As we head towards the warmer months, it's time to think about heat pump / air conditioner maintenance.

Over time, a significant volume of dust accumulates on the filter. If left uncleaned, the build-up can clog the indoor unit and reduce air flow, diminishing the efficient performance of the heat pump / air conditioner.

Here are our top 6 tips:

  1. Clean the dust on the filter* using a vacuum cleaner, or wash the filter with mild detergent and warm water. Allow to dry thoroughly before replacing

  2. Keep the outdoor unit free from debris and obstructions which restrict airflow and cause the compressor to work harder

  3. Clean the indoor unit grilles by gently vacuuming along the grooves or wiping with a damp cloth

  4. Have the heat pump / air conditioner professionally serviced by a licensed heat pump / air conditioning technician every one to two years depending on use

  5. Use built in programmers and features for efficient operation like the clever human sensor feature which automatically switches to energy saving mode when no movement is detected within the room for 20 minutes

  6. Don’t be tempted to set the temperature too low as this will not cool the home faster, and can put pressure on the system

*Refer to the manufacturer’s operating manual on how to access and remove the filter from the indoor unit.
