Heat Pump Maintenance in Chelan and Wenatchee, Washington

Lennox maintenance
Heat pump maintenance in Chelan and Wenatchee, Washington, is important for keeping your system working efficiently throughout the seasons.

It’s the easiest approach to use less energy and avoid a pricey, inconvenient service call.

When you don’t have a semi-yearly service appointment, your heat pump can make you responsible for a bit in utility bills and home comfort. Studies have learned heat pumps that aren’t maintained operate roughly.

An especially overlooked outdoor unit can consume 10 to 25 percent more energy than a regularly serviced unit, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

You’ll notice that reflected on your energy costs monthly—and it won’t be inexpensive.

Tune-ups make your system more stable too. You could have trouble sneaking just under the surface. A pro tune-up can help take care of them before they become a more expensive fix.

There’s a high chance you’ll keep clear of service calls for routine problems like frost or continuous work. And that saves you time and money. Get in touch with the heating and cooling specialists at 509-284-4265 to book your appointment now.


How Regularly Should My Heat Pump Be Worked on?

We recommend bringing in a professional at least twice a year—once in the fall and once in the spring. When seasons begin to get warmer or colder, it’s the perfect time for heating and cooling service.

Your system runs year-round to keep your family comfortable. All of that effort can lead to stress or even a service call, especially if you don’t maintain it.

Heat Pump Maintenance List

Changing an air filter
You already understand service is important for an efficient, trustworthy heat pump. But what steps should you take to plan for your regular tune-up? Here are some DIY things to complete before your Lakeside Heating & Air expert visits:
  • Inspect your outdoor unit. Your heat pump needs to remain free year-round to keep your residence comfortable. Make sure there’s no waste on top of or near your equipment. You’ll need about two feet open encircling your system in each direction.
  • Spruce up your equipment. Make sure your outdoor unit is free of dirt. If you see dirt buildup, turn it off and slowly spray it with a decreased pressure hose. Remove pollutants inside your home by dusting your vents.
  • Periodically replace your your air filter. Your air filter keeps your air clean and your heat pump running as it should. Make sure to change it every several months.
