How a Heat Pump Can Get Stuck in One Mode

Monday, January 15th, 2024

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.

Why Won’t Your Heating System Turn Off Regularly?

Monday, November 20th, 2023

Once you turn your heating system during the fall, you’ll expect it to follow a standard pattern. When the temperature becomes cold enough, the heater will turn on and run in cycles around 15 to 20 minutes long, then shutting down for around 10 minutes and turning back on if the temperature is still low. 

But you may run into a problem with your heater turning on and off at odd times. Maybe it’s running for too long, not turning off when you expect it to and making the house too hot. Or maybe it’s turning off too frequently, starting and stopping throughout the day so that it never keeps on long enough to properly warm the house.

We’re going to look into the reasons you’ve got a heating system that isn’t turning off with its normal regularity. In some cases, you can solve the problem on your own. In others, you’ll need to call professionals for heating repair in Ellensburg, WA.
