Heat Pump Maintenance

Safeguard Your Heating Investment

Heat pumps are an energy-efficient way to heat and cool your Lancaster, CA home. If you own a heat pump or are thinking about installing one, hire a qualified HVAC professional to routinely maintain the system. Heat pump maintenance extends the useful life of your heating system and keeps it operating at peak performance during chilly winter days.

Heat Pump Maintenance Tips for Homeowners

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

  • Changing and cleaning filters every three months, and more often during periods of frequent winter usage.
  • Keeping outdoor heat pump equipment free of debris, including twigs, trash, and weeds. When clutter builds up around the outside unit, it can make its way through the grill and damage the internal components.
  • Dusting and cleaning your heat pump’s indoor supply and return registers.
