How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Worked on?
We recommend calling in a specialist at least twice annually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When seasons first fluctuate, it’s a great time for heating and cooling service.
Your equipment works all year to keep you comfortable. All of that work can lead to stress or even a malfunction, especially if you don’t maintain it.
Heat Pump Tune-Up Checklist
You already understand service is essential for an efficient, trustworthy heat pump. But what steps should you take to prepare for your upcoming tune-up? Here are a couple DIY things to do before your AC Sales specialist visits:
- Check your outdoor unit. Your heat pump needs to remain clear at all times to keep your house comfortable. Be sure there’s no waste on or near your system. You’ll want about two feet clear surrounding your unit in every direction.
- Spruce up your system. Double check your exterior equipment is free of dirt. If you spot dirt buildup, turn it off and slowly clean it with a limited pressure hose. Get rid of dirt within your house by dusting your vents.
- Routinely put in a new your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air healthy and your heat pump running efficiently. Be sure to buy a new one every couple of months.
