Summer is here, and that means that your heat pump is going to be under a lot of stress keeping you cool on a daily basis. If you haven’t already scheduled maintenance for your heat pump this year, you should. Read on to find out why preventive maintenance is so important, and why you need to schedule it for your heat pump at least twice a year.
The majority of climate control problems have two qualities that make them dangerous. The first quality is that they get progressively worse the longer they develop. The second quality is that they don’t show obvious symptoms most of the time, until they’re quite far advanced. This means that by the time you notice that your heat pump has a problem, it may be too late to prevent the majority of the damage. Scheduling preventive maintenance, on the other hand, will give your HVAC technician time to find and fix issues before they have the chance to develop far. This can save you many thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the system.
Bi-Annual Heat Pump Maintenance
Most systems can be kept in good condition with just one maintenance appointment a year. That’s not the case with heat pump systems, however. Most climate control systems only have one really stressful season a year, so a maintenance appointment right before then is enough to prepare them for it. Heat pumps are both heating and air conditioning systems, though, so they need maintenance twice as often. You should schedule maintenance for your heat pump system during spring and fall, in order to keep it in the best possible shape. If you missed the spring window this year, schedule preventive maintenance as soon as possible.
