Get Your Heat Pump Working Again
Preventative maintenance means regular inspection of the entire heating pump unit, checking that each part is in good condition and has the appropriate amount of lubrication.
Keeping your electric heat pump clean and in good repair can:
Reduce wear and tear on the components, giving the unit longer life
Increase your energy savings
Reduce expensive breakdowns, saving time and money
Making sure the coils in the heat pump are in good condition
Heat pumps have two coils that keep the unit operations, and if you wish to avoid heat pump repair, then regular cleaning of these is the key. The outside coil, the larger one, is exposed to the elements year-round, and as dirt and debris accumulate on it, it can make the coil-less efficient.
The inside coil, the smaller one, can also be subject to debris build-up, from pet dander and normal household dust. Or, condensation from the unit can cause mold spores to grow. Keeping the coils clean and in good repair and making sure that the air filter is changed regularly can help reduce sudden emergencies.

Choose the Right Heat Pump Specialist Near You!
A homeowner's responsibility is having a professional tech complete the heat pump installation. Once they've installed the unit, you may be asked to schedule regular service to keep the unit running smoothly. While the maintenance services can vary among contractors, a good HVAC contractor will complete many of these basics:
Make sure all electrical connections are secure
Inspect components to ensure they're working properly
Check for refrigerant leaks and make sure all fluid levels are filled
Check refrigerant charges
Inspect the run capacitor and look for any worn parts
Clean the indoor and outdoor coils
Test the defrost cycle
Inspect the auxiliary heating system
Replace the air filter if needed
Once the inspection is complete, your HVAC contractor may have a list of repairs, many of which may be small. Without looking for small issues, you may find yourself with an electric heat pump that completely breaks down, meaning an emergency heat pump repair, which can be both expensive and inconvenient.
