Heat Pump Maintenance Tips: Increase the life of your Heat Pump

Regularly cleaning and replacing any worn components on your heat pump can keep your system running smoothly, boost its energy efficiency and reduce your monthly electricity bills.

At Australian Energy Systems we recommend having your heat pump serviced by an authorised technician at least once a year, twice a year if you’re near the beach with salt in the air or in an area with a lot of construction. This Heat Pump Maintenance will extend its lifespan and ensure your unit runs efficiently.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Here are a few things you can do in between visits from a qualified technician to maintain your heat pump:

  • Check the unit for any presence of geckos, spiders and ants and lightly spray lid covers with surface spray if required.
  • Clean the area around the heat pump to prevent any debris from interfering with the unit.
  • Check the unit is level.
  • Clean external casing with cleaner – using a soft brush and then gently hosing down.
  • Drying the unit with a blower.
  • Backwashing your pool filters on a regular basis.
  • Spraying the metal parts on the units with an anti-corrosion spray if you notice any signs of rust or corrosion.

Regular servicing will ensure that all components, such as coils, filters and fan motors are working properly.

An Australian Energy Systems technician can identify any potential problems and take action to prevent them from becoming more serious and avoid costly repairs, we will perform a more thorough inspection & maintenance program on your heat pump including…

  • Check and repair wall fittings and supporting plumbing between the unit and the pool.
  • Clean the coils with coil cleaner.
  • Check the drain for good flow and replace the hose if required.
  • Apply anti-corrosion inhibitor to coils.
  • If metal case unit- apply anti-corrosion to all metal surfaces excluding coils.
  • Turn on and test the unit.
