Heat Pump Maintenance in Naples

If you want your heat pump to work effectively through all the Naples seasons, regular service is crucial. It’s the least complicated way to save energy and avoid a costly, troublesome breakdown.

Without a semi-yearly tune-up, your heat pump can cost you quite a lot in electricity bills and home comfort. Studies show heat pumps without maintenance work much harder.

An extremely neglected outdoor unit can use 10 to 25 percent more energy than a maintained unit, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

You’ll see that reflect on your heating and cooling costs every month—and it won’t be cheap.

Maintenance makes your system more stable too. You could have complications lurking just under the surface. A professional service visit can help take care of them before they become a more expensive fix. You’ll avoid service calls for routine problems like freezing up or perpetual running. And that saves you time and money.

Heat Pump Maintenance Checklist

You already know maintenance is vital for an efficient, reliable heat pump. But what can you do to get ready for your regular tune-up? Here are some DIY tasks to finish before your Speedy Air Conditioning technician arrives:

  • Check your outdoor unit. Your heat pump needs to stay clear all the time to keep your home comfortable. Make sure there’s no debris on or around your unit. You should have about two feet open around your unit in every direction.
  • Spruce up your system. Ensure your outdoor unit is clean. If you see dirt buildup, shut it off and gently clean it with a lower pressure hose. Eliminate dust and dirt inside by cleaning your vents.
  • Periodically change your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump working efficiently. Make sure to change it every few months.

When your technician does get there, they’ll have a full list of their own to tackle. Here’s a few things your Speedy Air Conditioning expert will do when they arrive.

  • Thoroughly check your system. Your technician will check out a range of different aspects of your system—including your ducts, coil, blower, motor and more—for dust and dirt.
  • Clean your system. If they find buildup in your system, your technician will take care of it. They’ll also clean your coils and condensation pan.
  • Examine refrigerant. Your technician will take a look at your refrigerant level and refresh it if required.
  • Take a look at moving parts. Your system contains parts that need to work together nicely. If your technician finds problems, they’ll make sure to lubricate your system’s parts.
  • Check electrical connections. Your system is a complicated, electrical appliance. Make sure it’s safe with a visit from a Speedy Air Conditioning professional.

How Often Should I Have Maintenance Done on My Heat Pump?

We recommend bringing in a professional at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures start to change, it’s a great time for a system tune-up. After all, your system works year-round to keep you comfortable. All of that work can cause strain or even a breakdown, especially if left without maintenance.
