Yearly heat pump maintenance in Charleston ensures your system stays in optimal condition. Keep your heat pump from breaking down when you need it most. Neglecting your system leads to more extensive repair services, higher utility bills, and premature breakdowns.

Don’t wait to fix even minor issues. The Charleston heating and cooling experts at Anchor Heating & Air will keep your system running smoothly all year long.

What Do Maintenance Services Entail?

During our maintenance visit, our experts will thoroughly examine every component of your heat pump. Our technician will inspect the following during a service appointment:


We will examine your thermostat to ensure it’s accurate. We’ll also examine its connection to your heat pump and correct it if necessary. If your thermostat is faulty, your home won’t heat or cool properly, even if the system otherwise works.


The ductwork moves the air around your home, cooling or warming specific rooms. If the ductwork has tears or blocks, these issues can back up the system and cause severe problems down the line.


We’ll check for leaks and ensure the refrigerant is doing its job. If everything works perfectly throughout your system, you’ll never need to replace or refill your refrigerant. We’ll let you know if we find a problem with this component.

Check for Dust and Debris

Dust, dirt, and debris can clog heat pump machinery, hampering its cooling and heating air abilities. We’ll thoroughly clean the coils, filter, and blower to remove any blockages.

If our technicians identify a repair, we’ll let you know how we can fix it.

What’s the Benefit of Heat Pump Maintenance?

Regular heat pump maintenance in Charleston keeps your system working in peak condition. Without routine care, repairs will become more involved and expensive. You may even need a heat pump replacement more quickly than necessary.

Maintenance catches minor repairs before they worsen. Some issues we can rectify include:

  • Incorrect installation of a new unit
  • Dirty coils and filters that clog up the system
  • Water pooling around the unit

The sooner we mend an issue, the better. Regular maintenance encourages energy efficiency and adequate air conditioning or heating.
There are many benefits to maintaining your heat pump. Read the following to learn more about each of these perks.

Lowered Utility Bills

Regular maintenance can increase your system’s energy efficiency by over 20%. More efficient machines use less energy to change a room’s temperature, lowering your monthly bills and increasing overall satisfaction.

Increase the System’s Lifespan

Without yearly maintenance, you can shorten your heat pump’s lifespan by several years. Because a heat pump provides constant heating and cooling, you use your system year-round.

That workload takes a toll on any system. Without regular repairs and inspections, you may damage your system beyond repair.

Prevent Repairs

You’ll save hundreds of dollars in costly repairs by fixing minor issues as they crop up. A large issue always starts with a small problem. The sooner we fix the minor issue, the better your system will work.

Lower Your Chance of Breakdowns

Breakdowns most often occur during the hottest and coolest months of the year, when the system operates at full capacity. Keep emergencies at bay by ensuring your system works perfectly year-round.

Get your system checked by the  Anchor Heating & Air professionals once or twice a year. You can trust us to keep your system in tip-top condition.

How Much Does a Tune-Up Cost?

The cost of a maintenance appointment depends on the system’s brand, size, and style. Generally, the amount is much less than standard repairs or installing a new system.

With regular maintenance visits, we’ll get to know your system’s unique needs. You and your household will benefit from our efficient service.

What Maintenance Can I Do Myself?

It’s always best to hire our heating professionals for the technical work. Still, you can take steps to ensure your heat pump functions smoothly.

First, change your air filters as recommended or once a month. A fresh air filter lowers indoor dust and encourages the system to work more efficiently.

Additionally, keep all branches and shrubs from touching the outdoor unit. Doing so will prevent leaves from clogging it.
