Before things heat up this summer in Gretna, LA, you’ll want to schedule heat pump maintenance. At the very least, you can avoid scheduling conflicts and not face a sudden catastrophe like a system breakdown. Below are several good reasons for having a professional maintain your heat pump this spring.
Fewer Repairs and Emergencies
Maintenance can prevent serious issues from cropping up. This is because a maintenance technician addresses all the little issues in a system before they cause further damage.
As a result, you’ll find yourself requesting fewer repairs during the year. On average, homeowners may need only one or two minor repairs, like the replacement of a fan blade or other inexpensive component, when they get maintenance.
A Longer-Lasting System
Small, unnoticeable issues have a way of putting premature wear and tear on your system. Even something as minor as a clogged filter will hinder airflow and strain the blower motor as it strives to circulate air at a consistent rate. With maintenance, though, you eliminate these issues and have a chance of keeping your heat pump for 10 or even 15 years.
Lower Monthly Bill
Less hindrances on a system mean more energy-efficient performance. To reach your set point, your heat pump probably won’t have to run beyond the usual 10 to 15 minutes per cycle. Consequently, you’ll spend less each month to achieve indoor comfort.
Cleaner Indoor Air
One indirect effect of heat pump maintenance will be a boost in the quality of your indoor air. Heat pumps, after all, have a sizeable role in removing excess humidity, and their filters can trap pollutants like dirt, tobacco smoke and even organic growths.
