Summer is coming to a close, and that means that it's almost time to schedule maintenance for your heat pump again. Sure, you probably already had your heat pump professionally checked out in the spring. That doesn't mean that you can get by without scheduling fall heat pump maintenance, though. At least, not without some consequences. Let's take a look at why you need heat pump maintenance during the fall, as well as spring.
Just waiting around for a problem to present itself before calling for repairs is not the best thing to do. This is mainly because a lot of heat pump problems don't have any outward symptoms until they get pretty advanced. By the time you notice that your heat pump is having issues, it's probably too late to prevent the majority of the damage. That's where preventive maintenance comes in. Scheduling preventive maintenance allows your HVAC technician to find and fix issues before they have the chance to develop. You can save quite a bit of money throughout the life of your heat pump system by doing this.
For most climate control systems, annual maintenance is enough to make sure that they stay in prime operating condition. For heat pumps, though, that doesn't work. Heat pumps can operate as both heating and cooling systems, which means they're used all year round. This doubles the amount of wear and tear on the system, which means the heat pump needs maintenance twice as often in order to stay in top operating condition. So, make sure that your heat pump gets preventive maintenance every spring and fall.
