We love heat pumps here in Washington State. They’re an ideal way to provide comfort for a home around the year. During our summers, they have the power of the best air conditioning systems to cool down a house without excessive energy waste. Then, during our winters, heat pumps always have enough thermal energy outdoors to pull into a house to keep it cozy—and with far less electrical power than a furnace uses.
Because heat pumps can switch between heating and cooling modes, they can also run into a malfunction where they get stuck in one mode or another. You may run into trouble during the winter and discover your heat pump will only work in cooling mode when you turn it on. Not a good situation in cold weather! We’ll take a look at why a heat pump might have this problem and when you’ll need to call us for heat pump repair in Ellensburg, WA.
