How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Worked on?
We advise bringing in a professional at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures start to change, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.
Your equipment operates all year to keep your home cozy. All of that exertion can lead to tension or even a repair call, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Tune-Up Checklist
You already know maintenance is essential for an efficient, trustworthy heat pump. But what tasks can you take to plan for your annual tune-up? Here are a couple DIY things to do before your Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc technician shows up:
- Inspect your outside unit. Your heat pump should stay unobstructed at all times to keep your home cozy. Be sure there’s no debris resting on or by your unit. You should have about two feet open surrounding your system in all directions.
- Spruce up your unit. Ensure your exterior equipment isn’t dirty. If you see dirt buildup, shut it down and gently clean it with a limited pressure hose. Remove pollutants inside your home by cleaning your vents.
- Periodically replace your your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump running as it should. Remember to get a new one every several months.
