Check to See if You Need a Heat Pump Tune-up

How a heat pump tune up keeps your home comfortable and functional:

Easiest fix for energy efficiency is as simple as a heat pump tune up. Up to 50% of your home’s energy bill is from your heating and cooling system. If it’s not running correctly, you’re losing money to the power company and needlessly draining energy resources.

  • Energy savings: Properly maintained heat pump reduces your electric bill.
  • Increased system life: The number one reason for system failure is surprisingly simply dirt clogging important parts. A heat pump tune up causes your unit to last longer, so you won’t have to replace an entire unit prematurely.
  • Correct health risks: Freshly replaced air filters catch dust, dander, bacteria, and particles.
  • Peace of mind: Our highly trained and through technicians keep the temperature in your home comfortable for you and your family throughout the year.

  1. thermostat

  2. evaporator coil
  3. Install chlorine tablet
  4. return air grid/ cover, check seal

What happens when you don’t get a heat pump tune up???


Mostly, heat pumps will give warning signs of an impending emergency breakdown, but we either don’t notice or we dismiss it, instead of calling someone out to take a look. For example, let’s say your unit has been running fine for years and has never needed any work. But, sometimes it’s really loud or you have to turn the unit off and on for it to work. Here’s what else could happen if you don’t get a heat pump tune up:


  • Unplanned breakdowns from improper maintenance, just like your car.
  • Condenser coils get clogged with dust, dirt, pollen, and other debris. When that happens, the condenser coil loses its ability to pull air from the unit. Then, the compressor has to work hard causing a higher electric bill.
  • Dirty filters can cause the evaporator coil to starve for air. Each evaporator coil is designed for a specific volume of air to ensure adequate operation.
  • Lack of professional maintenance on your cooling system can mean failure of the unit’s compressor, condenser fan, and other system components. A malfunction of a single component will overwork your unit. To illustrate this point, 80% of all compressor failures could have been avoided if a proper maintenance had been performed.
  • Prematurely replacing the entire unit or system.
  • Increasing your utility bills by 35%.
  • If you have to add refrigerant to your heat pump system that means you have a leak, which damages the environment and costs you money.
