Heat Pump Maintenance in Haines City

If you want your heat pump to work well through all the Haines City seasons, periodic service is crucial. It’s the simplest way to save energy and avoid a costly, inconvenient breakdown.

Without a seasonal tune-up, your heat pump can cost you quite a bit in electricity bills and home comfort. Studies show heat pumps without maintenance work much harder.

An especially neglected outdoor unit can use 10 to 25 percent more energy than a regularly serviced unit, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

You’ll see that shown on your heating and cooling costs every month—and it won’t be cheap.

Maintenance makes your HVAC more dependable too. You could have trouble lurking just around the corner. A professional service visit can help take care of them before they become something worse. You’ll avoid service calls for routine problems like freezing up or nonstop running. And that saves you time and money.

Heat Pump Maintenance Checklist

You already know maintenance is important for an efficient, dependable heat pump. But what can you do to get ready for your regular tune-up? Here are some DIY things to finish before your Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. technician visits:

  • Check your outdoor unit. Your heat pump needs to be kept clear year-round to keep your home comfortable. Double check there’s no debris on or around your unit. You should have about two feet open around your unit in each direction.
  • Tidy up your system. Ensure your outdoor unit is clean. If you see dirt or grime, shut it off and gently clean it with a lower pressure hose. Get rid of dust and dirt inside by cleaning your vents.
  • Regularly change your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump working efficiently. Make sure to change it every few months.

When your technician does arrive, they’ll have a separate list of their own to tackle. Here’s a few things your Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. expert will do during routine maintenance.

  • Thoroughly check your system. Your technician will check out a variety of different aspects of your system—including your ducts, coil, blower, motor and more—for dust and dirt.
  • Clean your system. If they detect buildup in your system, your technician will handle it. They’ll also clean your coils and condensation pan.
  • Check refrigerant. Your technician will take a look at your refrigerant level and refresh it if needed.
  • Take a look at moving parts. Your system is built from parts that need to work together easily. If your technician finds trouble, they’ll make sure to lubricate your system’s parts.
  • Check electrical connections. Your system is a complicated, electrical appliance. Make sure it’s safe with a visit from a Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. technician.

How Often Should I Have Maintenance Done on My Heat Pump?

We recommend bringing in a professional at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures start to change, it’s a great time for a system tune-up. After all, your system works all the time to keep your home comfortable. All of that work can cause strain or even a breakdown, especially if left without maintenance.
