Heat Pump Problems: Not Enough Heat?

January 14th, 2019

cold-sweater-manWe often talk up the heat pump because not enough people know about how beneficial these systems are in a climate like the one we enjoy.

Replace the old furnace and air conditioner combo with a system that provides great cooling and energy-efficient heating when needed.

But what if you have a heat pump that isn’t providing the heat you need? Or maybe not providing any heat at all? When you make the switch on the heat pump from cooling mode (where it will be for most of the year) to heating mode, you might find yourself in this position. Let’s take a look at where the problem may lie.
