Your heat pump will soon be working overtime keeping your family cool and comfortable. Take a few moments as you’re out in the yard to tend to your heat pump — before the height of summer.
Heat pump care and service
Periodic cleaning and professional service for your heat pump are necessary for efficient performance, optimal cooling (and heating), and to prevent malfunctions. By maintaining a clean system, you’ll optimize air circulation, which is vital in order for your heat pump to heat and cool your home efficiently.
The core components responsible for efficient heating, cooling and air circulation are two blowers (indoor and outdoor), a compressor, and two heat-exchanger coils, from which refrigerant extracts and releases heat. Between service calls, follow these easy tips for keeping these core components of your heat-pump system clean and running smoothly.
Remember to turn off the electricity to the system before performing these steps.
