Maintaining Cold Climate Heat Pumps (Video)

Brett Rogenski of N.E.T.R., Inc. talks about how to maintain cold climate heat pumps, and why getting maintenance done twice a year is important for keeping your system running efficiently.

Hi, I’m Brett with N.E.T.R. — I wanted to explain to you why a heat pump, which is used for both heating and cooling your home, should be serviced twice a year.

If you were to think about a traditional heating and cooling system, there are two systems: an air conditioning system, which you would service in the spring before the hot months, and a furnace, which you would service in the fall before the winter months.

Your heat pump is actually doing the job of both of those systems. It’s important that we clean it and maintain it both before the heating season and before the cooling season. Please make sure that if you’re using your heat pump to both heat and cool your home, that you have a qualified contractor clean it twice a year.
