Lack of refrigerant in a heat pump can lead to serious consequences.
If you notice that your heat pump is not working properly or that it is not producing enough heat or cold, it is possible that the refrigerant is at an insufficient level. A lack of refrigerant can cause the system to overheat and damage the heat pump or even the home.
Refrigerant is necessary for the compressor to operate properly and to allow air to flow through the system. Without this fluid, the heat pump will be unable to function properly.
Additionally, lack of refrigerant can cause a leak in the system and increase energy consumption.
When these problems occur, it is important to check the system using your phone app's diagnostic tool and have the refrigerant topped up if necessary. If refrigerant shortage is not taken care of in time, it can lead to costly repairs and a higher energy bill.
Do not hesitate to have the watertightness of your installation checked if necessary.
