Heat Pump Maintenance

Safeguard Your Cooling Investment

If you own a heat pump or are thinking about installing one in your Lancaster, CA home, you should have a qualified HVAC professional routinely maintain the system. Our Energy Savings Agreement includes scheduled maintenance that extends the useful life of your AC system and keeps it operating at peak performance during hot summer days.

Heat Pump Maintenance Tips for Homeowners

In addition to investing in an Energy Savings Agreement, there are a few do-it-yourself tasks you can perform throughout the year to improve your heat pump’s functionality and longevity. These include:

  • Cleaning or changing filters no less than every three months. During summer and winter use, change or clean filters once per month.
  • Keep your outdoor unit free of debris, including twigs, trash, and weeds. When clutter builds up around heat pump equipment, it can make its way through the grill and damage internal components.
  • Dust and clean the indoor supply and return registers.
