Heat Pump Repair
Between the warm days and cold nights, Arizona residents often choose a heat pump over other heating systems. That’s because heat pumps are not only efficient at heating and cooling, but they’re eco-friendly too. However, like any mechanical system, heat pumps can malfunction without a moment’s notice.
When your heat pump stops working, it’s important to get to the bottom of things. Let’s take a look at common problems leading to heat pump failures and how Day & Night can help.
Is Your Heat Pump Not Working?
If your heat pump isn’t working, you’re probably wondering why. What caused it to malfunction? Is it a simple fix or something more complex? Getting to the bottom of your malfunctioning heat pump is important. Here are four common issues we see at Day & Night:
1. Clogged Air Filter
This is by far the most common reason why a heat pump would stop working. Dust and debris collect in the heat pump filter over time. This build-up blocks airflow and causes the system to work harder than it should.
A clogged air filter can lead to your system overheating and shutting down. It can even break the system altogether if not dealt with. Dirty air filters can also agitate asthma and cause other respiratory problems.
2. Malfunctioning Thermostat
Your thermostat is what signals the heat pump to turn on and off. If your thermostat malfunctions, your heat pump might struggle to produce warm or cool air—or it may not blow air at all.
Signs of a malfunctioning thermostat include faulty temperature control, rising energy bills, and a continuously running system. Luckily, a qualified HVAC technician from Day & Night can help.
3. Refrigerant Leak
Refrigerant cools your home during hot days. If your refrigerant is leaking, you may experience a hotter home, more expensive energy bills, or unusual hissing sounds coming from your heat pump unit.
Think you have a refrigerant leak? Call a professional for assistance. Day & Night can repair refrigerant leaks and install a new heat pump if needed.
4. Faulty Compressor
The compressor is supposed to condense coolant that’s circulated into the evaporator coil. When the compressor malfunctions or goes out, you might notice issues such as ticking noises, a tripped circuit breaker, warm air, and excess condensation around your heat pump.
How Long Do Heat Pumps Last?
Heat pumps are designed to last around 10 to 20 years. But even with the best care and maintenance, they don’t last forever. That being said, you can plan on at least one decade of reliable and consistent use.
If your heating pump is reaching the 10-year mark, it’s time to start considering a replacement. Contact a professional technician at Day & Night to assess your heat pump. Our team will suggest the best heat pump replacement for your household.

What Customers Are Saying
Read this 5-star Google review below regarding a new furnace install
“Look, there’s a reason this place has so many excellent reviews. I got oh so many quotes to replace my AC unit and move to a heat pump. Not only was Day & Night reasonably priced, the salesperson, Brian, was incredibly pleasant and responsive to deal with. We ending up having them not just install a new 5 ton roof unit, but fix some bad ductwork. The technicians, led by Eric, arrived on time, did their work efficiently, and were also super professional. Our house is now heating and cooling MUCH more evenly and efficiently. I would strongly recommend Day & Night Air to anyone looking to manage their HVAC.” - Rachel K.
