How Often Should My Heat Pump Be Worked on?
We recommend scheduling a technician at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When climates begin to get warmer or colder, it’s a good time for heating and cooling service.
Your system runs year-round to keep your home comfy. All of that exertion can cause stress or even a breakdown, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Tune-Up Checklist
You already realize maintenance is vital for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what can you do to prepare for your annual tune-up? Here are a few DIY things to finish before your Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning technician visits:
- Inspect your outside equipment. Your heat pump needs to be kept free all the time to keep your residence cozy. Be sure there’s no debris on top of or near your equipment. You’ll want about two feet free around your unit in every direction.
- Spruce up your unit. Double check your outdoor system is free of dirt. If you spot visible dirt, shut it off and slowly rinse it with a limited pressure hose. Remove dust within your home by wiping your vents clean.
- Periodically put in a new your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air healthy and your heat pump operating efficiently. Be sure to get a new one every few months.
