The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to end a problem is before it starts. While we approach the colder season in Buellton, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a heat pump malfunction. Your heat pump will be operating hard this time of year to keep you warm. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning will fix any existing problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Routine heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without obtaining an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number 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 fragments to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will inspect every moving function of your system, counting 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 throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes added strain on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating extra 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 travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unforeseen breakdowns, which come with unexpected bills.
