The importance of heat pump maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The perfect time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we approach the colder season in Buellton, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold due to a heat pump malfunction. Your heat pump will be operating hard this winter to keep you warm. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning will repair any existing problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair. Annual heat pump maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same applies to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning in Buellton will examine all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our experts will inspect every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a crucial to-do list item to keep your system working properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional tension on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by producing additional 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 dirty, so is your air. The prolonged a problem goes unattended, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills.
