A heat pump can keep your Arlington, Texas, home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. One of the best ways to ensure that your heat pump performs effectively and efficiently year-round is with regular maintenance. Let’s take a look at what kind of maintenance your heat pump needs.
What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an efficient way to heat and cool your home using only one system. It works much like an air conditioner and a furnace. A heat pump doesn’t have to create warm or cool air. Instead, it transfers warm air outside during the summer and brings it in during the winter.
Homeowners can complete some tasks on their own. Air filters need changing every three months, and that’s something you can do yourself. Be sure there’s no debris resting against the outside unit, and keep the outdoor coils clean.
Because heat pumps are complex, leave most of your aintenance to our expert service technicians. To ensure your heat pump gets serviced regularly and on time, consider investing in a maintenance agreement with us.
Here are some of the complex tasks that we’ll perform:
- Inspect the filters
- Check all electrical wiring and connections
- Check for correct electrical amperage
- Inspect the blower motor and check the blower wheel for balance
- Verify there’s adequate airflow
- Make sure there are no refrigerant leaks and recharge if necessary
- Lubricate the motor and inspect the belts
