Heat Pumps and Record Snowfall


  I remember a rash of nuisance service calls rolling in on weekends like this, the snowfall being the key part.  It is amazing how well prepared a Heat Pump is for cold weather, with safeties, defrost controls, and supplemental heat (in most).  Unfortunately, they do not come with windshield wipers to keep the condensers clear of snow, and snow will decrease the airflow across the condenser to a breaking point.

  4. You didn't say how to take care of the het pump in cold weather when the coils are frosty. Do I pour water on them or what? Should I try and insulate the pipes? What I can do to maintain in frosty weather?
    Would appreciate your input. Than you
