With the quick drop in temperatures last week being an indication, winter is well on its way. As such, you’ll want to ensure that your heater is ready to do its job effectively and efficiently. Without proper maintenance, however, it simply cannot do this. If you have a heat pump, you may be thinking, “but I already had annual maintenance done in the spring, so I’m good…right?”
Unfortunately, no. Heat pumps need maintenance more often than traditional HVAC systems, as they do twice the work. If you want your heat pump to work as well this winter as it did during the summer, then the time to schedule your second heat pump maintenance appointment is now!
Why Preventive Maintenance?
The point of routine preventive maintenance is to catch issues before they have the opportunity to develop into much larger problems. By the time you notice these problems and call for repairs, it can be too late to prevent the worst of the damage. By scheduling preventing maintenance, you reduce the chance of this happening, and can actually save a significant amount of money in repair costs over the life of the system.
Okay, but Why Bi-Annually?
Normally, a traditional air conditioning unit or heating unit needs once-a-year maintenance, so what makes a heat pump different? Well, they are used as both heating and air conditioning systems. This means that they are under twice as much stress and get double the wear and tear throughout the year than a traditional system would get. This means that if your last maintenance appointment was in the spring, now is the right time to schedule your next appointment.
