………Is a question we get asked a lot at Pure Air Cleaning. The Heat Unit filters should be cleaned periodically, about once every month or two, depending on usage and air quality. These are easy to access (by opening front cover and removing) and can be done by vaccuming the lint and particles from the filters. If the filters need a more thorough cleaning, they can be removed and washed with warm water and a mild cleaning solution – However, if the filter is a fibre filter, water should not be used on some filters as it can degrade the filter.
The standard recommendation of a full clean for a Ductless Heat Pump System is between 12 an 18 months. However, this can vary depending on the amount of use and the amount and type of air pollution in your area. We have seen heat pumps that have been used for 2 years that still don’t require a clean (though this doesn’t happen too often!), and we’ve seen systems that are desperate for cleaning after just 3 months!
HOW TO CHECK IF MY HEAT PUMP NEEDS CLEANING:
You can also open the cover to the Head Unit and remove the filters. Look at the coil (the metal unit with lots of thin blades/veins) to see if it has dust, particles or mold in-between the blades. This will decrease the efficiency and safety/air quality of the machine.
A full clean will keep your machine running at its top efficiency, save you money on power, eliminates mold and inhibits future mold build up. If the head unit is left uncleaned for too long and starts to develop mold, this will be distributed around your home in the air by the fan.
If in doubt, give us a call or e-mail : email@example.com and we’ll talk you through checking and even give you advice on how to clean the unit.
If you are unsure, we will come out FREE of charge to inspect your unit and let you know if it needs cleaning
Good luck and until next time, breath pure air, stay healthy,
