Heat Pump Cleaning and MaintenanceIn the last few years, thousands of homeowners in the greater Burlington area have installed heat pumps in their homes. Heat pumps are very resilient and stand up well to Vermont winters but it is important that they are maintained regularly to keep them functioning efficiently and safely. There are two main reasons for maintaining your heat pump on an annual basis.

Schedule a heat pump cleaning

For Efficiency - Your heat pump is constantly working to purify the air in your home by capturing dust and debris. These particles over time clog up your filters and gum up the blower that is circulating the air. Cleaning the dust and debris restores your heat pump to full cooling & heating capacity.

For your Health - One of the most often occurring problems is mold growth inside the heat pump. Heat pumps can easily be exposed to moisture and high humidity levels. Mold loves moisture and if it starts to grow in your heat pump it can easily spread throughout the home.

The Energy Co-op recommends having your heat pump cleaned periodically. We offer a full maintenance and cleaning service to ensure your system runs safely and efficiently. The cost for the service is $150 per indoor unit and includes:

  • Highly Recommend Heat Pumps

    Last September, the Energy Co-op installed two heat pumps for us – one to heat and cool our downstairs living space, one to heat our hot water. We are very, very happy with both units and highly recommend them.
