Heat Pumps must be able to transfer heat through the outdoor coil via air flow across the coil. If the coils are dirty or clogged up with dust and debris it cannot produce heat or operate correctly. If you see abnormal frost and or ice build-up on the outdoor unit – heat pump for a prolonged period of time you may have a service issue that needs to be addressed immediately. (See the attached photo for an example.)
If the frosting condition persist it will shorten the life of your heat pump, consume more energy to heat your home or business and produce or cause comfort issues to be present.
