming from your heat pump, call a professional immediately. A burning smell is a sign that there’s an electrical issue with your heat pump, which is a potential fire hazard. At Total Comfort, we’ll have a technician at your home within hours – not days – to fix any potential electrical issues.
- Your home’s temperature is no longer comfortable: If your heat pump is on full blast but you just can’t get your home to heat up or cool down, it’s time to call in an expert to look at your heat pump. This problem could be caused by an array of issues ranging from fan or fan motor to thermostat issues. Call your trusted Twin Cities HVAC company, Total Comfort, to assess the situation and diagnose the problem correctly.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I change the filter in my heat pump?
At Total Comfort, we suggest checking your air filter every month. If it looks dirty or clogged, replace it, unless it is a reusable filter that can be washed and reinstalled. Basic fiberglass filters will last 1 to 3 months, while pleated or high-efficiency filters can last 3 to 6 months or longer.
Can I put a cover on my outdoor heat pump?
Heat pumps are designed to handle harsh outdoor conditions, so they do not need to be covered, and except for a few specially designed enclosures, covering the condenser can actually harm efficiency and cause system damage.
What temperatures do heat pumps work best at?
Standard heat pumps can operate effectively down to 30 degrees, below which supplemental heat will be necessary. High-performance heat pumps and hybrid systems are also available that can operate efficiently even in the sub-zero temperatures of a Minnesota winter.
Why is my heat pump so loud?
If your heat pump is abnormally loud, the fan belt or blades may be damaged, a panel may be loose, or there may be airflow obstructions. If you hear noises like grinding, screeching, or squealing, the fan motor or compressor may be damaged. Call Total Comfort for in-depth diagnosis and repairs.
Why is my heat pump leaking?
Water leaks may be due to a clogged condensate drain, a failed condensate pump, or a frozen evaporator. Oil or refrigerant leaks can be caused by damaged refrigerant lines, leaking valves, or corroded coils.
How can I reset my heat pump?
To reset a heat pump, turn the breakers in the main service panel off, then back on. If the system does not start back up or shows an error code, call a professional HVAC contractor for repairs.
What is the average life expectancy of a heat pump?
Most heat pumps will last 12 to 15 years, though some may last over 20 with a quality installation and an excellent maintenance record.
Why does my heat pump smell?
A few odors on the first start for the season is normal, but persistent sour or musty odors may indicate bacteria or mold contamination, while burning plastic smells may indicate electrical problems. Contact Total Comfort for help with heat pump odors.
