3 Ways to Prolong the life of a Heat Pump

Regular heat pump maintenance should be considered part of any home improvement plan. Proper maintenance of your heat pump system helps prolong the life expectancy of the unit in a variety of ways:

Regular Maintenance

The best way to keep your heat pump in great shape for seasons to come is to schedule professional maintenance with Fairfield-Hamilton Heating & Cooling annually. We can check for all the problems mentioned above and handle more complex issues. Our technicians will check your ductwork, inspect your thermostat, and much more.

Refrigerant Levels

A proper refrigerant charge enables the system to perform like it’s supposed to. Heat pumps that operate low on the refrigerant struggle to keep up with heating and cooling needs and can damage the compressor.

Proper Air Flow

Clogged air filters are the biggest, most common problem with malfunctioning heat pumps. Dust, dirt, and debris can block or reduce airflow. Not only does this prevent you from feeling the full heating or cooling power of your heat pump system, but it also overworks the system and decreases its overall performance. If you’re having problems with your heat pump, check the air filters first to make sure it’s not just a clogged filter. We recommend checking the filter once a month.

Common Heat Pump Maintenance Questions & Answers

What are the benefits of heat pump maintenance?

Regular maintenance on your heat pump will boost energy savings, help to avoid unexpected breakdowns or repairs, reduce wear and tear on various parts for a longer lifespan, keep your warranty in good shape, and this is just to name a few.

What is Checked During Heat Pump Service?

During a heat pump maintenance service call from Fairfield-Hamilton Heating & Cooling, our certified heat pump technician evaluates your system’s performance with the thermostat is set in various modes of operation. This helps us determine its condition and see if adjustments or repairs are necessary. After that, we turn off the power to perform several cleaning and inspection tasks.

How do I maximize my heat pump’s efficiency?

Your heat pump uses a large coil outside your home and another coil inside to provide heat transfer for both the cooling and heating of your home. The coil outside gets exposed to the elements your-round. It tends to collect dirt, debris, and other contaminants, especially when it gets wet. Your indoor coil is in or on your indoor air handler unit. Because of condensation, it tends to attract airborne pollutants like mold, dust, mildew, and pet dander. Because both of these coils operate at their best when they are clean, it’s important to free them up from the buildup of dirt and debris. Without proper maintenance and cleaning, dirty coils add strain to your system as it works harder to keep up with demands for heating and cooling. While decreasing efficiency, it’s also increasing the stress on the fans, motors, and other parts of the system. In addition to the coils, it’s important to keep your heat pump’s air filter clean and to change it regularly to facilitate a more efficient performance. Clogged, dirty old air filters obstruct airflow. This leads to decreased comfort, higher utility bills, and, in severe cases, a complete breakdown of the system.
