The fact of the matter is that no heater or air conditioning system will ever be 100% reliable.

Heat Pump Repairs: Refrigerant Leaks

Monday, February 5th, 2018

service-timeModern HVAC systems are generally well-designed and you can count on trusted manufacturers to build them to last. There’s been plenty of time over the decades to innovate and to work kinks out of the systems. This applies to everything from the boiler to the heat pump. No mechanical system is going to function at a level of 100% reliability, though. Even the best systems fall prey to operational issues from time to time. Some of them are fairly simple fixes.

If you do use a heat pump, however, you really need to report any signs of trouble right away. Heat pumps, like central air conditioners, are reliant upon the refrigerant cycle in their operation. If you encounter a refrigerant leak in your system, then it is possible for that system to suffer serious damages when the problem is ignored or, as is often the case, simply unnoticed. In today’s post, we’ll be discussing what refrigerant does in the system, signs of refrigerant leaks, and how low refrigerant can affect your heat pump in Norwalk, CT.

As beautiful as winter in this part of the country may be, however, your overall enjoyment of it is going to depend upon a number of factors. Your commute, a good pair of boots, and, of course, the overall performance quality of your home heating system. If your heater is not functioning properly, no amount of idyllic scenery is going to make winter enjoyable.

The key to avoiding discomfort during the winter season is not to guarantee that your heater cannot and will not encounter operational problems.  That level of reliability is simply impossible for any mechanical system.
