Heat Pump Repairs

Heat pump repair.

Heat pumps provide you with one of the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling systems in Pennsylvania. They do not burn fossil fuels but instead use electricity to transfer heat from the outdoors to your home—and vice versa.

They can handle our cold winters in Central Pennsylvania, able to deliver warmth to your home in subfreezing temperatures. Heat pumps operate like an air conditioner in the summer, removing heat and humidity from your Harrisburg home

But like any machine with moving parts, they are susceptible to the occasional repair. When that happens, give HL Bowman a call. Our repair team can tackle any repair problem in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry.

Heat Pump Repairs in Harrisburg

Here are a few of the most common repair problems with heat pumps:

  • Low refrigerant levels: when refrigerant levels run too low, your heat pump will struggle. We can send out a professional to recharge your system.
  • Thermostat problems: if your heat pump runs continuously, there could be a wiring issue creating miscommunication between your thermostat and system. You can trust our professionals to diagnose and address this issue.
  • Broken reversing valve: the valve reverses the refrigerant and allows your system to act as an air conditioner and furnace.  A professional will need to replace this component.
  • Broken compressor contractor: this part controls how much power goes to your heat pump. A damaged compressor contractor can cause your heat pump to run continuously. You’ll need a professional to replace it.

What Is the Average Life Expectancy of a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps typically last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, depending on the maintenance. With any piece of machinery, preventative maintenance goes a long way toward your equipment reaching its expected lifespan.

Should I Repair or Replace My Heat Pump?

Whether it’s a furnace or a heat pump, if the equipment is over 10 years old and the repair is significant, it makes more sense financially to replace it. What you most want to avoid is an unexpected breakdown with your heat pump or furnace in the middle of winter when it will prove costly and inconvenient to replace.

“York HVAC unit purchased from HL Bowman on 05/28/21 by my 89 year old father for $8600 (he and my mother passed in 2021 and 2022, respectively). We took over the property in August 2022. Have had several issues with servicing the unit. Most recently, ac does not work, placed a service call and tech came on 06/18/24. They want to charge us $2600 for labor and $1300 for refrigerant – compressor is covered under warranty. However, my contract says labor is covered. Called them to ask why we are being charged since it’s under warranty. They will not call me back. We are in the middle of a heat wave!”

“We are so pleased with everything from this company so far. The Rep (Joshua Zieger) came to our house and explained everything and had a pretty good handle of what we needed and did not try to upsell or overstay. He was very professional and on time. We were going to get another estimate, but Joshua was so good and impressive that we did not. Finding out that Joshua was a Veteran, was only icing on the cake for us! Thank you for your service Joshua !!!! Hoping the install goes just as well…..Stay tuned LOL”

“We are extremely satisfied with the service provided by HL Bowman. Ten months after we purchased our house, we had an older outside unit replaced with a new more efficant and enrolled in the Heat Pump Maintenance Plan. The costs incurred from this company are fair and reasonable. They make you feel like you are valued as customer. The technicians are always professional, knowledgeable and congenial. They take the time to answer all my questions and explain what is being done and why it is being done. If something is found that should be addressed, they make a recommendation without pressuring us to have it done. Mike was here yesterday to perform the spring routine preventative maintenance and performance check and it was a pleasure interacting with him. He recommended duct cleaning and we scheduled it to be performed.”

“There had been a communication breakdown regarding scheduling and I previously left a poor review because the tech never arrived.
However, amends have been made. The office manager phoned at 7pm on Friday night and squeezed me onto the Sat schedule to have a tech repair my unit. Tech arrived as promised, on time, and had the unit up and running in about 10 mins.
Experienced a bump in the road but H.L. Bowman made good their word. Very pleased.”
