Dirt is a heat pump's enemy. Dirt acts as a thermal insulator and robs efficiency - ultimately driving up the cost of operation.
A dirty outdoor coil can result in "ice ups" of the outdoor coil. Ice ups will block the flow of air and contributes to coil and compressor failure. Shrubs, fencing, etc. can reduce air circulation around the outdoor coils, and have similar effect as a dirty coil.
A dirty filter or indoor coil can impede the ability of the coil to give up the heat collected inside. Allowing this condition to exist for a long period can cause compressor failure.

Mr Heat Pump Cleaner® employs a chemical flushing technique. Chemical flushing is best for Heat Pump units that have not been serviced for more than 1 year. Chemical Flushing can flush out long-time dirt to revive and refresh your tired heat pump.
All chemicals used by Mr Heat Pump Cleaner are a safe Bio-degradable & non acidic formula so it can be used indoors.
Scope of Work:
- Check & Clean air filter
- Flush internal blower wheel (internal fan)
- Flush internal drainage system.
- Chemical Flushing of outdoor condenser coil with a bio-degradable chemical cleaner
- Extend the life of your heat pump
- Prevention of system breakdown
- Cleaner & healthier air
- Improvement of Heat Pump efficiency
A Healthier Home
Like your car, if you neglect your heat pump, it will wear out faster and cost more to operate and maintain. By keeping the inside unit of your heat pump clean and well maintained, you can produce a healthier environment for your family. This is because there are areas found inside the unit that are cool, dark and humid. These areas are perfect breeding grounds for molds, fungi and bacteria.
The potential to save energy costs is one of the main reasons for installing heat pumps. Owners expect to retain these savings for the life of the equipment.
But as the pump runs, dirt, dust, and other contaminants that aren't trapped by the unit's lint filter tend to build up on the coils. This build up acts as an insulator and the dirty indoor coils create longer thermostat "on" times.
Dirty filters, coils, and fans reduce airflow through the system. Reduced airflow decreases system performance and can damage your system's compressor.
Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglected one ranges from 10% - 35%.
Few routine chores will pay off more handsomely, both in comfort and in dollars saved, than a simple heat pump clean. You can bet that a year's worth of dirt and debris has clogged the cooling fins and lowered the unit's efficiency. A dirty Heat Pump may even stop heating altogether.
It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Heat Pump failures were the result of the owner's failing to clean them!
