Protect Your HVAC System With These 5 Heat Pump Upkeep Tips, Lake Wazeecha, Wisconsin

Are you ready to get rid of your old furnace or HVAC system and schedule a heat pump installation? If so, you may wonder how much maintenance the latter requires. Fortunately, with just a bit of upkeep between regular service appointments, your heat pump will consistently warm your home efficiently. HVAC contractors recommend the following tips to keep it in excellent shape. 

5 Helpful Heat Pump Maintenance Tips

1. Clean Outdoor Equipment

If your heat pump is located outdoors, make sure it remains clear of dirt, debris, and obstructions. During the winter months, remove snow and ice buildups from the pump to prevent damage.

2. Check the Thermostat

HVACIf your heat pump’s thermostat setting is too high or low, your system may be overworked and wasting energy. Avoid breakdowns and increased utility bills by keeping the temperature between 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Change Filters 

Approximately once per month, check your heat pump filter. Replace it when you notice accumulations of dust and debris. Doing so will ensure efficient operation, energy conservation, and manageable utility expenses.

4. Trim Foliage

Trim any trees or shrubs planted in the vicinity of your heat pump. This will keep fallen leaves and branches from clogging your system or damaging components. Plant any new foliage several feet away from your heat pump to prevent airflow blockages. 

5. Hire the Pros

Schedule routine heat pump maintenance once or twice per year. During each service appointment, your HVAC contractor will recalibrate the thermostat, remove obstructions, inspect the electrical wiring, and test the controls. As a result, your pump will need fewer repairs and have a longer lifespan.
