Why does my heat pump smoke in the winter?

You are probably not seeing smoke, but instead steam.  During a heat pump’s normal winter operation a thin layer of ice will form on the outdoor unit.  The heat pump will then go through a defrost cycle and melt the ice off, resulting in the steam you see coming off the outdoor unit.
