With the winter season here, you may need to schedule a heat pump repair in Tarzana, CA with Kahn Air Conditioning. You may even need to arrange for a heat pump replacement to keep your home comfortable during the colder months.

They require regular maintenance and repairs to keep them working properly and to last a long time.
I was happy to have the chance to speak with you last week. Once again I want acknowledge what a pleasure it has been to work with Dan. As I said before, Dan is the best advertisement your company could ask for. He’s professional, knowledgeable and reliable.
My husband and I are so happy with the experience we had having our AC installed by Enrique and Jose. These gentlemen absolutely know their business. They did a fantastic job.
Dan, Enrique and Jose took great care during the installation. They left our home immaculate. You’d never know there was anyone working here. The experience was beyond anything we could have asked for.
We’ve been in this home 17 years. We have had workers here from painters, repair men and contractors etc. This has been the best and stress free experience we’ve ever had. A million thanks."
The most common heat pumps are air-source models, which transfer heat instead of making it from fuel. Ground-source or geothermal heat pumps are another common option. Air-source and geothermal heat pumps can be up to 65% more energy efficient than furnaces. To ensure these benefits, your heat pump may need some repairs over time.
One issue that develops with heat pumps has to do with the reversing valve. This part allows your heat pump to switch from cooling to heating mode. However, the reversing valve can get stuck in one position. Hence, you would not be able to switch to wintertime mode and would need to get the valve repaired or replaced.
A refrigerant leak is another problem that can develop. Heat pumps need refrigerant in the summer and winter time, and the refrigerant line may develop a hole or crack where fluid can leak. If this occurs, there will not be enough fluid to properly transfer heat.
Another common issue that leads to a heat pump repair involves electricity. A heat pump relies on electricity for the fan motors and compressor to work. Electrical failures can occur, though, and the wiring or connections need to be repaired.
Sometimes, situations arise that call for a heat pump replacement. Heat pumps generally last about 10 to 15 years. If your heat pump is reaching that point and seems to be not working well, it may be time to replace it. If you notice higher energy bills each month or have already arranged for heat pump repairs, then it is probably time to replace your heat pump. Heat pumps that make strange noises or potentially have a carbon monoxide leak should also be replaced.
Here is a summary of when it’s time for a heat pump replacement.
