3 Tips to Keep Your Heat Pump Running All Year
Thursday, May 19, 2016

Daily use and the changing of the seasons can take a toll on your heating and cooling system, but the right safety and prevention steps can help prevent breakdowns. What you need are three tips to help keep your heat pump running year-round. So here they are:

Tip #1: Stay on Top of the Filter Situation

The air filter on your heating and air conditioning system is critical to keeping it running right, no matter what kind of system you have. When it comes to your heat pump, a dirty filter will make your heat pump work harder to push the air through which can cause extra wear and tear, potentially shortening the life of your system and causing breakdowns. It will also decrease the energy efficiency of the heat pump.

Tip #2: Keep the Vegetation in Check

The outdoor component of your heat pump will be affected by vegetation overgrowth. If leaves, grasses, bushes, or shrubbery start to move into the space your heat pump occupies, it can lead to a clogged fan and other issues, especially if it starts to compromise the way the heat pump is functioning. Clear any vegetation away from the system components to make sure it doesn’t affect proper function.

Tip #3: Make Sure It’s Getting Regular Maintenance

One of the best ways to keep your heat pump humming along throughout the year is regular maintenance. Although you can do some of the basics yourself, when a certified HVAC technician checks, cleans, adjusts, and maintains your heat pump, they’re able to ensure there are no leaks, issues with the motor, belts, or other moving parts, the thermostat, or the electrical.

If you take care of your heat pump, it will take care of you all year. For more information on safety and prevention to keep your HVAC system running as it should, contact the pros at All City Heat & Air.

All City Heat and Air came out and installed a new system for me 2 years ago. We have had maintenance contracts on the system since then. Their professionalism is what stands out to me about them. It's under a service contract so it's covered by the contract. They come out every 6 months and the price covers the life of the contract.


I would recommend family and friends to very definitely consider them, and I will use them again. They are certainly very responsive, and they have been very willing to work with me. I live in Florida, but the house is in Charlotte so they have worked through some scheduling issues and some other issues with me that have been mutually satisfactory.
