The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with heat pump maintenance is so crucial. The best time to halt a problem is before it arises. While we draw near the colder season in Omaha, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a heat pump failure. Your heat pump will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Regular heat pump maintenance from the team at Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning will mend any present problems and diagnose and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Regular heat pump maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning in Omaha will review all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our experts will inspect every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial job to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes added effort on your heat pump to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing additional 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
