Heat Pump Manufacturers recommend the units in your home have a full service carried out on an annual basis.
Commercial Air Conditioning systems are recommended to have a full service every three to six months; these units are typically used on a daily basis, however, the frequency depends on the operational environment, and how much dirt and dust may build up in the unit.
We are IQP registered so we can set up a contract to inspect, test and maintain your units and mechanical ventilation for your building warrant of fitness (12A).
For a Domestic unit it is suggested that the filters are cleaned approximately every three months. This can be easily done by the owner, or for those that are unable to for any reason, we do offer to clean the filters for you.
A full service on the indoor unit involves:
Cleaning and disinfecting the unit to prevent bacteria build up on the coil and throughout the unit
Cleaning the filters, vanes and outer covers
Check the condensate drain and flushing with disinfectant
Check electrical terminals and components
Check evaporator coils
Check fan blades for mould
Running the unit in both heating and cooling mode to check air temperatures
A full service on the outdoor unit includes:
Check for obstructions in and around the unit, coil, drain and electronics to improve efficiency and performance
Check flare joints and fittings
Check electrical terminals for tightness
Check refrigerant gas levels are satisfactory
Clean the outside of the casing

You’ll love the attention we can give your heat pump, but best of all your heat pump will love you for it. If you service your heat pump regularly it will last longer, run more efficiently. Did you know that servicing your heat pump, nearly doubles its efficiency saving you nearly half on your heat pump energy bill?

So in summary here is why you regularly service and clean a heat pump:
- The heat pump will last longer

We recommended servicing your heat pump either yearly or when you notice it starts blowing colder air than you expect.
Hopefully we will see you soon.
