Why Is Mitsubishi Heat Pump Maintenance So Essential?

Everyone will notice when the heat pump stops working! But why wait until crunch time before paying attention to your Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance?

A regular maintenance routine will keep your heat pump in top working order, but there are additional benefits to the ongoing care of this equipment.

Read on to find out why Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance is so essential.

Prolonging The Life Of Your Heat Pump

Would you drive your car for years and years without ever taking it in for servicing? The answer would be “No”. The same principle applies to all the equipment you have spent good money on. To ensure that your heat pump keeps operating at its peak performance for years and years to come, it is vital to set up a regular maintenance schedule.

So, don’t wait until it breaks down before getting help – by adopting routine maintenance practices, you will always have the right temperature environment and can prevent damage to your heat pump system by keeping all the parts working smoothly.

Operational Efficiency Saves Electricity

As with most machinery and equipment, when your Mitsubishi heat pump receives regular maintenance, it can operate the most efficiently. This efficient operation takes less energy, so your electricity consumption will be lower over time.

Creating A Healthy Environment All The Time

Regular maintenance of your Mitsubishi heat pump will ensure that all the coils, filters and blades are kept clean. This goes a long way to ensuring that the air entering your home or office is clean and fresh. Clean filters work the best to effectively remove odours, dust, pollen and other undesirable particles and allergens.

DIY Or Call In The Professionals For Mitsubishi Heat Pump Maintenance?

Cleaning and servicing are two different things. You can do the cleaning part yourself, by keeping the unit spotless, including the grills and louvres. By following the instruction manual or the advice of your heat pump technician, you will also be able to keep your filters clean.

However, Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance also requires regular servicing by a qualified technician. The types of things that will be done during servicing will include cleaning and disinfecting coils, drains and pumps. Also, the level of refrigerant gas, noise levels, temperature setting and the system’s overall health will be checked. They will then advise on and carry out any necessary repairs or adjustments.

How Often Should You Schedule Mitsubishi Heat Pump Maintenance?

Saving energy used to be all about costs but nowadays it’s about ethics first and costs second. With ethics, we are referring to everyone doing their utmost to contribute towards saving the planet.

Planning a Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance or service will reduce your energy bill and tick a task off your portfolio of planet-saving responsibilities. Without heat pump servicing and maintenance, your pump will be very inefficient and its lifespan will be shortened.

Mitsubishi Heat Pump Maintenance & Servicing

To make sure you get the maintenance and servicing done regularly, it is always better to schedule and book ahead. Our day to day lives are too busy to have pending items floating around our busy minds, to then whip them out mentally a week before you want to schedule an appointment. Unless you are a cyborg – to which, please do let us know.

Your pump works superbly at heating and cooling throughout the year and lots of ‘things’ can happen in the year related to pollution, mechanics, friction, electricity surges, grime and more. A Comfort Solutions heat pump technician should be popping around to check your pump twice a year or, at the very least, one year.

In between Heat Pump Maintenance Visits

If you are okay with light maintenance, then you should also add heat pump filter cleans to your calendar. This should occur every quarter to ensure they are not restricted with dust and particles and causing the pump to overwork. You can simply vacuum the filters every quarter as well as ensure that the immediate area surrounding your pump is clear and not a source of dust e.g. don’t put your tumble dryer outlet near the pump and trim away foliage.

Mitsubishi Heat Pump Maintenance Technician Tasks

When a Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance technician arrives on-site for the service call he will do these tasks as a minimum:

  • Assess the condition of the filters and clean them if required.
    • The technician can do this for you every month if you would prefer to avoid interacting with all that dust and pollution.
  • Replace the filters if it is a 12-month visit.
  • Do a full system maintenance as per the Mitsubishi heat pump maintenance guidelines.
  • The external unit will also be cleaned and the draining conditions will be checked.
  • Debris or items that may be a potential blockage for the pump will be moved or cleaned away and advice relating to this will be shared with you.
  • The supply and return registers, located internally, will be carefully cleaned and any warped fins will be rectified.

Your pump is good to go for another six months!
