Heat Pump Repairs
We have helped resolve even the strangest heat pump problems so Texas homeowners can sleep well at night — and not raise their eyebrows at their next heating and cooling bill.
At SM Air, we often troubleshoot these common heat pump problems:
Heat Pump Cycles Too Frequently
Is your heat pump constantly turning on and off? A normal heat pump will cycle through its heating or cooling process every 10 minutes or more on average.
However, when your heat pump shuts down its heating or air conditioning too early just to start up again briefly, this process of short-cycling can be annoying and expensive. Don’t force your heat pump to work in overdrive for much longer.

Heat Pump Not Heating Properly
If your heat pump is blowing cold air instead of heat in the winter, it could mean the unit has a low refrigerant charge or that the outside unit is dirty or blocked by debris.
If you haven’t changed your air filters in the past few months, dirty filters may be the cause of this pesky heat pump problem. There may also be a malfunction within the unit or a combination of internal and external damages that could cause your heat pump to heat or cool improperly.
Ice on Heat Pump
If your heat pump is icing up in the summer, you could have a big repair issue on your hands. Ice accumulating on your indoor unit indicates a problem within your HVAC system, such as leaking refrigerant, a clogged filter, or grimy coils.
Thankfully, a licensed HVAC contractor can help you identify the issue and resolve it before it causes further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Heat Pumps
How many years does a heat pump last?
If you’re considering whether you need heat pump repair, maintenance, or a replacement, it might be that your heat pump has gotten old. Fortunately, heat pumps can last 10 to 15 years on average.
With timely repairs and maintenance, your heat pump will be better able to stand the test of time as a reliable heating and cooling unit.
How often do I need to service my heat pump?
Our HVAC technicians recommend that you service your heat pumps at least once a year, and commercial units should be serviced between two to four times per year, depending on their usage.
Should I repair or replace my heat pump?
Here are some questions to consider before repairing or replacing a heat pump:
- Have you maintained the system?
- Does it work well?
- Is it draining your wallet?
- How old is the system?
If your heat pump is not well-maintained, doesn’t work properly, continues to cost you too much money, or is too old, it’s time to consider heat pump replacement.
Why is my heat pump blowing cold air when the heat is on?
- The heat pump isn’t actually blowing cold air, it just feels like it.
- Your heat pump is blowing cold air because it’s in “defrost mode.”
- Something’s actually wrong with the unit and requires an HVAC professional.
