Keep reading this post to learn more about the importance of keeping up with biannual heat pump maintenance.

Invest in Preventive Care

Wouldn’t it be great to prevent problems with your HVAC system before they ever begin? When it comes to a heat pump, you can do just that. Have your heat pump checked out twice each year to ensure that potential problems get identified and fixed early on before they can get much worse. 

Heat pump problems can begin very quietly with no obvious signs. It is possible that you won’t even know that something is wrong until it’s too late. Heat pump damage can spread quickly and by the time you realize something is wrong, it has turned into a big deal. One problem can have a domino effect that damages additional components—and sometimes large, expensive ones. 

Preventive tune-ups are a way to fix small things inside the unit a little at a time. Wear and tear is going to happen as a part of every day use and you can’t prevent it. But you can replace small components here and there, tighten things that are coming loose and dust off dingy parts so that your heat pump components can all work together for the best efficiency and output. We know that maintenance can seem like an unnecessary financial expense, but we encourage you to consider it as a long-term investment that has the potential to save you thousands of dollars compared to paying for expensive and more numerous repairs. 

Why Twice per Year? 

You may be thinking that AC and heater maintenance is usually only once per year—so why biannually for a heat pump? It’s important to have twice-per-year heat pump tune-ups, and we can explain why. Your heat pump system is running and working year-round. Other HVAC systems have separate heating and cooling units. With a heat pump, everything is rolled into one. 

Your heat pump takes on stress from use almost all day, every day, all year round. You want to have an expert check your system in between the high-use seasons of summer and winter to ensure that all of the components look good. Now is one of the best times to schedule a heat pump inspection and tune-up because your unit just finished working hard to cool your home and will soon be switch over to heating mode for the late fall and winter.
