How often should I have my Heat Pump serviced? 

Trick question! If you service your Heat Pump yourself, a Heat Pump does not require servicing. However, a neglected system will not last nearly as long. To get the most out of your system, it must be clean and fault FREE. This is where having your Heat Pump serviced will save you in the long run. Most people wash their filters (Check DIY Service Guide) and have it serviced once every 12 months.

Repair vs. service vs. 

Like a car, a Heat Pump is a mechanical machine with moving parts, and each part has a life span that will eventually come to an end. You need to ask yourself is it worth spending money to keep it going or do you invest in a new model, that will cost less run and, look better, etc. 

Service vs. repair?

If your unit is not working properly, it may need a repair. Something you need to consider when thinking about having your Heat Pump serviced is that Heat Pumps do not last forever, and it may not be worth the service investment. For example, if a gas leak is found ($200-$400), the repair amount could be better spent on a new unit.
