Signs You Need Heat Pump Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is an easy way to avoid problems with your heat pump, and here are a few signs that your system is due for a service visit:

  • Your utility costs are going up: As clogged air filters, dirty coils, and increased friction make your heat pump work harder to keep your home comfortable, your utility costs will rise.
  • Your coils are freezing up: Excessive dirt and grime can make it harder for your heat pump to transfer heat, allowing the coils to freeze.
  • Auxiliary heat is on too often: If your heat pump is in defrost mode or the auxiliary heat is on too often in the winter, dirty coils may prevent the heat pump from absorbing enough heat to keep your home comfortable.
  • Poor airflow: Clogged air filters or blocked air ducts can slow down airflow in the system and cause malfunctions.
  • Strange noises: Abnormal noises like tapping could indicate a worn belt, while squeaking may indicate a lack of lubrication. Clicking could show problems with a relay or contactor.

Our team at MHC Air Services can handle all the maintenance needs for your heat pump, and if we find any broken parts like a faulty contactor, a damaged belt, or a defective reversing valve, we will recommend the best heat pump repairs for your budget. In cases where a major part has failed, like a coil or the compressor, we may recommend a heat pump replacement if it is the more cost-effective solution.

Heat Pump Maintenance FAQs

What happens if you don’t clean your heat pump?

If it’s not cleaned often enough, dirt and debris can build up on the coils and make your heat pump work less efficiently, increasing your utility costs. In the worst-case scenario, the waste could trap moisture, causing the coils to corrode, or the inefficient heat transfer could allow the compressor to overheat and fail, a costly repair.

How many years does a heat pump last?

Most heat pumps will last 12 to 15 years with proper maintenance. You can maximize your system’s service life by changing the air filter often, staying current with routine maintenance, and repairing any problems as soon as we find them.

How often should heat pump filters be cleaned?

Reusable filters should be cleaned at least once every three months. Replaceable fiberglass filters should be swapped out every three months or so, and high-efficiency filters should be replaced every six months to a year, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. At MHC Air Services, we recommend checking your air filter once a month and cleaning it or replacing it whenever it’s visibly dirty or clogged.
