Maintenance improves energy efficiency by as much as 25%.* It can also lower
operating costs, save time on repairs and enable your heat pump to last longer.
Check at the Beginning of Each Season & Always Schedule an Annual Tune-Up!
- Lubricate mechanical components to reduce friction and resistance, preventing wear and improving efficiency.
- Clear obstructions from the condensate drain and repair any cracks or leaks.
- Test heat pump controls to verify proper startup and shutdown, while listening for problematic noise or vibration.
- Check the air filter for dirt and replace, if necessary, to prevent strain on the compressor and components.
- Clean the condenser coil and fan while checking for stability, amp draw and vibrations.
- Inspect belts, pulleys and other components for alignment issues.
- To ensure the motor is drawing proper amperage, check blower wheels and motors for restricted airflow.
- Measure refrigerant levels and recharge the unit, if necessary.
- Clean or change the air filter as recommended or at least once a month, if more frequently used.
