Stuck Reversing Valve
One problem that is unique to heat pumps is that the reversing valve can get stuck. With other air conditioners, a separate heater is also attached to your thermostat. When you switch between heating and cooling, one system turns off and the other one turns on.
But with a heat pump, switching modes on your thermostat means that your heat pump switch is made using a reversing valve. If your reversing valve gets stuck, it will not switch from heating mode to cooling mode or the other way around.
This can be a problem as temperatures heat up this summer, or if they begin to cool down again in the winter. It’s definitely a reason to schedule a repair appointment. Sometimes, we can troubleshoot and get your reversing valve working again. But other times, we simply need to replace the component with a newer one.
