Heat Pumps Need Bi-Annual Maintenance

The climate in Bandera, TX is perfect for heat pump HVAC systems. It doesn’t get too cold during the winter months and heat pumps are great for removing the heat and humidity of our long, hot summers. But keeping your heat pump running in optimal shape, whether it’s time for warm air or cool air, means scheduling your heat pump system for maintenance regularly. Unlike separate heating and cooling systems that require annual maintenance, your heat pump HVAC needs bi-annual maintenance, and the heating and cooling experts from D’Spain Sales & Service, Inc., can help you get your heat pump ready for winter.

Twice the Work, Twice the Wear

One of the unique aspects of a heat pump HVAC system is that it provides both heating and cooling. It is able to do this thanks to a component called the reversing valve. However, when you use a single system to provide all of your home’s comfort, you use that system twice as much as you would a separate heating or cooling system. This means your heat pump accrues twice the amount of wear and tear that a separate system does. Accumulating wear and tear can lead to poor performance, malfunction and eventual breakdown. Hiring our pros to perform bi-annual maintenance is the best way to take care of accrued wear and tear.

If It’s Just Cleaning, Why Can’t I Do It?

Here’s the thing: maintenance isn’t just cleaning. It is a full tune-up of your heat pump system. This entails a thorough inspection, adjusting, lubrication, cleaning, system checks and performance testing. Electrical connections and wiring are also checked. Bi-annual maintenance gets your heat pump HVAC system in the best shape to work for the coming season, which is why you want to schedule yours now.
