So to clear up any confusion & get the problem resolved as soon as possible I called my local heating & cooling worker to take a look at the issue
I genuinely appreciate doing landscaping outside, however landscaping is a good release for me especially on the weekends. I have a desk task & I do not get out of the office that much during the week. So being able to work outside in the flower beds & design what plants & flowers I want to put around my home is an exciting thing for me. Plus I just recently bought a zero turn grass mower & it has made working outside even better! When I was breaking my grass near the outdoor unit I was surprised to see steam coming from my outdoor unit, then my a/c was on because I set the temperature control to 76° because of how hot it was outside. I wasn’t sure why steam was coming from my outdoor unit I was thinking that maybe it was due to my heat pump going into defrost mode; However the unit should not be going into defrost mode. It didn’t make any sense to me why it would even go in that mode in the first place. So to clear up any confusion & get the problem resolved as soon as possible I called my local heating & cooling worker to take a look at the issue. It was a great thing that I did that because it turns out that the outdoor unit had a bad outdoor fan motor. This was something that I would not have been able to repair myself so I was lucky that my heating & cooling worker was able to come out that day to problem solve & repair the bad fan motor.
