It’s autumn here in southwest Mississippi. In addition to pumpkin spice lattes, cooler weather is on the way. Is your heat pump ready? In this blog post, we’ll review the five benefits of fall heat pump maintenance, and why you should call Comfort Air for tune-up service.
If your home has a heat pump, it’s important to have a professional HVAC technician take a look at it before you start using it this winter. After the long summer, we need to make sure everything is still working right.
Reasons to book your fall heat pump maintenance with Comfort Air
Here are just five of the reasons you should call Comfort Air for a professional heat pump tune-up here in McComb and surrounding areas of southwestern Mississippi.
1. Your system has been working all summer
Unlike traditional air conditioners or furnaces, heat pumps are in use all year long. This means that your heat pump has been working hard to keep your home cool this summer. Before you ask it to keep your home warm this winter, get a tune-up.
With heat pump maintenance, we’ll be able to address any problems or faults that may have developed over the summer. We’ll also be able to ensure that you’re getting optimal performance in the colder months ahead.
2. Increase your system’s lifespan
Regular maintenance and upkeep can lead to a longer heat pump lifespan. Over time, the parts with a heat pump begin to experience normal wear-and-tear. Without regular service and attention, these parts are at risk to break—causing a breakdown and possibly leading you to need a new system after a shorter amount of time than otherwise.
In contrast, regular heat pump maintenance ensures that such parts are cared for and able to last longer. During a Comfort Air maintenance visit, our professional NATE-certified technician will lubricate moving parts, clean the heat pump, and inspect the rest.
The result? Less wear-and-tear this winter—and a longer life for years to come.
3. Make sure you’re getting energy-efficient performance
Regular maintenance will also ensure high-efficiency heat pump performance. This helps you keep your electric bills down during the winter months. In fact, with regular biannual maintenance on your heat pump, you can have an energy-efficient winter and summer with your system, all while avoiding the cost and headache of breakdowns.
4. Lower the risk of a heat pump breakdown
Another great benefit of regular maintenance is that it reduces the risk of emergency breakdowns. That’s because the parts of your heat pump have been checked out and any potential issues have been fixed—all before you turn on the system for the year.
5. Maintain your system warranty
Most heat pumps come with a manufacturer’s warranty, designed to address any problems with the system and give you peace of mind. Sounds great, right? But, look closely: many warranties have the fine print that heat pump maintenance from a professional HVAC company is required to keep the policy intact.
If you want to keep your warranty around (and who wouldn’t?), schedule a tune-up with our team.
