Hi - I have a Magic Chef Heat Pump - installed 1988 when I purchased my condo. In the heat mode the condensor freezes up at around 32 degrees. This started I think last winter - heating bill for February was very high.
The tech says can't get to the faulty part without taking the condensor out and working on it. Now waiting for estimate of repair costs. In the mean time I've been getting estimates for a new heat pump. One company measured my condo to establish my heating needs. The others did not measure. Wondering if I should try to make it thru this winter with repair - or is the unit way past its prime.
