Taking Proper Care of Your Heat Pump
Just like anything else, a heat pump will require maintenance from time to time. Typically, this is performed once a year, preferably in the fall to ensure no outages during winter months. There are several guidelines that our technicians follow to inspect and clean components of your heat pump. To give you an idea of this process, here are just a few of the highlights:
- Cleaning or replacing the filter
- Inspection of wires and connections, replacing any damaged wires and tightening connections
- Lubricating the blower motor or bearings
- Inspection of the base-pan in the condensing unit, including checking the drain holes and removing any debris
- Oil and inspect the condensing fan motor
- Other points of inspection can include the thermostat, measuring the suction line pressure, running a defrost cycle, verifying the status of supplemental heat, and inspecting ductwork
The Technology Behind Heat Pumps
Plenty of people know that they have a heat pump and that it provides warmth during colder months. However, sometimes it is helpful to have a bit of a deeper understanding. To explain a heat pump simply, these systems use renewable heat in the surrounding areas to help heat (or cool) your home. Even in weather that feels cold to you, there is still a certain amount of heat in the air, ground, and water. This heat is constantly renewed by the sun. By applying a bit more energy to the heat, the heat pump can raise the temperature to desired levels.
Fun fact: Using direct combustion is never the best or most efficient use of fuel (oil or gas).
