There is no doubt about it, a well-maintained heat pump will work better and last longer than a neglected one, and a maintenance agreement is a great way to ensure it gets the TLC it needs. With the right attention, your heat pump will use less energy, perform to the max, and be less likely to need expensive repairs. The right HVAC maintenance agreement leads to a longer life span for your heat pump.

While there are certainly some maintenance steps to leave for the pros, there are a few steps you can take on your own. These include:

  1. Change filters regularly.
  2. As simple as it seems, regular air filter changes are the number one thing that will help prolong the life of your system as well as keep your energy usage lowered.

  3. Clean the outside coil.
  4. It’s easy to forget to inspect the outdoors components of your system, but it’s important to keep your coil clean.

  5. Clear the area around your unit.
  6. Keep the area around your outside unit clear from debris such as leaves, grass, and any other outdoor objects.

  7. Clear the area around your registers.
  8. Keep indoor air registers uncovered to ensure optimum airflow.

Some of the steps you can expect from a service technician during a biannual maintenance visit include:

  • The ductwork will be checked, blower motor, and other components for dirt and any issues.
  • The refrigerant levels will be checked.
  • All of the electrical wiring will be checked.
  • Parts will be lubricated and fan belts will be checked.

By taking the proper steps in heat pump maintenance and utilizing all the benefits professional HVAC maintenance agreements provide, you will be doing all you can to prolong the life and performance of your heat pump.
