Maintaining Your Heat Pump for Year-Round Performance

Your home’s HVAC system relies on several parts that work together to control temperatures inside your home and remove excess moisture from the air. According to the United States Department of Energy, you can expect your home’s HVAC system to last between 15 and 20 years. Some of the parts, however, may not last as long. Heat pumps, for example, have an expected lifespan of 10 to 15 years. This operating lifespan means you need to make sure you regularly maintain your HVAC system to keep each part of the system in top operating condition.

The infographic below, originally published by, offers useful information for homeowners like you who have heat pumps. Learn ways you can extend the life of your heat pump through regular maintenance of the unit. Some simple maintenance techniques you can do include clearing away plant material growing within 18 inches of your outdoor unit and cleaning your system’s air filters at least once a month.

You should also have an HVAC services professional in your area inspect your HVAC system once each year. A technician can perform services that will extend the life of your heat pump and the parts of the unit. In many cases, your services technician can also spot problems in early stages. Having worn-out parts replaced now is often less expensive than replacing these parts after they break. Keep your heat pump in proper working order so that the system can reliably keep you comfortable in your home throughout the year.
