How Frequently Should My Heat Pump Be Worked on?
We recommend calling in a specialist at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures first get warmer or colder, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.
Your system works all the time to keep you comfortable. All of that work can cause tension or even a repair call, especially if you don’t do maintenance.
Heat Pump Maintenance Work List
You already realize tune-ups are important for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what can you do to prepare for your regular maintenance? Here are a few DIY things to do before your M & S Heating & Air LLC specialist shows up:
- Check your outside system. Your heat pump needs to be kept free year-round to keep your home pleasant. Make sure there’s no waste on top of or near your unit. You’ll want about two feet open around your equipment in every direction.
- Clean up your unit. Make sure your exterior equipment is clean. If you see visible dirt, shut it down and gently spray it with a low pressure hose. Remove dust inside your house by cleaning your vents.
- Routinely change your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air healthy and your heat pump operating as it should. Be sure to buy a new one every few months.
