Heat Pump Maintenance
Heat pumps are excellent home comfort options, offering both heating and cooling. Without regular maintenance, your heat pump can quickly wear down. You’ll wind up needing frequent repairs and may even need to replace the system sooner, dramatically driving up the cost of year–round home comfort.
To keep your system running as intended for as long as possible, professional service should be scheduled annually. The Bergen County area heat pump maintenance technicians at DB Heating & Cooling have the tools and skills needed to service all types of heat pumps. We take pride in helping homeowners cut down on emergency repairs and sooner than necessary heat pump replacement.
Heat Pump Maintenance Services
Regular maintenance of your heat pump is designed to check for common problems. Often, dirty compressors and condenser coils will reduce the efficiency of the system, decreasing its ability to transfer heat or cooled air effectively into your home. Filters must also be checked regularly to remove any dirt or dust build up.
Some of these minor tasks can actually be performed by the homeowner. Replaceable filters can be changed and permanent filters can be vacuumed or sprayed off with a hose on a regular basis. However there are many parts of the system that should only be handled by a professional. They need to be carefully maintained by someone who knows how to turn off the electrical supply to the unit and remove and put back key components.
Maintenance goes beyond simply checking the heat pump for problems, however. A good maintenance plan will also take into account the common issues that arise when your heat pump is operational all year long. Your air handler and ductwork in particular are also put through the paces to keep your home comfortable.
We will check the ductwork during maintenance and perform a full inspection of your air handler to make sure it doesn’t need any upgrades or fixes as well. It’s common for problems to develop in any of these systems if they are neglected for extended periods of time; we can catch them during maintenance to reduce the likelihood of future problems.

If you don’t currently have a heat pump maintenance plan, it’s important that you call an expert to get one set up. The biggest single risk your heat pump faces is neglect. Heat pumps that are well maintained each year stand a much better chance of lasting years beyond their original estimated lifespan.
Poorly maintained heat pumps on the other hand might only last a few years before needing serious repairs or even replacement.
