The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The perfect time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we move into the wintertime in Paso Robles, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a heat pump breakdown. Your heat pump will be working hard this time of year to keep you warm. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Paso Robles Heating and Air will fix any existing problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Annual heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without receiving an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Paso Robles Heating and Air in Paso Robles will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our specialists will investigate every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump functioning efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces extra tension on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing added wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills.
