To ensure that your heating system is functioning at its best, there are steps that must be taken. When the temperatures have dropped and weather is frigid, no one wants to be dealing with a non-functioning system. Having the heat pumps maintained by the experienced professionals at a reliable company like Certified Heating and Air Conditioning is a vital part of a properly working system.
Additionally, maintaining the heat pump will save on energy consumption. To function optimally, the thermostat must be at a particular temperature to keep it working effectively. If it is not properly set, it could cause the system to be more expensive to operate. This triggers the backup heating by turning it on. The capacity of the heat pump to function can be lowered if the indoor fan is operated on a continuous basis. The only way to prevent this is by having an upgraded fan motor installed in the system.
To keep the heating system running smoothly, the heat pump and all other areas must be properly maintained. If necessary, the filters should be cleaned or changed on a monthly basis. Regularly cleaned fans, coils and filters will ensure unrestricted air flow. A reduction in airflow could damage the compressor. When dirt becomes noticeable on the outdoor coil, cleaning is required. When cleaning is being carried out, the fans should also be cleaned. Keep the area close to the unit door clean and uncluttered.
Besides frequent heat pump maintenance, you should use the services of our trained technicians on a yearly basis to examine the entire system. They will do an inspection, diagnose the problem and do any necessary repairs or replacement. This will keep the heating system running at its best.
