The beauty of today’s heat pumps lies in comfort, convenience and energy efficiency. Heat pumps are always doing double duty—heating your home or office in the winter and cooling them in the summer. However, without the proper heat pump maintenance, your HVAC unit just doesn’t work as effectively.
Scheduling professional heat pump maintenance ensures that your HVAC is working at maximum performance for when you need it most. Because heat pumps transfer heat rather than generate it, heat pumps can efficiently provide comfortable temperatures for your home as noted by energy.gov.
The proficiency of a heat pump can’t be matched for providing warmth for your home. The Dept of Energy also reports that the most common type of heat pump is an air-source. Today’s heat pumps can reduce your electricity use by 50% compared to electric resistance heating—furnaces and baseboard heaters.
Why is HVAC maintenance needed?
We all think our systems will last forever, but without proper heat pump maintenance service, your HVAC may become overworked and overloaded, resulting in a non-efficient unit. Routine heat pump maintenance helps to prevent damage to the compressor and reduces the risk of unexpected, costly repairs.
Heat pumps, just like cars, require regular tune-ups and services to keep them in good working order. An HVAC maintenance schedule is best completed during the fall and spring when your unit is not being used much. Without heat pump maintenance, your energy savings dollars may go to waste.
