Heat pumps are 2-in-1 devices, offering your home both heating and cooling. There are a few attributes of a heat pump system that make it different from more traditional systems, and one of these is scheduling bi-annual maintenance. Separate heating and cooling systems are typically scheduled for annual maintenance, but when you use a system that provides your home with both, it needs to be maintained properly.
Twice the Usage
The main reason it is important to schedule your heat pump for maintenance twice a year is that, unlike separate heating and cooling systems, your heat pump runs almost year-round. This means it garners twice the amount of wear and tear than separate heating and cooling systems do. A second reason it’s important to schedule your heat pump for maintenance bi-annually is that the system uses refrigerant to both heat and cool your home, and if the refrigerant level is off due to a leak or other issue, your heat pump won’t operate correctly.
What Happens During Heat Pump Maintenance?
A heat pump maintenance appointment is a full tune-up for your system, not just a quick once-over of the unit. Your technician will thoroughly inspect the entire system for any problems, then take care of small repair issues like frayed wiring. The components will be cleaned, and all moving parts will be lubricated. If any components have shifted during usage, your technician will adjust them. The refrigerant levels will be checked to ensure they are at the specified level, and the system will be tested for performance.
What Does All This Accomplish?
Bi-annual maintenance keeps your heat pump working optimally. This helps make it energy efficient, unstressed and able to easily meet your heating and cooling needs.
