Common checks and services include:

- Confirming there’s adequate airflow to the heat pump
- Inspecting electric terminals and cleaning and tightening electrical connections
- Checking for proper sequencing in the defrost cycle
- Lubricating motors

FAQs About Heat Pumps
What size heat pump do I need for my home?
Installing a too-small or too-large heat pump can waste money. A too-small heat pump can struggle to heat and cool a home, driving up utility bills. A too-large heat pump produces more energy than you need, wasting energy and reducing efficiency.
The most straightforward formula some people use is estimating one ton of air conditioning capacity for every 500 square feet in the home. Consulting with a professional HVAC contractor ensures you get the right size heat pump for your needs.
Can a heat pump work with existing ductwork?
Yes, in most cases, your home’s existing ductwork will work with a new heat pump system, keeping costs down and reducing the time involved.
How often should I schedule heat pump maintenance?
Experts recommend scheduling heat pump maintenance with a professional HVAC contractor at least once a year, or twice if it’s your primary heating and cooling system. As with traditional systems, it’s best to schedule services in the spring and fall.
