Frequently Asked Questions about heat pump servicing

Q. What if I have two heat pumps to be serviced - is it cheaper?

A. Yes. If you have two heat pumps to be serviced, the second unit will cost only $139. Similarly, if you are buying a new heat pump from us, we can service any existing heat pumps while we are at your home for just $139 each.

Q. Why should I get a heat pump service?

A. Regular cleaning of heat pump filters is necessary because lint, dust and dirt can clog the filters - not only harbouring bacteria but also inhibiting air flow which makes your heat pump less energy efficient.

Ensuring your heat pump operates efficiently will save on running costs while good maintenance including filter cleaning and a performance check can help ensure your warranty remains valid.

Q. How often should a heat pump be cleaned/serviced?

The heat pump filter should be cleaned every 3 months. This is something you may be able to do yourself.
A full service of both the indoor and outdoor unit is just once per year.

Q. Can't I service my heat pump myself?

A. If you know what you're doing and are physically able then you certainly can and should clean your heat pump yourself. A full professional clean of both indoor and outdoor unit is more complex and should ideally be done each year or at worst every 2 years.
EECA has a handy video on cleaning the filter from the indoor unit although our service covers much more including ensuring your outdoor unit is both clean, operational and treated to protect it from insects that can void your warranty. Try cleaning the filter of the indoor unit 3 monthly and see if you need professional help on the full service.

Q. What brands of heat pump do you maintain/clean?

We can provide a maintance clean/service for any brand. Including Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic, Rinnai, Haier, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and any other. A maintenance service does not require any unique parts or products.

Q. Do you service heat pumps near me?

We can do heat pump servicing at any property within 50km of our branch locations in Whangarei, North West Auckland, South East Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Whakatane, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

Q. Won't the warranty cover any service issue?

A. Yes the warranty will cover performance issues during the warranty period.
A service call is to do with maintenance not repairs. Think about servicing your car as opposed to getting a mechanic to fix something.

Using Mitsubishi Electric's Warranty as an example:
Owner's Responsibility: The owner is responsible for the correct operation and regular maintenance of the equipment. The correction of any non-product fault or problem is not covered by the warranty. Responsibilities include, but are not limited exclusively to:

  • Regular cleaning of the air filter(s) and replacement where necessary.
  • Operation and maintenance of the equipment in accordance with the operating instructions.
  • Ensuring the condensate drain is kept clean.
  • Ensuring the air inlet and outlet on the outdoor unit is kept clear of any obstructions (dirt, leaves, plants).
  • Replacement of exhausted batteries.
  • The application of additional corrosive protection if the product is installed in a corrosive environment (e.g. sea air, industrial environment, geothermal sulphur contamination).
  • Regular cleaning of the outdoor unit.
