What Does Heat Pump Maintenance Entail?
During heat pump maintenance, one of our professional technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of both the indoor and outdoor unit components. They'll check the indoor coil for cleanliness and correct function, verify the correct thermostat operation, and inspect electrical terminals.
They'll also ensure the correct electric control so that the heating system and cooling systems do not run simultaneously. Additionally, they assess airflow, check and replace air filters, clean outdoor coils, and ensure there are no refrigerant leaks. Loose connections are tightened, and proper drainage of the condenser coil is verified. To ensure the heat pump works optimally, the technician can lubricate the motors, inspect belts for wear, and even check for duct leakage.
The Importance of Heat Pump Maintenance
Scheduling regular heat pump service is important for several reasons. A well-maintained heat pump system can save energy, translating into reduced energy consumption and subsequent cost savings. Since heat pumps function by transferring heat, ensuring clean outdoor coils and adequate airflow can optimize their heating and air conditioning capabilities. Moreover, when air filters are clean, and the system has the correct refrigerant charge, the cooling ability of the pump is improved considerably.
Preventative maintenance can also prevent costly heat pump repairs in the future. For example, by addressing minor issues such as a leaking gutter or checking for correct thermostat operation, homeowners can prevent larger problems that may compromise the entire HVAC system. Essentially, proper maintenance ensures the heat pump delivers cool air during the cooling season and hot water during the heating season, all while operating at the desired temperature.
How Often Should Heat Pumps Be Maintained?
Homeowners should schedule heat pump service at least once a year — however, those who use their heat pumps as both heating and cooling systems might benefit from servicing them before each heating and cooling season. If a heat pump does not maintain the desired temperature, it might be due to air filter clogs, reducing airflow, or an issue with the programmable thermostat. Ducted systems may suffer from duct leakage, affecting the system's efficiency. Homeowners might also need to clean their outdoor coils occasionally if they notice a decline in the system's transferring heat capabilities.
Moreover, unusual noises, a sudden increase in energy bills, or reduced cooling or heating capacity are indicators that a heat pump repair might be necessary. To ensure the system runs smoothly, homeowners should not wait for these signs but instead adopt a preventative maintenance approach, seeking professional help to inspect electric terminals, tighten connections, and ensure the system has the correct refrigerant charge.
Regular check-ups by a professional technician ensure that every aspect of the heat pump, from the thermostat calls to the function of the outdoor unit, is in proper working condition. Proper servicing also ensures that homeowners can maximize energy savings and ensure that their HVAC system will function properly for years to come.
