Your Louisville home’s heating system needs to be serviced once in the fall, just like your air conditioning system needs to be serviced once in the spring. But since your heat pump provides both cooling in the summer and heating in the winter, it should receive professional attention once before each major seasonal shift. And that means regular fall heat pump maintenance.
Wear and Tear
Your heat pump works hard all summer long to keep your home cool and comfortable. Before you switch it into heating mode for the winter, it’s good to make sure none of the wear and tear your system went through in the summer caused any damage. There’s no way to know when one part or another will wear out on your heat pump, which is why regular professional maintenance is so valuable.
With routine maintenance, your heat pump will operate at the highest possible energy efficiency. And since that keeps your utility bills low, it’s a good idea to have this type of maintenance done any time you plan on using your heat pump a lot. Spring heat pump maintenance keeps your summer cooling bills low, and fall maintenance will keep your heating bills low as well.
There are few things worse than having your heat go out in the middle of a cold winter night. When you have your heat pump serviced in the fall, you can be sure it is in good working condition to get you through whatever winter throws at you. Not only is this more convenient, it also lets you save money on repair costs, as emergency service will always cost more than routine maintenance. And the minor repairs that professional Louisville heating technicians complete during fall heat pump maintenance are much simpler and cheaper than they would be if the problem was allowed to persist.
