Pumps Need Bi-Annual

Why Heat Pumps Need Bi-Annual Maintenance

Monday, April 4th, 2016 at 11:00 am

Spring is coming to an end, and time is running out to get your home in shape for the summer heat. Annual preventive maintenance is one of the prime ways to make sure that your air conditioning system is in good shape for the summer. If you're using a heat pump system to stay cool, though, you're going to have a bit more to consider if you want it to hold up well. Let's take a look at why heat pump systems need maintenance twice as often as other climate control systems.

Preventive Maintenance Benefits

First, let's take a look at why it's a good idea to have preventive maintenance done in the first place. As with many progressive problems, the faster you react to HVAC issues determines how much damage you can prevent. The problem with waiting for physical symptoms to alert you to problems with your heat pump is that most heat pump issues don't have outward warning signs. At least, they don't display symptoms until they're fairly advanced. By that point, it's a bit too late to prevent the majority of the damage. Scheduling preventive maintenance gives your technician the opportunity to find and fix problems before they can develop that far.

Bi-Annual Maintenance

Normally, HVAC systems only need preventive maintenance once a year in order to remain in good shape. This is typically done the season before the system is going to be under the most stress, in order to make sure that it's able to cope. Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling functions, however, which means that they actually are put under twice as much strain on an annual basis than other systems. If you want your heat pump to be in top shape at all times, you need to schedule both spring and fall maintenance every year.
