Common Commercial Heat Pump Problems

Many businesses rely on heat pumps to provide their commercial space with both warm and cool air throughout the year. After years of use, some heat pump units will begin to malfunction and it may not be easy to diagnose the cause. Common commercial heat pump problems typically include failure to turn on, failure to produce heat or airflow, or failure to cycle off.

Troubleshooting Commercial Heat Pumps

If your commercial heat pump will not turn on:

  • Make sure the unit switched on and connected to a power supply
  • Check to see if the circuit breakers are on and/or need to be reset
  • Make sure the thermostat is functioning and has working batteries

If your commercial heat pump is on, but will not produce heat or airflow:

  • Check for ice buildup on the exterior cabinets
  • Check the thermostat for a diagnostic code indicating the heat pump is locked out
  • Make sure all air vents are not obstructed by furniture, plants, curtains, or other equipment

If your commercial heat pump will not cycle off:

  • Make sure the thermostat isn’t set too high
  • Check for refrigerant leaks and ice buildup
  • Inspect the building for inadequate interior insulation
