As the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, many of us are thinking about how to keep our homes cool and comfortable. While heat pumps are a great way to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home, they do require some maintenance.
Tips For How To Maintain A Heat Pump
Clean Outside the Unit
You want to make sure that you're keeping the area around your heat pump unit clean. Over time, debris can build up on the unit and obstruct the airflow. Cleaning the area around your heat pump unit will help ensure that it's running efficiently.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service. We understand that your HVAC system is important to you, and we'll treat it as if it were our own. On top of that, we know that your time is valuable, so we'll always work hard to ensure that your experience with us is positive from start to finish.
Check Refrigerant Levels
The refrigerant level in your heat pump helps to transfer heat. If it's low, then the unit won't work as efficiently and can start to cause problems. Make sure you check the refrigerant level periodically and add more if needed.
Wide Range of Services
The air ducts in your heat pump need to be replaced every few years to ensure good airflow through the unit. If the ducts are old and worn, they can start to leak air and cause your heat pump to work less efficiently. Try cleaning them out first, but if the airflow doesn't improve, it might be time to schedule a heat pump service to have those replaced.
