Before the weather gets too warm in Prospect, KY, homeowners should consider having a tune-up done for their heat pump. Both the air handler and the compressor have become dirty and worn over the winter, so they deserve this treatment. Below, we give three ways that a spring heat pump tune-up can save you money in the long run.
1. Gives You Warranty Coverage
Chances are that your HVAC system comes with a manufacturer’s warranty that has several terms and conditions attached to it. Under those terms, you’ll likely notice that you need your system professionally maintained for the warranty to cover repairs. With maintenance, then, you can save by not paying for future heat pump repairs.
2. Fewer Repairs in the Future
Besides that, you won’t need to face as many repairs in the future. Preventive maintenance will catch a number of small problems, such as bad wiring and dirty coils that may cause larger issues if left alone.
3. Makes Your Heat Pump System More Efficient
Bad airflow, dirt in the air handler, leaves in the compressor unit, and refrigerant leaks can all impact efficiency. A tune-up eliminates these and other obstacles to a smoothly running HVAC system, which means better performance at a lower rate. In the end, you’ll even save money by extending the heat pump’s life span.
