When it comes to keeping your heat pump in good working order, cleaning is essential.
If your heat pump is not maintained regularly, it may become clogged and break down.
Fortunately, cleaning a heat pump is relatively easy to do and can be done at home.
Kanartic heat pumps have a self-cleaning mode to be used twice a year:
- A first time at the beginning of summer
- Another time at the end of the summer.
In this guide, we will show you how to clean your heat pump properly and efficiently.
First, you'll need to make sure your heat pump is unplugged and cool before you start cleaning it.
Once that's done, you can start cleaning. You should start by examining your heat pump for dirty and clogged areas. Once spotted, you can clean them using a vacuum cleaner or a damp cloth.
Once you've cleaned the dirtiest areas, you'll need to clean the inside of the heat pump.
1- You should start by inspecting the vents to make sure they are not blocked. You can also vacuum the inside of the heat pump to remove accumulated dust and dirt.
2- After that, you should pass the damp cloth to remove dust and residue.
3- Once the inside of the heat pump has been cleaned, you must clean the ventilation grille. If you encounter heavy soiling, you can remove it with a damp cloth and a mild cleaning agent. You will also need to clean the filter, which can be done with a cleaner or by washing it with hot soapy water.
4- Once the ventilation grille and the filter have been cleaned, you will need to clean the exterior of your heat pump. To do this, you can use a damp cloth and a mild cleaning product. You'll also need to make sure that you don't use harsh chemicals, as they could damage your heat pump.
Once you've cleaned the inside and outside of your heat pump, you'll need to make sure all parts are reassembled and all vents and filters are in good condition. Once done, you can reconnect your heat pump and turn it on.
