Before we can provide a recommendation, there is a lot to consider, such as:
- Age of the System
- Quality of the System Installation When it Was New
- Cost of the Repair & the Repair History
- The Maintenance History
- And, System Performance (Efficiency)
After our service technician has had a chance to thoroughly diagnose your heat pump system, they will be able to make recommendations. Just ask!
#1. Schedule Maintenance Every 6 Months:
Lack of maintenance is one of the top reasons heat pump systems breakdown or fail early. In Arizona, this is especially important. Since a heat pump does double duty to heat and cool your home it will run 1000’s of hours in a year.
Semi-annual inspections, tune-ups and cleanings are required to help reduce breakdowns, and keeping your heat pump system properly maintained will also help improve efficiency for improved comfort and lower energy costs.

#2. Replace Dirty Filters:
Dirty filters make your system work harder and longer to keep your home cool. The dirtier it is, the more resistance your heat pump system will have to work against. This causes extra strain on your system and can lead to breakdowns (and in some cases, system failure).
#3. Give Your System Adequate Air Flow:
Similar to a dirty filter, your system needs adequate air flow to operate properly. Trim the foliage around your outdoor unit back by at least 12-18 inches and remove any debris from around the to allow for adequate airflow.
