Before the summer arrives in Boutte, LA, you’ll want to make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer temperatures. Chances are that you own a ducted heat pump; this complex system requires at least annual maintenance to run well and not need a repair at the worst time. Below, we lay out the best reasons why you should get spring AC maintenance for your heat pump.
Did you know that heat pumps don’t operate efficiently from the moment they start up but rather some minutes into the cycle? Yet if your system has a clogged filter, a dirty evaporator coil and other issues that cause it to short-cycle, you’re not allowing it to reach that optimal efficiency level. You only will with maintenance.
The difference should become apparent when you compare your monthly bills. When heat pumps lose efficiency, the bills tend to skyrocket even when homeowners haven’t altered their cooling schedule.
Fewer Repair Projects
Maintenance prevents small issues within the heat pump from growing, which means fewer repairs. Even when issues do crop up, they’ll most likely be relatively minor. Above all, you’ll get to push back the time for the installation of a new system; a maintained heat pump can last up to 15 or 20 years.
Does your heat pump come with a warranty to cover repairs? Remember that manufacturers usually make it a stipulation that the homeowner has the heat pump maintained; otherwise, they won’t honor their warranty.
