How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Serviced?
We suggest calling in a professional at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When climates begin to change, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.
Your equipment runs all year to keep your home comfortable. All of that effort can create tension or even a malfunction, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Tune-Up List
You already understand maintenance is important for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what tasks can you take to plan for your upcoming maintenance? Here are some DIY responsibilities to do before your LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. professional arrives:
- Inspect your outdoor equipment. Your heat pump should remain unobstructed all the time to keep your home cozy. Make sure there’s no waste on top of or around your system. You should have about two feet free encircling your system in all directions.
- Spruce up your unit. Double check your outside unit is clean. If you notice dirt buildup, shut it off and gently spray it with a low pressure hose. Remove dirt indoors your home by wiping your vents clean.
- Routinely put in a new your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump operating as it should. Make sure to get a new one every couple of months.
