If you use a heat pump to cool your home during the summer in Floyds Knobs, IN, then you’ll want someone to perform a tune-up on it during the spring when temperatures are still moderate. Spring HVAC maintenance can do you many favors, such as increasing your heat pump’s efficiency and longevity.
Less Energy Consumption
As a general rule, a well-maintained heat pump should function at its optimal efficiency level. Without dirty filters or other obstructions blocking airflow, your heat pump should cycle for around 10 to 15 minutes and then finish at the designated temperature. If the unit isn’t regularly maintained, you’ll often notice that it’s working harder than necessary, using extra energy to make up for the issues.
No Extensive Repairs
Naturally, a heat pump where the coils and filter are clean, the bearings lubricated and the wiring nice and tight will wear down more slowly than one you haven’t kept up with. Good maintenance reduces how often you need to pay for repairs, and chances are that the repairs will be less expensive and much more minor than if the system has major problems. Paying for routine maintenance can help you avoid costly fixes or, at worst, needing to replace your heat pump entirely.
Longer Life Span for the System
All of this leads to a longer life for your heat pump. Did you know that you could get 15 years and possibly up to 20 years out of your system? You save money, too, by putting off the installation of a new heat pump until it’s absolutely necessary.
