Heat Pump Maintenance

Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglected one ranges from 10% to 25%.

Most manufacturers recommend an annual maintenance check from a qualified technical for warranty purposes. At Bens, our standard heat pump maintenance includes:

  • Inspection of ducts, filters, blower, and indoor coil for dirt and other obstructions
  • Diagnosis and sealing of any duct leakage
  • Verification of adequate airflow by measurement
  • Verification and  correction of refrigerant charge by measurement
  • Check for refrigerant leaks
  • Inspection of electric terminals, and, if necessary, cleaning and tightening of connections, and application nonconductive coating
  • Lubrication of motors, and inspect belts for tightness and wear
  • Verification of correct electric control, making sure that heating is locked out when the thermostat calls for cooling and vice versa
  • Verification and correction of thermostat operation.
