Heat Pump Maintenance Tip
Your heat pump needs to have its filters changed once a month to continue to function efficiently. If you are not sure how to change the filter, you should ask your HVAC technician during your annual maintenance visit. You should also ask how to keep your coils and fans clean; if they are dirty the reduced airflow can decrease your heat pump’s efficiency and damage the compressor. Completing these few simple tasks can help your whole system work better and last longer!
DID YOU KNOW?
9 out of 10 HVAC system failures are caused by dirt and dust according to a study conducted by the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service.
It’s easy to forget or neglect our heating and air conditioning system. Usually, the indoor and outdoor components are out of normal every day sight, when we adjust the thermostat – the system responds and many homeowners understandably take for granted that it simply works like any other appliance and needs no up keep.
However, your heating and air conditioning system does need annual preventive maintenance by a certified HVAC company to keep the system operating at peak efficiency to reduce energy usage and save you money. In addition, safety controls and fuel supply, poisonous combustion discharge functions and electrical connections need to be thoroughly checked and inspected to ensure safe operation.
Manufacturer, utility company, university and government studies have all concluded that proper maintenance conducted on an annual basis is essential to reducing equipment failure that results in expensive repairs in addition to minimizing energy usage and energy expenditures.
Another Interesting Heating Fact
On average, in Bucks and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania, the average heating and air conditioning system runs for approximately 2,000 hours per year. If you drove your car 45 miles per hour for 2,000 hours, you would drive 90,000 miles. Would you drive 90,000 miles without proper maintenance?
For every 10 minutes a gas furnace operates it unleashes the same energy as 3–1/2 sticks of dynamite. You wouldn’t want to operate such an "explosive" device without ensuring its safe operation annually would you? Don’t you think maintenance is critical for such equipment?
Our expert HVAC technicians are all E.P.A. certified and are experienced in performing thorough preventive maintenance on all makes and models of heating systems. They’ll make sure that your heater is functioning properly, that it’s running at peak efficiency and – when necessary – recommend preventive steps to ensure continued reliable heater operation. It doesn’t matter if your system is old or new, if you are looking for routine maintenance or if you’re in need of a major heater repair; Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling is here to help.

24 problems cause 99% of heating system failures, and 16 of them can be prevented with proper maintenance.
A buildup of just one 100TH of an inch of dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%, and 0.042 inches of dirt can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21% (United States Environmental Protection Agency).
A dirty evaporator coil, condenser coil or blower could increase air conditioning or heat pump electrical usage by 50% or more.
A blower wheel with lint and dust provides 15–20% less air. The result is lower efficiency. A dirty blower wheel usually indicates a dirty evaporator coil. Clean systems restore capacity and lessen run time, thereby reducing operating costs and extending system life span (Louisiana State University).
Louisiana State University and Gulf States Utility study of five existing houses before (HVAC system) cleaning and after cleaning resulted in average savings of $32.76 per month (based on $0.08 per kWh) on cooling bills. In addition, 9,250 BTU’s per hour or 0.79 tons of capacity was restored and the units ran 1.7 hours less per day.
Pacific Gas & Electric found the average heating energy savings for locating and repairing refrigerant leaks and correcting refrigerant charge was 18.4% (heat pump systems).
A Texas A&M University study found that a 23% refrigerant undercharge could result in a 52% efficiency loss.
