Much like all heating and cooling systems, heat pumps require maintenance and check ups. Heat pump maintenance allows your Childer’s technician to make sure everything is running efficiently. We want you to stay comfortable in your home, and that starts with preventative maintenance once a year!

General Maintenance Tips

  • Regularly clean the filters and follow the recommended replacement times by the manufacturer.
  • Keep the surrounding area around your unit clean. Snow, debris, plants or trees can cause your heat pump to not work efficiently. Maintaining the outdoor areas surrounding your pump can ensure proper airflow.
  • Examine the pump for loose electrical connections. If you notice a loose connection, give us a call before tightening. Your safety is our top priority.
  • Turn the unit on once every season if not regularly used. This could apply to vacation homes or cabins that aren’t frequently visited.
  • Have your heat pump checked by a professional once a year. This prevents problems before they arise, which keeps you comfortable and saves you money!

Common Issues With Heat Pumps

Without maintenance, a few common issues that can arise from heat pumps are your heat pump not turning on, your heat pump running constantly, or your heat pump not sufficiently heating or cooling your space. Refer to our heat pump repair page for more information on these common issues.

What Is Included In Heat Pump Maintenance

Your Childer’s technician will inspect every aspect of your heat pump to be sure you are ready for the season ahead. Listed below are a few things your technician may perform:

  • Inspect ducts, filters, blower, and indoor coil for dirt and other obstructions
  • Check for refrigerant leaks
  • Confirm sufficient airflow
  • Lubricate motors, and inspect belts for tightness and wear
  • Diagnose and seal duct leakage
  • Check your thermostat connection

Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. Give us a call to schedule your heat pump maintenance for this year!
