4 Benefits of Heat Pump Maintenance

When it comes to the HVAC equipment in your home, there’s absolutely no substitute for professional maintenance. In addition to making your expensive equipment last longer and run better, heat pump tune-ups have a variety of benefits.


Heat pump repairs are something homeowners all want to avoid. Professional maintenance is the key to helping you do so. During a heat pump maintenance visit, our heat pump technician will inspect, calibrate and clean every component of your system. They perform a complete heat pump tune-up. Our comprehensive maintenance checklist helps with small issues that might be going unnoticed. It could also help prevent bigger problems and even full system failure and breakdown.


Maintenance ensures every part is still in top-notch condition. It guarantees the most efficient heating and cooling for your home. Although there are some tasks homeowners can perform on their own, like checking the condensate line and making sure it’s dripping, there’s no substitute for professional maintenance. If your condensate line isn’t dripping when your cooling unit is on, your unit could very well stop working. Our tune-up technician can clear the line and check to make sure everything else is working.


We recommend checking air filters once every month and changing them at least once every quarter or as needed. These air filter capture dirt, dust, and other things, in the filter so it doesn’t get continually circulated throughout your home. This is one way that your heat pump helps to keep your indoor air quality healthy and clean. Neglecting to check and change your air filter when it’s dirty can cause your air filter to get clogged up. This prevents your heat pump from circulating air efficiently. A dirty air filter also causes your heat pump to have to work harder; it shortens its lifespan and costs more in energy because it’s working harder and longer than it needs to while providing the same comfort level.


Heat pump replacement can be expensive, and because of this, making your current system last as long as possible, running all day smoothly and all night, season after season, year after year, is the way to go. The best way to keep your heat pump in commission for as long as possible is to have our experts perform regular maintenance, which includes a heat pump tune-up. When you realize how much longer and better your heat pump will run with this service, you’ll see why we say the service pays for itself.

What’s Included in Heat Pump Maintenance?

Maintaining your heat pump can often go overlooked in the commotion of everyday life and home maintenance; here is the ultimate heat pump maintenance checklist to make maintaining your heat pump simple. Heat pump maintenance can improve energy efficiency by as much as 25%, according to Energy.gov. It can also lower operating costs, save time on repairs, and enable your heat pump to last longer. Our comprehensive checklist will give you an idea of how to proceed with DIY maintenance and what to expect when a professional technician services your system. In between maintenance calls, it is important for you to do the following to protect your heat pump and save energy:

  • Clean or change the air filter as recommended or, if you use the system more, at least once a month.
  • Remove foliage and debris from around the outdoor unit. Shrubs should be trimmed back at least 18 inches on all sides.
  • In winter, check for snow or ice buildup, as heat pumps need airflow to function properly.
  • Inspect the outdoor coils occasionally; if they are dirty, follow the manufacturer’s suggestions for cleaning them.
  • Clean the supply and return registers if they are dusty.
  • Keep all vents open so air can flow unimpeded, increasing system efficiency.
