Benefits of Heat Pump Maintenance

The first and foremost benefit of heat pump maintenance is knowing that you can rely on efficient heating and cooling throughout the year. Here is a look ad some added benefits that come with this type of service:

  • Comfort – A proper functioning heat pump heats and cools all rooms equally. That means you can go to any corner of your home during any month of the year and feel the same level of comfort.
  • Longevity – A heat pump relies on various components to operate efficiently. When the filters, coils and other components are properly maintained, it leads to fewer replacement parts and a longer lifespan of the heat pump. The unit relies on those parts for optimum performance.
  • Savings – The more properly your heat pump operates, the less you will spend on utility bills every month. This also applies to the cost of repairs. Regular service can eliminate the need for costly repairs to your heat pump.

Identifying problem areas across your system

One of the biggest advantages to regular heat pump maintenance is identifying minor issues before they can escalate into major ones. This could essentially do away with a premature need to replace a heat pump as well. This could be considered an annual part of home improvement. For example, cleaning the coils will produce airflow without obstructions while also reducing wear on the coil. That results in fewer breakdowns, which means you do not have to dole out any money for repairs.

And even in the event that repairs are needed following a heat pump maintenance service, the cost will likely be significantly less than it would if the problem persisted. In instances where refrigerant is low, the compressor can sustain damage and needs to be replaced. Simply filling the refrigerant during a service call could actually keep the compressor from breaking down.

Tips and advice for homeowners

While homeowners are not expected to know all the specifics that come with heat pump maintenance, there are simple tips they can do from home. Throughout the winter months, it is a good idea to go out and take a look at the heat pump. Look for any accumulation of ice or snow and remove it so that it does not obstruct the airflow.

In the spring and summer months, it is a good idea to keep all plants, bushes and shrubbery at least a foot and a half away from the pump. Also, don’t hesitate to clean the outdoor coils should they become dirty. And it’s recommended to change out or clean an air filter on a monthly basis. And when the time comes to perform maintenance that requires a professional, contact Air Necessities for the most comprehensive heat pump service in Columbia, SC.
