How Often Should My Heat Pump Be Maintained?
We advise bringing in a pro at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When seasons begin to get warmer or colder, it’s a good time for heating and cooling service.
Your unit operates all year to keep your family comfortable. All of that effort can cause strain or even a service call, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Service List
You already understand maintenance is important for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what can you do to plan for your upcoming maintenance? Here are a couple DIY tasks to do before your Gordon Air Conditioning specialist arrives:
- Inspect your outdoor equipment. Your heat pump needs to stay free all the time to keep your house pleasant. Double check there’s no clutter resting on or by your system. You’ll want about two feet free around your unit in all directions.
- Spruce up your unit. Ensure your outside unit isn’t dirty. If you spot dirt buildup, shut it off and delicately spray it with a decreased pressure hose. Eliminate dirt inside your residence by wiping your vents clean.
- Periodically replace your your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air fresh and your heat pump running efficiently. Make sure to replace it every several months.
