One of the greatest advantages of installing a heat pump in your home is the ability to use it for both heating and cooling. However, this also doubles the amount of stress on the system. Therefore, summer maintenance is doubly important for heat pump systems. Read on for more information about heat pump maintenance, and why you should schedule it for your heat pump this summer.
Why Prompt Repairs are Not Enough
A lot of homeowners mistakenly believe that, as long as they call for repairs as soon as they notice a problem with their heat pump, that will be enough to keep the system healthy. This is not true, unfortunately. Many problems can hide in the system for months before manifesting outward symptoms, and are made much worse by the added stress of daily use during the summer or winter. The best way to ensure that your heat pump remains healthy is to schedule repairs for it twice a year, once during summer and once during winter.
Why Schedule it This Summer?
The best time to schedule any kind of preventive maintenance is right before the season when the system will experience the most stress. For your heat pump, those seasons would be spring and fall, just before you shift from heating to cooling and back again. However, if you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance for your heat pump yet this year, late is far better than never. Schedule maintenance for your heat pump system as soon as possible, so that we can find and fix any problems with it before they cause damage to the system.
