When Should You Replace Your Heat Pump?

If your heat pump cannot get out of the hot or cold mode, the reversing valve may have failed. The thermostat could also be the culprit. Our engineers will diagnose, remove, and replace whichever item may be causing the problem.

The heat pump will not start.
If the heat pump fails to tart, the start capacitor is burnt out and will need to be replaced.
What are the Benefits of an Efficient Heat Pump?
