How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Maintained?
We advise bringing in a specialist at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When climates begin to fluctuate, it’s a great time for heating and cooling service.
Your equipment works all the time to keep your family comfortable. All of that effort can create strain or even a breakdown, especially if left without maintenance.
Heat Pump Tune-Up List
You already know maintenance is important for an efficient, trustworthy heat pump. But what can you do to prepare for your regular maintenance? Here are a couple DIY responsibilities to do before your Precision Mechanical technician shows up:
- Check your outside unit. Your heat pump should be kept free year-round to keep your home cozy. Be sure there’s no debris on or near your system. You’ll need about two feet clear surrounding your equipment in every direction.
- Spruce up your equipment. Ensure your exterior unit is free of dust. If you notice dirt buildup, shut it off and delicately rinse it with a limited pressure hose. Get rid of dirt within your rooms by dusting your vents.
- Routinely change your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air healthy and your heat pump running as it should. Make sure to get a new one every several months.
