How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Maintained?
We advise scheduling a technician at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When climates start to change, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.
Your system works all the time to keep your home comfy. All of that effort can create strain or even a repair call, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Maintenance List
You already know tune-ups are vital for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what steps should you take to plan for your annual tune-up? Here are a few DIY things to finish before your Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co. specialist shows up:
- Examine your outdoor system. Your heat pump ought to stay free year-round to keep your house comfortable. Double check there’s no clutter on top of or around your system. You’ll need about two feet open surrounding your equipment in each direction.
- Clean up your system. Make sure your outdoor unit is free of dirt. If you notice dirt buildup, turn it off and gently rinse it with a low pressure hose. Remove pollutants indoors your home by cleaning your vents.
- Routinely put in a new your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump running well. Remember to change it every several months.
