Common Heat Pump Problems
Over our many decades of serving the Chester County area’s HVAC needs, we’ve diagnosed and repaired every heat pump problem imaginable. These are the most common issues we find in Chester County heat pumps:
- Faulty reversing valve – If this valve fails, your heat pump will be unable to switch from cooling mode to heating mode.
- Electrical failure – Your heat pump relies on many electrical components to help it run its compressor and fan motors. When one of them fails, it needs to be replaced to get your heat pump working again.
- Outdoor unit is iced over – Your heat pump keeps itself from frosting over by running defrost cycles. If something causes the defrost function to fail, the outdoor unit can ice over. Working while covered in ice puts a lot of strain on your heat pump and can cause it to break down.
- Leaking refrigerant – Unlike an AC, your heat pump uses refrigerant in the winter to help it transfer heat. A refrigerant leak will leave it unable to do its job.
If you think your heat pump may be having difficulty, don’t wait for it to break down entirely! Contact us today 610-400-8510 or call for heat pump repair service in Chester County.
Heat Pump Maintenance
Because it both heats and cools your home, your heat pump works harder than any other heating system. If something is out of alignment, malfunctioning, or seeing the effects of regular wear and tear, your heat pump can become less efficient. This makes your energy bills higher as your unit works harder and harder to do its job. It also puts stress on your system, which makes it more likely to break, malfunction, or wear out. At Mattioni Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we offer maintenance plans to keep your heat pump running smoothly, year after year. We recommend having your heat pump tuned up twice a year: once in the spring before the weather gets hot, and again in the fall before the temperatures plummet. This will ensure that it’s ready to provide for your comfort needs all year long.
Heat Pump Replacement & Installation
While heat pumps are durable and can last 15+ years with proper maintenance, eventually it becomes more cost-effective to replace your old heat pump. Mattioni Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help you choose a new heat pump that fits your needs, preferences, and budget, making sure it’s perfectly sized for your home. Then, we’ll quickly install, calibrate, and optimize it for your home with minimal downtime.

Heat Pump FAQs
A heat pump uses the concept of energy transfer to heat and cool your home. By moving hot air out of your home in the summer, replacing it with cooler air from outside, or transferring heat energy from the outdoor air into your home in the winter, while moving your home’s colder air out, these systems can efficiently heat and cool your home. This means they are an all-in-one home comfort solution.
Heat pumps start to lose their efficiency when the temperature drops below the freezing point. Most will have an emergency heating option that will kick in to continue heating your home when heat transfer becomes the less efficient option.
Your heat pump will operate at maximum efficiency if you keep it well-maintained and address repair issues at the first sign of a problem. A maintenance checkup at the start of the heating season and the cooling season will help with your efficiency goals.
Yes, heat pumps provide an energy-efficient alternative to a traditional HVAC system. They can heat and cool an entire home all year long.
Because a heat pump works on the idea of energy transfer, the air that comes out of your register may not feel hot in the winter or cold in the summer. If you are used to an HVAC system, this may make you think something is wrong with the heat pump. This is normal operation, because the air being transferred may be cooler than your body temperature, so it feels cool to your skin. As long as the air coming from the supply vent measures hotter than the air near the return vent, usual 15 to 30 degrees higher, the heat pump is operating properly.
