A heat pump is a unique piece of equipment because the same components are used to cool down a home as are used to heat it. These systems use the air around them to absorb and release heat, and they are a fantastic choice in places such as Florida where extreme weather is not much of a concern.
Although a heat pump is highly effective, no HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) is perfect. While highly effective and efficient, the parts of the heat pump still wear down with use. Even if you try to conserve energy and run your AC system sparingly, it’s likely to have collected enough dust and wear that it is no longer quite as efficient as it once was.
How Professional Heat Pump Maintenance Can Help Retain Efficiency
Professional heat pump maintenance involves a little bit of fine-tuning, including an adjustment of many of the major components of the system. You’ll also get the outside coils and the blower components cleaned, as well as an inspection of the entire heat pump, inside and out.
An inspection may reveal a failing part or an electrical issue that is keeping the system from being as efficient as it could be. While you may have to set another appointment to make the repair, it’s less costly than it would be to run an inefficient system for weeks and then replace or repair the part when it finally fails.
Additionally, a routine cleaning of coils and other components and an adjustment of the screws, electrical connections, fan settings, and more all come together to make the system run more smoothly. Because the heat pump gets year-round use (unlike, say, a heater that would only be used in the winter in a warmer climate), we recommend scheduling maintenance twice a year so that you can continue to enjoy all of the following benefits:
- Peak Efficiency
- Fewer Repairs
- Better Performance
- Less Worry
- A Longer Lifespan
