What Happens During Heat Pump Maintenance?
Several important steps take place during heat pump maintenance. The goal of our heat pump tune-up service is to leave you with a high-efficiency system that helps you save money on your energy bills and prevents untimely breakdowns. The most important tasks we perform include:
- Testing the accuracy of the thermostat
- Checking and changing the air filter
- Inspecting electrical components
- Oiling motors and checking the belt for wear and adjusting the tension if necessary
- Cleaning the evaporator coil and the outdoor condensing coil and fans
- Measuring and refilling the refrigerant, if necessary
- Cleaning the coil and drain pan
There may be other maintenance tasks we perform depending on the type of unit you have. We will customize your routine maintenance to meet the needs of your unit.
How Often Do Heat Pumps Need Maintenance?
If you own a heat pump in Augusta, GA, you might be wondering how often your system needs maintenance. Traditional heating and cooling systems require maintenance once per year, but you need to tune up your heat pump twice per year because it operates most of the year by providing your home with heating and cooling. We recommend heat pump tune-ups in early spring before the arrival of warm weather and once again in the fall before winter.
Heat Pump Replacement and Repair Services
We understand that problems can develop from time to time, even when regular heat pump maintenance is performed. That is why we also offer comprehensive heat pump replacement and repair services. If you have any heat pump issues, but you’re not sure whether repairs or a replacement is best, we can help. Count on us for all of your heat pump maintenance, repair and replacement needs.
The Benefits of a Heat Pump Tune-Up
Regular heat pump maintenance can help ensure your system runs efficiently throughout the entire year. Some of the other benefits include:
Improving the System’s Lifespan
Well-maintained heat pumps can last about 10-15 years on average. Calibrated systems operate more efficiently and less frequently to achieve the desired temperature settings, which reduces wear and tear on parts and increases the system’s lifespan. Regular maintenance can also help keep your warranty intact.
Improving Energy Efficiency
Research shows that well-maintained heat pumps use 10-15% less power than those without proper upkeep, which will cause your system to run less frequently and reduce energy bills.
Identifying Small Issues
Aside from performing the aforementioned maintenance tasks, heat pump maintenance can also uncover smaller issues before they turn into larger, more expensive repair issues. Technicians know the most common components to break down and will carefully check your heat pump. Identifying small issues now can help reduce the chance of an expensive repair down the road.
Reducing System Breakdowns
Speaking of expensive repairs, failure to have maintenance performed on your heat pump can lead to a complete system breakdown. This usually occurs on the hottest or coldest days of the year when your heat pump is being pushed to the limit to keep up with your desired home temperature.
