To make this information more accessible, we have compiled some of the more common questions below.
How often should a heat pump be serviced?
An annual service before winter is recommended for residential units, while commercial heat pumps should be serviced every six months or three months, depending on their usage.
Why is it necessary to have a heat pump serviced?
Routine maintenance is crucial to maintain the optimal performance and cost-effectiveness of your heating and cooling system.
Regular servicing offers several advantages, including extending the lifespan of your heat pump. As with any motorized device, frequent maintenance is necessary to maintain optimal functionality. Inefficient heat pumps consume more energy, generating higher heating and cooling expenses. A regular service also provides health benefits by ensuring filters are removing bacteria and odours from the air, creating a healthier home environment. Furthermore, a well-maintained heat pump ensures maximum comfort, while an inefficient one can negatively impact your home's temperature and overall comfort.
Will a regular service improve the efficiency of a heat pump?
Yes, a regular service can improve the efficiency of a heat pump. A qualified technician can clean the filters, check the refrigerant levels, inspect and lubricate moving parts, and perform any necessary repairs during a service. By doing so, the heat pump can operate at peak efficiency, lowering energy consumption and reducing heating and cooling bills.
