HEAT PUMP MAINTENANCE YOU CAN TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
These small tasks are several of the best ways to keep your heat pump running efficiently between our maintenance inspections.
Here are some typical undertakings you can handle on your own:
- Maintain clear space surrounding your heat pump. Your heat pump needs space to work, so it’s important to keep an eye on neighboring greenery. Bushes, shrubs and trees need to be trimmed back at least two feet from the system.
- Make sure the heat pump is clean. Leaves, grass clippings and other yard debris can lower your heat pump’s efficiency and drive up your utility costs. Call 407-972-3091 to book a maintenance appointment at least once during the year to make sure your heat pump is clean and working efficiently.
- Change your air filter. Air filters help prevent pollutants from getting into your HVAC system and circulating throughout your home. When the air filter becomes clogged, it can hinder airflow and generate serious problems. While most air filters last for up to three months, our Orlando heating and cooling team suggest checking the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific model and change the air filter as proposed or whenever it appears dirty.
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN PROFESSIONAL HEAT PUMP MAINTENANCE
Your heat pump system is one of the most key parts of maintaining your home comfort. By working continually throughout the year, it becomes vulnerable to wear and tear.
While a poorly maintained pump is noisy and inefficient, a well-maintained heat pump will run quietly and smoothly. Ongoing maintenance can even prevent many typical problems from happening to your heat pump.
Our experts utilize a thorough checklist for every job to confirm that all components will continue to work properly. This includes the following services:
- Inspecting key parts for damage. If one of these vital components breaks down, it could impact other parts of your heat pump as well.
- Cleaning away dirt, dust or other buildup. A clean heat pump will operate considerably more efficiently.
- Checking the refrigerant levels. If these are too low, your heat pump will struggle to keep your home at the appropriate temperature.
- Oiling moving parts. Keeping them well-greased will lower the chance of them becoming damaged.
- Reviewing electrical components. We’ll review parts like wires and connection hookups to make sure your heat pump is working safely.
