How Heat Pumps Work
Serviced Heat Pumps Are More Efficient
Your heat pump is the same. All the pollen, dirt and dust trapped inside your heat pump is acting like a hand over the neck of your vacuum cleaner. It’s still working, but it’s not heating or cooling your home as efficiently as what it should. Working harder to do the same job means your heat pump is using more electricity, which really adds up over time.
Servicing your heat pump once a year can increase its efficiency by up to 40%. You can also give your heat pump a quick clean yourself if you're feeling confident. Being more energy efficient means your heat pump can keep your Christchurch home warmer, for cheaper.
Serviced Heat Pumps Are Safer
Keep Your Warranty
The Heat Pumps NOW team are often surprised when we take a look in an outdoor heat pump during a routine service. Sometimes they’re filled with moss and mould, other times dust and dried leaves manage to find their way inside.
The record number of animals Heat Pumps NOW has found inside a Christchurch outdoor heat pump unit is four little mice. They were wrapped around a live power cable clearly trying to keep warm. It wouldn’t take much for that to turn disastrous!
If Heat Pumps NOW hadn’t picked up that risk during our annual heat pump clean and service, there’s a good chance that outdoor unit could have short-circuited and caught fire!
That's in addition to the internal damage caused by moss, mould, mildew, dead leaves and other foliage could have caused to your outdoor heat pump unit.
