As implied by their name, heat pumps should only be used in the wintertime, right? Not at all. Heat pumps are unique in that they don’t actually generate heat, just transfer it both inside and outside your home. ABC Cooling, Heating & Plumbing wants to show you the importance of a spring heat pump tune-up.
Why you should schedule a spring heat pump tune-up
Heat pumps work hard
Because heat pumps operate year-round providing your home with both heating and cooling, they work twice as hard as furnaces and air conditioners. That means you need to be extra vigilant about taking great care of your heat pump, so it continues to operate effectively and efficiently for as long as possible. Without regular maintenance from the seasoned pros here at ABC, your system can see minor issues spiral out-of-control due to the regular use and wear-and-tear on your heat pump.
Get ready for the warmer months of the year
Something else to think about is the fact that if your heat pump develops issues over the winter, scheduling a tune-up now means you don’t have to worry about those issues carrying over into the warmer months of the year.
An ounce of prevention is undoubtedly worth a pound of cure when it comes to appliances. That goes double for your heat pump. Staying on top of your HVAC maintenance by calling our team is sure to be the smart play in the long run.
Just as you perform better at work when you’ve had a good night’s rest, a good meal, and exercise, the same principle applies to your HVAC systems and your heat pump. With proper upkeep and regular maintenance, your heat pump will continue performing at its best, keeping you and your family comfortable no matter what the weather is outside.
Heat pumps and other HVAC appliances can cost you money when you don’t take proper care of them. For instance, clogged air filters compromise the overall operation, which means they have to work harder to move air. This costs you unnecessary money in the long run. Keep that from happening with a tune-up.
Here’s what to expect during your heat pump tune-up
During your heat pump’s tune-up, you can expect it to be cleaned, and the air filter may need to be changed. Additionally, your pump may be low on refrigerant, which could indicate a leak. You can also expect the compressor and electrical components to be inspected.
