How to Maintain Your HotSpot Energy ACDC12C

In the fight against climate change, heat pumps are easily the most underrated technology. To reach net zero emissions by 2050, we will need to expand our heat pumps from 180 million to 600 million by 2030.

Not only can consumers get ahead of the game by purchasing their heat pumps now, but you can even feed them with clean energy. With the HotSpot Energy ACDC12C, you can use solar panels to power your heat pump year-round, and with the right maintenance, keep your system running smoothly for years to come. Here’s how!

Of course, we don’t recommend taking apart your entire system if you don’t know how to put it back together. However, there are plenty of quick fixes that you could do by yourself, and it’s even easier to identify which problems you face. Here’s how!


Check Codes

Your ACDC12C will let you know if something is wrong with the AC unit or condenser. It has an internal computer with sensors to discover internal issues, much like your car. By learning to read these codes, you can quickly find the source of any problem your system is having. Below, you’ll find a list of error codes and what they mean.

If it’s something you can’t address yourself, consider contacting a professional for help. However, if you have a decent set of tools and you could install your ACDC12C yourself, then you shouldn’t have a problem with most of these common issues.


Change Air Filters

Like all air conditioners and heat pumps, it’s important to change the air filter as often as possible. This is an easy fix that can keep your system running smoothly throughout the year. Simply remove and replace the air filter every year, and clean it out at least once more during peak heating/cooling seasons for maximum efficiency. Often, this is all you need!


Keep Outdoor Unit Clear

It’s important to keep your outdoor unit clear of ice, snow, and debris. Proper airflow is essential for a heat pump to function properly. If the system isn’t running properly but isn’t displaying any codes, this should be the first thing you check.


Check Your Solar Panels

Don’t go climbing on the roof without safety equipment, but if your panels are visible or accessible from the ground, windows, or balcony, check them and ensure they are clear of snow and debris, and that they are connected to your system properly. If you notice the system is drawing more power from the grid connection, this is likely the cause.


Schedule Your ACDC12C Maintenance

If you’re worried about following these steps correctly, that’s okay. There are professionals who can help service your system for you. These systems are low cost and low maintenance to run and maintain. The only difference between the ACDC12C and other heat pumps is that it runs on solar power primarily, so any heat pump technician can service your system for you. 

Also, if you have issues with your solar panels, contact a solar technician in your area and see if they can help. Just remember to schedule your service in advance before the extreme weather comes to avoid any interruptions!
