How To Clean Your Heat Pump

Your heat pump can become clogged by outside debris like pollen, leaves, and during the winter by snow and ice. If the coils of your system become dirty, or obstructed by debris, snow or ice then your heat pump is going to work inefficiently and you will notice poorer performance. Cleaning steps:

  1. 1. First step turn off the power to the system, and double check the the fans are not moving.
  2. 2. Make sure the area around your heat pump is clear, that there isn't snow/ice, leaves or other debris obstructing access to the system.
  3. 3. Next, using a screwdriver remove the outer covering of your heat pump. Place the cover safely out of the way and use a vacuum or brush to clean out any dirt, pollen or debris in the system.
  4. 4. Then lift up the top grill of the heat pump which is attached to the fan. Use a bucket of soapy water or a garden hose and some soap to gently clean the condenser coil and the fins. Be careful not to bend or damage the fins, if you would like professional help with this step call our team.

Our maintenance and tune-up checklist will vary slightly based on your systems age, condition and level of maintenance. But it will be similar to the following - schedule a tune up with our team at least once a year to make the most out of your system:

  • Check the system for any obstructions
  • Check the ducts for leakage and diagnose
  • Check the system to make sure the airflow is proper and the pump as the right refrigerant charge

  • Diligently check the motor and belts, lubricate and clean them as necessary
