A heat pump is a great HVAC system that requires less energy than a traditional furnace or air conditioning system. It cycles heat already in the air, either bringing heat from the cold air indoors to heat your home or removing it from the air in your home to cool it in the summer.
Like all HVAC systems, proper maintenance is necessary to keep your heat pump running smoothly and efficiently. The Department of Energy has reported a loss of 10 percent to 25 percent of energy in a poorly maintained heat pump. Proper maintenance of your heat pump will extend its life and save you from costly, unexpected repairs. Contact us today to schedule you heat pump maintenance!
Aside from letting All Seasons Heating & Cooling perform regular maintenance on your heat pump, there are a few things you can do at home in-between checkups.
For the best upkeep, you should inspect and change the filters of your heat pump once a month or as needed, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendation. Make sure the area around the heat pump is free of dust and debris, as this will help prevent dust and debris from getting in the inner workings.
By getting regular, planned maintenance on your heat pump, you’re not only saving energy, you’re saving money on your monthly energy bills.
At least once a year you should have one of our certified heat pump technicians come and perform routine maintenance on your heat pump. This includes, but isn’t limited to, the following steps:
