Heat pumps are a cost-effective and cheaper alternative when compared to furnaces and air conditioners that run on non-renewable resources like gas and coal. Heat pumps transfer heat instead of creating it, which uses less electricity, leading to lower utility costs and a more eco-friendly approach to heating and cooling. However, issues ensue without heat pump maintenance, raising costs and lowering comfort. 

There’s no point in taking the economical or environmental approach if your heat pump works longer and harder to bypass system malfunctions. Get it back on track by contacting Perfection Heating, Air, and Refrigeration in Evansville, IN, and surrounding areas for a licensed, bonded, and insured team with an A+ BBB rating. 

What Is Heat Pump Maintenance?

Maintenance for heat pumps comprises two checklists: one completed by you DIY style every few months and the other done by a professional semi-annually. Your at-home checklist begins with changing the air filters every three months. Doing so ensures that dust and dirt don’t travel into the system, slowing parts down and blocking airflow. Similarly, clear ice, snow, and dirt from the outdoor compartment and brush away shrubs, tree limbs, and leaves that could clog it. 

A professional heat pump service provides a more intricate cleaning, as experts must take apart the unit and wipe down the coils and blower. If you have central air, they’ll also clean and inspect your ductwork, repairing broken seams and holes that release controlled air into your walls rather than through the vents. After doing so, the technicians will:

  • Check the thermostat for wiring or battery issues
  • Determine refrigerant levels and inspect for leaks
  • Ensure that the register is open and the reverse valve is working 

Why Is Heat Pump Maintenance Necessary?

Like maintenance for other HVAC systems, heat pump maintenance keeps the unit functioning optimally. With regular maintenance, your unit may even surpass its 15-year lifespan. That means you’ll have fewer replacements, saving you on installation and new unit costs.

Alongside long-term performance and a prolonged lifespan, you’ll also benefit from:

  • Lower monthly bills: The higher the energy efficiency is, the less energy your unit pulls. With regular maintenance, your system’s efficiency may increase by more than 20%.
  • Fewer repairs: Because maintenance allows professionals to catch problems in their early stages, the experts repair them before they become larger, affecting other parts. Regular checks allow for smaller and fewer repairs that are easier on your wallet.
  • Better air quality: Dirty units blow filth into your breathing air, especially if you don’t clean your filters, vents, or ducts. Rather than allow dust to contribute to asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses, schedule maintenance for a thorough cleaning.
