How Heat Pumps Work
for Marble Falls, Kingsland, Granite Shoals, Burnet, Horseshoe Bay, and Cottonwood Shores Since 1978
Did you know that when your heat pump is heating your home that it periodically runs a mode called “defrost”? The defrost mode does the following to your heat pump and is no cause for concern:
- Your vents will start to blow mildly warm air not hot like when the unit is running correctly
- The outside heat pump will turn off its fan motor
- Steam/Vapor will begin coming from the heat pump
After the unit senses that it is defrosted or a period of time passes the unit will move from defrost mode to normal heating mode once again. If you believe that your system may have malfunctioned contact Ken’s Heating and Air today.
