Heat Pump Cleaning
Why a heat pump is essential for your home
If you live in a cold climate, you know how essential a furnace is for your home. But what about a heat pump? A heat pump provides both heating and cooling to your home, making it an essential part of your HVAC system. Here are two reasons why a heat pump is essential for your home.
- Heat pumps are some of the most energy-efficient machines on the market. They can cover large areas and transfer heat without losing a great deal of energy, keeping utility bills low and homes comfortable in the process.
- You can also adjust the temperature with a single touch, reducing energy consumption and costs.
How often should I get my unit cleaned?
What are signs that my unit should be cleaned?
We recommend the inspection of the condensing coil during your annual air duct cleaning service.
We use advanced cleaning tools, enabling us to efficiently clean these pieces of equipment.
One of the best things about well maintained heat pumps is that they last for a long time. It’s tough to get an exact number, but on average you can expect your heat pump to serve you well for around 20-25 years.
- When you see mildew or mold on this condensing unit.
- When you have weeds or other plant life growing in or around the unit.
- Leaves and branches may fall or land on these units, causing them to become blocked and reduce the efficiency of the unit causing you to spend more money on your heating bill.
What if I have a smaller home?
We understand that not everyone lives in an aesthetically pleasing home, so we wanted to clarify how the heat pump stands to affect other parts of your home. The heat pump works no louder than a household refrigerator and can fit into any cramped space in your living room or kitchen. Placing it on a wooden or metal base will allow the machine to breathe better and run quieter, but even then, the noise shouldn’t be unbearable.
Heat pumps can save you a lot of money on your energy bills, but they might not be the right choice for you in all situations. That’s why our experts will help you evaluate your finances and make a decision that’s best for you. Our team will assess your current energy usage and average costs, compare them with local energy providers and make calculations to find the optimal solution for your home or business.
You may not be thinking of your heat pump condenser coils as part of your spring cleaning tasks – we recommend adding them to the list.
How does a heat pump work?
If you have a central air conditioning system, you have two main parts:
- the indoor air handler (evaporator coils); and
- the outdoor heat pump (condenser coils).
The heat pump utilizes a fan to release heat absorbed by the refrigerant. When the fan is on, air flows into your coils/fins, pulling dirt and debris in as well. When grass clippings, “cotton,” dirt, leaves, and other debris gather on the coils, airflow, and energy efficiency are significantly reduced.
