We’re more than halfway through the winter season, but we still have a little ways to go as far as heating season is concerned. That means you’re probably going to be using your heat pump to stay warm on a daily basis for a bit longer. The more you use your heat pump, the more wear and tear will build up on the system. Added wear and tear means an increased chance of the heat pump breaking down. If you want your heat pump to last as long as possible, you should schedule preventive maintenance. Read on to find out more about the benefits of heat pump maintenance.
Most homeowners avoid calling for repairs until a major problem definitely presents itself. This is typically done as an effort to avoid spending money on unnecessary professional services. Unfortunately, this tends to backfire. Heat pump problems get progressively worse the longer they are allowed to continue. By the time you notice that your heat pump is experiencing problems, it may have already taken damage.
Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, allows your technician to find and fix issues before they have the chance to damage the system. As long as you schedule heat pump maintenance at least once a year, you can save thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of your heat pump.
When to Schedule Preventive Maintenance
The best time to schedule maintenance for any system is the season before it experiences the most stress. For heat pumps, that’s spring and fall. If you’ve missed the window for fall maintenance, though, it’s best not to wait until next fall to schedule it again. Schedule it right now, because it’s far better to be late than not to have it done at all this season.
