Heat Pump Maintenance

To keep your heat pump in optimum working condition, manufacturers recommend that your heat pump is serviced every 3-6 months.

A heat pump that is regularly maintained uses between 10-35% less energy than a non-serviced heat pump, saving you money on your monthly power bill.

Regular maintenance will also make your unit last longer, is better for your health and will help to avoid costly repairs in the future.

How regularly does my heat pump need maintenance?

This depends on the type of unit you have, the size of the space and how frequently you use your heat pump. To find out the recommended service period for your unit, talk to one of our qualified heat pump technicians.
