Minimal maintenance is required on heat pumps, but it is advisable to have them inspected annually by a professional to avoid minor problems developing into major issues.
Maintenance of the system is highly recommended as a break down could mean a costly and time consuming repair. Heat pumps have a long life expectancy and some have been recorded as still functioning perfectly after twenty to twenty five years.
