The importance of heat pump maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so important. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we move into the winter months in Indian River County, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a heat pump failure. Your heat pump will be running hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Custom Air Systems Inc will mend any present problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair. Routine heat pump maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without getting an oil change – the same goes for 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 professionals at Custom Air Systems Inc in Indian River County will examine all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump functioning correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital job to keep your system working properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional tension on your heat pump to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air. The longer a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unexpected bills.
