Remember to Have Your Heat Pump Checked This Spring

Spring is coming to an end, and the days are already starting to heat up. If you haven’t already had your heat pump professionally checked, though, don’t worry. There’s still plenty of time to get it in shape before the hottest weather arrives. Now, you may be wondering why you need to have your heat pump checked when you just scheduled preventive maintenance for it six months ago. Read on for the answer.

Why Preventive Maintenance Matters

Preventive maintenance is the single best thing that you can do to ensure that your system stays healthy. Problems that affect the health of your system tend to get progressively worse the longer they are allowed to develop. By the time you notice any external symptoms those problems might be giving off, your system will likely already be damaged. So, it’s a good idea to schedule preventive maintenance to catch problems early. As long as you have a professional examine your system on a consistent basis, you can save thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the system.

Bi-Annual Heat Pump Maintenance

Most of the time, you’ll hear contractors tell you that HVAC systems need annual maintenance in order to remain healthy. Normally, this is true. The reason it’s true is that preventive maintenance is best conducted the season before the system is placed under the most stress. So, if you have an air conditioner checked every spring, you can rest assured that it’s in good shape for summer and won’t have to worry about it till next year.

However, heat pumps are used as both heating and air conditioning systems. That means that they are used year-round instead of just a few months out of the year. Twice as much strain on the system means that you need to schedule preventive maintenance twice as often.
