Maximising Efficiency by Servicing Your Heat Pump

Like any electrical appliance, your heat pump needs regular servicing. And even though we are all about Daiken here at Hiko Air, we can still offer servicing and maintenance across a broad range of heat pumps, air conditioners and air purifiers outside of our preferred brand. We service and repair heat pumps and air conditioning systems in Papamoa, Mt Maunganui and Tauranga, and we stock lots of parts so we can get your unit back up and running in good time.

Professional Plus Personal

While it’s always best to have an expert come in and check your heat pump, it’s also a good idea to learn how to check and clean your filters yourself in order to keep your appliance in good order. These units can be a real game-changer in your home or commercial space, and taking good care of them will ensure they continue to enhance your lifestyle for many years to come. At Hiko Air, we recommend you collect a few items before you climb up the ladder to service your heat pump; it’s also good to be aware that there may be variations from pump to pump on the best way to clean the filters.

Choosing The Right Unit

Choosing a floor heat pump unit for your small office or cafe can ensure a nice even distribution of heat. If you have a hospitality business, you may prefer a heat pump that sits at ground level as a wall unit could prove bothersome over tables where people are eating, as some people are quite sensitive to that type of airflow. For increased comfort for all your patrons, we can recommend the Daikin Split System Heat Pump PERFERA. This powerful unit is whisper quiet and it produces optimal convection by pushing hot air out from the bottom, ensuring a more even distribution as the heat rises into the room.

Split System Heat Pump US7

Let’s chat about the best way to clean the Split System Heat Pump US7; purchasing this unit is an environmentally conscious consumer choice, and its 2-stage filtration system removes allergens and formaldehyde contained in soft furnishings from the air in your home or office. This Daiken heat pump is relatively easy to clean. You will need a damp cloth, a ladder, a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush – a new paintbrush will do the trick. It’s better to remove any rugs or furnishings from under the heat pump before you start.

Clean Under the Hood

Expose the filters on your Split System Heat Pump US7 by gently lifting up the face of the heat pump; you can remove the filters easily by using the tab on each filter. Pop the filters on an old towel on the table and gently vacuum each side; use your brush to loosen any stubborn dirt or lint – vacuum them twice. Now pop up the ladder again with your cloth and clean under the hood and along the casings where the filters sit. Don’t rush; it’s important to keep the Eco Air Heat Pump well-calibrated, so you don’t want to be knocking around under the hood like a bull in a china shop!

Careful Up There!

That’s it! Be careful up the ladder, and when you are clipping the filters back in, you shouldn’t need to force them; all Daiken heat pumps and air conditioning units are cleverly designed, and a gentle touch is key. If you take regular care of your Eco Air Heat Pump, and book annual servicing, you should be comfortable all year round.
