The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The best time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Saint Petersburg, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a heat pump failure. Your heat pump will be running hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc will fix any existing problems and analyze and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Routine heat pump maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc in Saint Petersburg will examine all those moving fragments to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will inspect every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump running properly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates added effort on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills.
