Why fall is the perfect time for heat pump maintenance season

A heat pump is an innovative system that provides both cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. Because it operates year-round, it needs to be serviced by a professional HVAC specialist at the beginning of each season.

If your heat pump was inspected in the spring, you will need to have it examined in the fall. 

The fall is the perfect time for regular maintenance on your heat pump. A licensed HVAC tech can clean any debris accumulated over the summer and inspect the heat pump for any wear and tear. Your heat pump will be in prime operating condition when it needs to heat your home this winter. You will save money with lower energy bills and avoid emergency repairs once the snow hits.

To schedule your fall heat pump maintenance, call HVAC 911. You will be connected to a local HVAC technician who can schedule an appointment.

The fall is the perfect time for biannual heat pump maintenance.

Your heat pump needs proper clearance

Over the summer, overgrowth and debris can accumulate around the outdoor unit of your heat pump. This obstructs the airflow, causing your heat pump to work harder than it should, wasting energy. It also won’t produce heat as well. 

During your fall inspection, an HVAC technician will clear away any plants, debris and other obstructions. As a result, your heat pump maintains proper airflow. The correct airflow will lower your heating bills and improve the comfort of your home.

A new filter will improve air quality

When you hire an HVAC technician through HVAC 911 for fall heat pump maintenance, they will change the filter to ensure the air pumped into your home is clean and high quality. The filter change is beneficial if anyone in your home suffers from allergies. It’s also helpful to change the filter every couple of months. This will also improve the efficiency of your heat pump and lower your heating bill.

Fall maintenance will extend the heat pump’s lifespan

Routine maintenance will help your heat pump last longer. Some wear and tear is natural on a heat pump over time. But without regular fall maintenance, its parts can wear out faster. The worn-down parts can lead to a complete system breakdown. Having your heat pump serviced in the fall ensures all components are oiled, maintained and in good working order, extending its lifespan.

Routine maintenance will maintain the warranty on your heat pump

Most heat pumps have a warranty in the case of premature breakdown. But as a condition of the warranty, most manufacturers will require that an HVAC specialist regularly service your heat pump. Through regular fall maintenance, you will not void the contract if you suddenly face a repair need.

Regular maintenance can avoid emergency repairs

Nothing is worse than needing an emergency heat pump repair during a blizzard. By having your heat pump routinely serviced in the fall, you can spot repair issues ahead of time and deal with them proactively. This will avoid emergency repair issues. Get any repairs you need out of the way before maintaining heat becomes a critical winter issue.
