How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Serviced?
We suggest bringing in a pro at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures start to get warmer or colder, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.
Your system works all the time to keep your family cozy. All of that work can cause tension or even a service call, especially if you neglect maintenance.
Heat Pump Service Work List
You already realize service is vital for an efficient, trustworthy heat pump. But what can you do to get ready for your regular service? Here are a few DIY things to complete before your Western Mechanical, Inc. pro shows up:
- Inspect your exterior unit. Your heat pump ought to be kept unobstructed year-round to keep your home cozy. Be sure there’s no clutter on top of or near your system. You should have about two feet clear around your system in all directions.
- Spruce up your unit. Double check your outside equipment is free of dirt. If you see dirt buildup, shut it off and delicately rinse it with a decreased pressure hose. Eliminate dust within your residence by cleaning your vents.
- Periodically replace your your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump working efficiently. Make sure to replace it every few months.
