Heat pumps are an asset for any home. But it’s absolutely vital that you keep them in good working order.
By getting your heat pump system serviced annually by a professional, you’ll ensure that the air your family breathes is healthy. You’ll also guarantee that your system is getting rid of excessively hot or cold air as efficiently as possible – potentially saving you money on power bills in the long run. Did you know, for example, that an average of 30% of the air in duct systems is lost due to leaks or shoddy connections?
The best times to arrange for a checkup are just before New Zealand’s hot and humid summer, and just before its damp and often freezing winter. These are the seasons when you’ll be relying most on your heat pump. You should look for a specialist with the necessary training, tools, and experience to keep your heat pump in tip-top shape.

An annual service is usually enough for a residential heat pump. But if you notice any strange smells or noises, or your power bill seems to be higher than usual, this could suggest that there’s a problem that needs to be addressed.
