Take A Look At What’s In Most Heat Pumps


We thought we’d take a closer look inside a heat pump that we cleaned today, to see just what kind of dirt is in there. Is there mold in a heat pump? Dust, dirt, debris?

Usually there is. If the heat pump has been used at all for cooling, it will usually have some mold. We clean most units once a year, and we usually see the start, or ‘spotting’ of the mold on our next visit.

Heat pumps need to be cleaned and maintained regularly to keep them running efficiently and safely.
