Heat Pump Maintenance Tips to Improve Performance
Heat pumps function year-round and don't take seasons off like air conditioners and furnaces, so heat pump maintenance is critical to protecting the performance, efficiency, and service of your unit. Cleaning or changing the air filter is one of easiest and most cost-effective ways to keep your heat pump in good working order. If you’re like most Americans and use your heat pump on a regular basis, you may need to clean or change the filter about once a month. However, if you only use your system periodically, you can safely change it every three months.
Below are a few other basic heat pump maintenance tips homeowners can use to keep a heat pump system running smoothly. Keep in mind that in addition to these home maintenance tips, you should also schedule a comprehensive annual maintenance checkup with your local American Standard Customer Care dealer.
