I have smoke coming from my heat pump?

Most likely your heat pump is in a defrost mode and is melting the ice that has built up on the coil from the natural functioning of the heating mode of the heat pump.  What you are seeing is steam and not smoke.

If it is smoke you can usually smell something burning.  If in doubt shut off the power to your heat pump and have it checked by an HVAC professional.
