The best way to keep your heating costs down this winter is having heat pump maintenance performed before the temperatures start to drop severely. Now is the ideal time to make sure your heat pump is operating at maximum efficiency so that you are sure to stay warm for a minimal cost during the upcoming heating season.
Heat pump maintenance can provide these benefits through a series of routine tasks performed by your service technician. One of the main elements of the maintenance is a thorough cleaning of all the components. This helps to reduce unnecessary friction during operation, which can damage parts or strain your heating system. Moving parts also get lubricated to help them operate more smoothly.
All components will be checked for signs of deterioration, and your service technician will discuss replacement options with you. You should replace damaged parts as soon as possible; if left in, they could fail and cause a system breakdown. This not only leaves you with repair costs, but you could be without heat for days at a time.
Heat pump maintenance not only gives you peace of mind that you won’t be overpaying for your comfort, it can also help to extend the longevity of your heat pump. While the average heat pump lasts around 15 years, annual maintenance can help you extend the life of your system by several years.
While the cleaning and inspection of the components are important parts of routine heat pump maintenance, there are some other routine tasks that are performed:
- Airflow checked
- Refrigerant levels adjusted
- Electric controls set
- Thermostat programmed
- Electrical terminals inspected and secured
- Ductwork checked for leaks
