Smoking Heat Pump….KEEP CALM!

Would you be scared if your heat pump was smoking? If it is cold outside, what may appear to be smoke is likely steam.

But, why would your unit be steaming? Ruud Heat Pumps monitor themselves about every 60 minutes to determine if it needs to go into defrost mode. If it is icy out or very cold, your unit could go into defrost mode multiple times throughout the day!

While your unit is in defrost mode it will release steam and likely make some funny noises. This is perfectly normally, it is just your unit essentially warming itself up and thawing any ice.

Pretty neat…right?
