If your heat pump seems to be acting up, your first response is to call for repairs. However, that may not be the most suitable solution for your heat pump. At times when your heat pump acts strange, it may be a sign that you need a heat pump tune-up instead of a repair. If you haven’t been keeping up with your heat pump maintenance, now is the best time to start. With Better Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, you can be sure that your heat pump will get the service it deserves. We are here to help you keep your home warm this winter.
What is Heat Pump Maintenance?
Heat pump maintenance simply entails a series of thorough inspections and a clean-up. Just as you would schedule a regular check-up with your doctor to look for any hidden health issues, a heat pump check-up will look for potential problems. Heat pumps are usually used during summer and winter since they provide heating and cooling. Therefore, it is wise to check up on the components regularly to combat severe wear and tear.
During a heat pump tune-up, we work through a checklist to make sure we don’t miss anything. Most of the checklist includes preventative maintenance items. Our main priority is to do routine safety inspections to ensure that your unit is not dangerous to use. Then we will clean the condensate drain, condenser coil, and drain line. In addition, we will check all the components to ensure that they work properly. One faulty part can cause a world of trouble for your heat pump. We will also check for leaks and replace your air filter.
If we find that you need repairs, we will first let you know and give you a price estimate before we proceed with them.
Reasons to Keep Up with Heat Pump Maintenance
Most homeowners don’t want to spend money on something that may be unnecessary. For instance, you may pay for a heat pump annual service even though there is nothing wrong with your unit. However, there are so many benefits to sticking to your maintenance plan.
Did you know that regular tune-ups will prolong the life of your heat pump? It is far better to prevent a problem than to fix it. Once the problem becomes severe, it may inflict permanent damage on your heat pump.
Regular maintenance also keeps your unit clean, which means that it uses less energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. This will be a major monthly saving that you will see immediately after scheduling your first tune-up.
If that is not enough to convince you, then you should also know that regular maintenance improves your indoor air quality. When we clean your system, we make sure that it is free of dust and mold. This means that you will have purer air in your house for your family’s health.
What Can You Do Between Annual Tune-Ups?
While a heat pump service should be left to a professional HVAC technician, there are a few things you can do to keep your heat pump in prime condition until your next service. This is incredibly important, especially because heat pumps are used for winter and summer. You can make sure your heat pump runs as efficiently as possible. Here’s how:
- Change your filters regularly. On average, you should change your filter every 1-3 months.
- Keep the area around your outdoor unit clear of plants and debris so that air can flow easily.
- Be sure to keep snow and ice off your outdoor unit when it builds up.
- Ensure that your indoor vents are open so air can flow freely.
- Call for heat pump repairs as soon as you notice them, so you can prevent further damage.
