What’s A Heat Pump?
If you’re looking to curb your home’s impact on the environment and save on residential heating and cooling costs at the same time, you should consider having a heat pump installed. Heat pumps are great alternatives to the traditional dual furnace and air conditioning system. They work year-round to provide optimal air conditioning throughout the summer and heating throughout the wintertime. Using an air handler or secondary furnace during the winter, heat pumps look like the traditional central air conditioner outside the home.
Heat pumps work by transferring heat; they usually use A/C refrigerants. To switch back and forth between heating and air conditioning modes, heat pumps use a reversing valve that’s used depending on the time of year and the homeowner’s preferences. Heat pumps allow homeowners to minimize their carbon footprint, which is better for the environment.
4 Benefits of Heat Pump Maintenance
Heat pump maintenance services offer you a wide range of benefits. Some of those benefits include the following:
Maintains Equipment Warranty
When heat pumps are installed, they come with an equipment warranty. This factory warranty is something everyone needs to take very seriously. They include fine print details with things homeowners must have done in order to keep them valid and active. Heat pump warranties say maintenance needs to be performed about once per year. When it is done, only state-licensed HVAC technicians should do the work. Maintenance protects both you and your heat pump’s equipment. Having a trained professional like Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air perform preventative maintenance also helps homeowners keep their equipment warranties valid. You will be protected and covered if a part goes bad or becomes defective, or if there’s some sort of HVAC equipment problem or malfunction.
Prolongs Life of Heat Pump
Preventative maintenance makes heat pump equipment last as long as possible. Because heat pumps run throughout the summer and the winter, they develop wear and tear faster. Without regular preventative maintenance, minor problems can develop into major issues if they aren’t addressed; this can shorten the HVAC equipment’s lifespan. Sometimes, it can even put home comfort level at risk in addition to safety. Preventative maintenance also helps us identify any problems developing and repair these issues early on. Heat pump maintenance also keeps everything running the way it’s intended to, which is one of the biggest reasons why HVAC manufacturers require it annually. Maintenance keeps equipment warranties active and valid and that’s mainly because these companies want their products to last as long as possible.
Improved Home Health and Comfort
A heat pump’s performance can have a major impact on your overall health as well as your indoor comfort. Without regular maintenance from a trained professional like Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air, you put everyone’s safety at high risk. Heat pumps can become safety hazards if they emit gas or if you develop cracks in the wrong place. Fire hazards can also develop because of short-circuiting in the electrical system. By having regular maintenance performed by friendly experts like Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air, all these issues get addressed ahead of time, leaving your home more comfortable and safer.
