There are maintenance tasks that you as a homeowner can and should do. Your seasonal heat pump maintenance checklist should include the following:

  • Check your air filter. Keeping this component clean is important, as it is your system’s first line of defense against dirt build-up. When you start to use your A/C or furnace on a regular basis, check the filter every month and change it as needed.
  • Clean the coils. The outdoor unit’s coils are prone to dirt build-up due to climate factors. You can clean them by gently spraying them with a garden hose or carefully wiping them with a soft cloth.
  • Clear the area. Plants and leaves tend to gather around the outdoor unit, which can block air flow into the system, and it will lead to dirtier coils, too.
