The importance of heat pump maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The perfect time to stop a problem is before it arises. While we move into the wintertime in Laguna Niguel, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a heat pump failure. Your heat pump will be operating hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating will fix any present problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Regular heat pump maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating in Laguna Niguel will inspect all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating properly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with changing your air filter is a crucial job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes added effort on your heat pump to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
