The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Port St. Lucie, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a heat pump malfunction. Your heat pump will be operating hard this season to keep you comfortable. Regular heat pump maintenance from the team at Custom Air Systems Inc will fix any present problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Annual heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without receiving an oil change – the same applies to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Custom Air Systems Inc in Port St. Lucie will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system running correctly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional tension on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by producing added wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unforeseen bills.
