Your heat pump certainly is an ingenious piece of machinery. Not only does it capture outdoor warmth to keep your home cozy, but it also provides cool, comfortable air during the dog days of summer. Plus, heat pumps are far more efficient than the average furnace or air conditioner.

Just like other HVAC systems, though, heat pumps can’t go without regular maintenance. Want to ensure your heat pump is at its best when chilly weather rolls in? Call us at (206) 492-4215 for heat pump maintenance now.

Perks of Maintaining Your Heat Pump

Most people don’t give their heat pump much thought until something goes wrong. If that sounds like you, check out these benefits of regular heat pump maintenance:

  • Prevent costly repairs: Have you ever ignored an ache only for that throbbing pain to turn into a serious medical problem? If you’d only gotten a checkup sooner, you could have avoided surgery or medication. Your heat pump is much the same. With regular checkups, we can find little problems before they need expensive repairs.
  • Lower energy costs: Heat pumps cost less to operate than almost any other type of HVAC system, but if something goes wrong, your energy bills can shoot through the roof. Regular maintenance keeps those energy costs at a reasonable level.
  • Increase your heat pump’s lifespan: Did you know that with good maintenance, your heat pump can last for 20 years? Given the cost of a new system, this is one of the most compelling reasons to invest in annual maintenance.
  • Peace of mind: Thanks to regular maintenance, your heat pump will work properly when you need it most. Nothing’s better than knowing you have reliable heating and cooling when the weather turns frosty or scorching hot.

What Does Heat Pump Maintenance Include?

When you hire us for heat pump maintenance, we’ll perform a full checkup of your system from top to bottom. We will:

  • Inspect ductwork: You probably haven’t peeked inside your home’s ductwork in quite some time, and we don’t blame you. Ductwork can harbor cobwebs, dust bunnies, and even rodents. Yikes! We’ll check your ductwork for any problems that might reduce the efficiency of your heat pump.
  • Test the thermostat: If you’ve set your thermostat to 75 degrees but the temperature in your home is pushing 80, there may be a communication problem between the thermostat and the heat pump. We’ll test the thermostat for problems and recalibrate it if necessary.
  • Look for blockages: Dust, dirt, and plant foliage can block your heat pump’s blower, fans, and coils. We’ll eliminate debris, allowing your heat pump to work at full efficiency.
  • Check for refrigerant leaks: Normally, you never need to replace refrigerant, but you’ll need a refill if your system has a leak. If we spot coolant at the unit’s base, we’ll track down the leak and repair it before adding more refrigerant.

DIY Heat Pump Maintenance Tips

If you enjoy DIY projects, keeping your heat pump running smoothly with a bit of elbow grease is possible. To keep your heat pump in peak condition, follow these tips:

  • Clear weeds, leaves, and fallen tree branches away from the outdoor unit. Such debris can clog the unit and cause it to stop working.
  • Change or clean the air filters when they look dirty. Some air filters require changing monthly, while others can last up to six months. Ice can form on the unit’s coils if you forgo changing the filter.
  • Give the unit’s fan an occasional cleaning. Be sure to turn off the power to the unit before you do this.
  • Straighten the unit’s metal fins if they’re bent. You can handle this task with a fin comb, which is available at any HVAC supply store.

What your community is saying about Us

  • Alexa C

    Amazing service! We had air conditioning installed in our home – after giving me a very reasonable estimate, they had us scheduled within a couple days. They showed up on time, worked hard, very professional and kind.

  • Sara F

    I just bought a home and had Simply Efficient take a look at my heating and cooling system. The entire process from setting up the appointment with Esther through to the maintenance visit with Vlad was seamless and easy!

  • Pavlo D

    Simple and Efficient has exceeded our expectations in every way. Their team of professionals installed our AC system quickly and with the utmost quality. David, the CEO, provided expert guidance, and their receptionist was consistently professional and helpful.

  • Manoj S

    Terrific team and amazing customer service! I found Simply Efficient through Thumbtack last year when I was exploring heat pumps. Over the last year or so, their support has been phenomenal and I guess “simply efficient”. The team goes above and beyond in everything they do; and Esther has been on top of her game every time I call them. Keep up the good work!

  • Tomas I

    Vlad and Alex did a great job replacing my old busted heat pump. Their quote came in well below the competing quotes I got. I have a fairly complicated 3-zone system with both heat pump and gas furnace and I really appreciated how they recommended which components that still were good and which to replace.

  • Junpeng X

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Simply Efficient Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC for the installation of a Mitsubishi HyperHeat 2 Ton Variable Speed Heat Pump in my home in Kirkland, WA. From the beginning to the end of the process, my experience was nothing short of exceptional, thanks to the professionalism, responsiveness, and expertise of Alex, Max, and Oleh.

  • Kathy A

    From start to finish Simply Efficient was excellent! I found them through Thumbtack and they quickly scheduled me for my in home walk-through and estimate. Dmitriy was fantastic and listened to my wishes, priorities, and answered my endless questions 🙂

  • Yinglan S

    I am extremely satisfied with the service provided by Simply efficient heating and conditioning. David, the owner, and his team did an outstanding job.
