Why does my outdoor compressor to my heat pump “freeze up”?

There are several factors that can cause a compressor to freeze. First, check your filters. Any air restrictions can lead to freezing. Next, thaw your compressor out by turning off the cooling and just run the fan only. You can also switch the system to heat mode until the ice has thawed.

If this problem persists after you have checked your filters and thawed the system, then call us at Brubaker Inc. at 717-299-5641 or contact us here to schedule a service call.
