Performing Your Own Heat Pump Maintenance

It’s important to have yearly or twice-yearly professional maintenance conducted on your ductless heat pump. This ensures your system is running properly, and our skilled technicians can dive deeper into the heat pump’s operation than you can on your own.

However, in between maintenance service visits, there are steps you can take to help resolve minor issues and keep your heat pump operating smoothly:

  • Clean your air filters every one or two months by removing the filters and using the brush attachment on your vacuum to sweep up any dirt, dust, or debris.
  • Check your outdoor unit for debris, such as branches, leaves, or dirt, and brush away or remove as necessary.
  • If you live near the coast, wash the outdoor unit every couple of months to rinse away built-up saltwater deposits.

Signs You May Need Additional Service Repairs

Another way to help ensure your heat pump system works as it should is to notice signs of repair and reach out to us promptly to schedule a service plan. As stated above, subscribing to one of our maintenance plans benefits you greatly with this as you’ll receive priority scheduling and a 15% discount off needed repairs.

So, make sure to reach out to us if you notice any of these potential issues:

  • The heat pump system won’t start
  • The display says the system is operating, but you don’t feel any air coming out of the indoor unit.
  • The airflow is not as strong as it once was.
  • Everything seems to be working as it should, but you can’t get your home or business to a comfortable temperature.
  • Either the indoor unit or the system’s remote control is displaying an error code.

However, even these signs may not mean you need to call a service technician to assess the issue. You may, in fact, be able to rectify the situation by performing some basic troubleshooting:

  • Perform a hard reset by turning the system off via the remote then flipping off the breaker panel for the system for at least ten minutes. Then flip the breaker back on and power on the unit. It should take around 20 minutes for the system to recalibrate.
  • Check the fuse box and replace any malfunctioning fuses connected to the heat pump.
  • Replace the batteries in your heat pump remote.
  • As mentioned above, it’s essential to clean the air filters of the indoor unit at least once or twice a month using your vacuum’s brush attachment. If you have pets or small children, you should aim to do it every month.
