Should I Schedule Heat Pump Maintenance Bi-Annually?

Preventive maintenance is one of the most important services you can schedule in order to ensure that your HVAC systems are in good shape. However, not all systems are designed the same, and as such not all have the same maintenance requirements. For example, if you used a heat pump to keep cool this past summer, and had maintenance done beforehand, you may think you’re set until next year.

Unfortunately, this can be a costly mistake to make. If you have a heat pump installed in your home, then it needs to be inspected two times a year—once before the cooling season, and once before the heating season. Keep reading to learn more about why.

Maintenance Prevents Problems

The whole purpose of preventive maintenance is to catch problems before they have a chance to develop into much larger emergencies or breakdowns. Most heat pump issues don’t immediately give off identifiable symptoms until they’ve grown into advanced problems.

By the time you notice these types of repair needs, it is likely too late to prevent the most of the damage. However, if you schedule preventive maintenance when you should, then you give our technicians the chance to locate and repair problems early enough to prevent most of the damage, saving you potentially thousands of dollars.

Why Twice a Year?

As you likely are aware, most heating and cooling units only need maintenance once a year. This can be done at any time, but for your convenience, we recommend having this service done right before you’ll be using the system the most.

Heat pumps, though, are used as both a heating and an air conditioning system. This means they are put under extreme stress and twice as much wear and tear than other systems. Therefore, they require maintenance twice as often. If you haven’t scheduled your heat pump maintenance yet in preparation for the heating season, then now is the time.
