How to Know If Your Heat Pump Needs a Tune-Up

Posted on: March 13, 2017

Keeping your heat pump well maintained is an important part of ensuring the efficiency of your system. Yet, for many Ventura County homeowners, it’s not easy to tell when a system is due for maintenance. At Aladdin Air Conditioning & Heating, we recommend a system tune-up at the beginning of the heating and cooling season. In addition to this particular timeline, there are certain things to look for that indicate it’s time for a system tune-up. If you suspect that it’s time for a tune-up, here’s what you need to look for:

1. Your System Seems Inefficient

One of the most important benefits of routine system maintenance is efficiency. If your system seems to be running inefficiently, then it may be time for a tune-up. At your tune-up appointment, the Aladdin team will adjust all of the different components of your heat pump to ensure they are working as efficiently as possible. We’ll clean the filter, top off refrigerant, and test all of the lines and connections for problems that could be driving up your heating and cooling bills.

2. Your Indoor Air Quality Is Suffering

Is your family suffering from an increase in respiratory and allergy symptoms? If so, then indoor air quality may be to blame, and this means that a system tune-up is in order. At your tune-up, we will clean your heat pump inside and out, removing some of the debris that could be re-circulating through your home. We’ll also clean or replace the air filter, so it will better trap allergens and keep them from entering your home.

3. Your System’s Making Unusual Noises

Finally, if your system is making unusual or unexpected noises, then consider scheduling a tune-up. Unusual heat pump noises can indicate something in the system is loose, and if left unattended this can lead to a system breakdown. We will check for loose connections and tighten them, while putting a stop to the noise and reducing the risk of a breakdown.
