Is Your Refrigerant Running?

If you think your heat pump might be leaking refrigerant, how do you tell? There are three telltale signs:
1.      Check your electric bill! If your heat pump is running on backup, you’ll have a much higher bill than normal.
2.      Check your gas bill too. If you have a dual fuel pump, your gas may also be much higher than normal.
3.      Check your thermostat! If you notice your thermostat “lagging,” your pump might be leaking refrigerant. This happens when your thermostat is trying to keep up with your temperature setting.

Refrigerant Leaks | Heating Ann Arbor

It might feel like the middle of winter, but spring is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to check your heat pump! As the experts on heating in the Ann Arbor area, one of the most common questions we’re asked this time of year is whether a heat pump is leaking refrigerant.

Most homeowners notice potential leaks in the spring because they notice not cooling like it should. Many homeowners don’t notice this during the winter because the heat pump runs on backup heat without them noticing. If your heat pump is doing this, it’s costing you money!
