Remember to utilize the filters: essential for maintaining an energy-efficient and health-conscious household.

Our wardrobes are regularly cleaned out, the kitchen cupboards are thoroughly scrubbed, and the accumulated clutter is discarded. However, one aspect that often goes unnoticed is the maintenance of our heat pump/air conditioner filters.

Although they may seem insignificant compared to the larger unit, these filters play a crucial role.

They are essential for ensuring clean air, reducing operating costs, and improving energy efficiency in your home. Fortunately, cleaning these filters is a simple task that requires a little attention. To assist you, we have compiled a few guidelines to help you determine when your filters need to be refreshed and how to go about doing it.

The importance of filters should not be underestimated. Although cleaning filters may seem like a minor task, it holds great significance for several reasons. Firstly, filters play a crucial role in maintaining clean air.

By simply opening your indoor unit and observing the filter, you will be astonished by the amount of dust and debris it accumulates.

Allowing these particles to remain in your unit can greatly impact the air quality you breathe. In fact, it can lead to various health issues such as headaches, asthma symptoms, and fatigue due to the presence of allergens.

Furthermore, regularly checking and cleaning your filters can surprisingly save you money. When a unit becomes clogged with dirt, it requires more effort to perform its function, resulting in higher energy bills. Additionally, dust and dirt can infiltrate the machine itself, leading to expensive breakdowns and premature failure.

How frequently should you clean your filter? If you have never cleaned your heat pump filter, you are not alone - many individuals are unaware of the need for regular cleaning and have not received any instructions to do so.

However, it is recommended to clean the filters every month during the peak summer and winter months. Although it may seem excessive, you would be amazed at the amount of dirt that can accumulate in a short period of time.

For the rest of the year, cleaning the filters at the start of each season is generally adequate.

Identify the location of your heat pump filter. In the case of a ducted system, the filter can be found behind the return air grille in the ceiling, typically situated in a hallway.

For a split system, you will need to lift the front fascia cover and remove the filters in order to clean them.

Once you have located the filter, thoroughly wash it under a tap. 3. Allow the filter to completely dry in a shaded area before reinstalling it.

Ensure that you do not switch on your unit until the filter has been placed back in its original position.

It is advisable to set a reminder for yourself to repeat this process in two to three months' time. If you still possess the instruction manual that accompanied your heat pump, it may be beneficial to peruse it for any specific instructions or tips regarding the cleaning of the filters for your particular unit.
