The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The best time to stop a problem is before it arises. While we approach the wintertime in Los Angeles, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a heat pump breakdown. Your heat pump will be operating hard this winter to keep you comfy. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating will fix any current problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Routine heat pump maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without getting an oil change – the same applies 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 pros at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating in Los Angeles will review all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our experts will inspect every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump functioning efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces added strain on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The further a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected breakdowns, which come with unforeseen bills.
