Don’t Get Caught Shivering – Heat Pump Maintenance

Posted on: Nov 07, 2019

All HVAC systems must undergo scheduled maintenance to ensure they stay in optimal working condition. With regular maintenance, you can prolong the lifespan of your HVAC system, including your heat pump. 

Here’s what you need to know about maintaining your heat pump, so you don’t get caught shivering this winter:

What Could Be Affecting the Performance of your Heat Pump?

Many homeowners complain about their heat pumps underperforming. While cleaning the air filters is a good idea, it’s not the only thing you need to have done. Filters are only useful on large particles, so they’re unable to stop dust mites, mold spores, and pet dander among a host of other particles that go through the filters.

It’s common for homeowners to install ductless systems as a way of saving on heating costs. However, you can only achieve ultimate cost savings when your heat pump is running at full efficiency.

What Benefits Do You Gain From Regular Heat Pump Maintenance?

Is there a difference when your heat pump receives regular maintenance? Definitely! When you’re up to date with your heat pump’s upkeep, you’ll see some benefits.

The first difference you’ll notice is lower energy costs. With a regularly maintained heat pump, all systems run smoothly without any stress, so it reduces your energy use.

Another advantage provided by regular maintenance is a decrease in repair costs. When you schedule an appointment with a professional technician, they’ll be able to notice parts that are wearing out and reducing your heat pump’s efficiency. These can be replaced before they lead to breakdowns and more costly repairs.

Regular maintenance will also prolong the life of your heat pump. A regular heating pump has a shelf life of up to 10 years, but with proper maintenance, it can serve up to 15 years. This means you gain value for your money back.
