oil leaking on my heat pump

The compressor in your heat pump is the same as the one on your A/C unit. It just works backwards. There is oil suspended in the refrigerent to help lubricate the compressor as it runs. Sometimes if there is a refrigerent leak, the oil can leak as well. Too much oil leaks out, the comprssor will sieze up and, unfortunately, need replacing.
