Is Your Heat Pump Ready for Winter?

Your heat pump cools and heats your home. After a long cooling season, is your heat pump all set for the heating season? Fall is the best time to maintain your heat pump, for the following reasons.

Avoid Emergency Breakdowns and Costly Repairs

During the cooling season, your AC accumulates plenty of dust, debris, pollen and particles that can slow it down or lead to a breakdown. During long cooling seasons, some AC components wear out, break or gather dust. These components need cleaning, repair or replacement to get the HVAC system ready for winter.

A heat pump tune-up prevents your pump from breaking down when heating season starts. An HVAC technician can carry out the necessary repairs and replacements to get the system ready.

Enhance System Efficiency

Simple fall maintenance tasks, such as replacing or cleaning the air filter, cleaning the dust, clearing the area around the outdoor unit and tightening loose parts, ensure that your HVAC system operates more efficiently. The heat pump won’t overwork itself to heat your room, and you’ll have smooth airflow throughout all parts of the home. This way, your heat pump consumes less energy, and you save money on utility bills.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

During fall HVAC system maintenance, the HVAC technician ensures that there is smooth airflow in and out of the ducts. The technician fits the system with a new or clean filter to trap anything that may cause poor indoor air quality. Other services that make your system run better include cleaning and lubricating the coil, compressor and fan.

As long as your system operates efficiently, there is a healthy balance of humidity and temperature in your home. This keeps you and your family feeling comfortable.
