Despite its name, a heat pump can be used throughout the year to both heat and cool a home. Therefore, it is important that you maintain this product throughout the year to ensure that it remains in good condition.
Schedule a Service Appointment Every Six Months
Ideally, you will schedule a service appointment during the spring and again during the fall. The spring inspection can help to ensure that it does an efficient job of cooling your home during the summer. The fall inspection can ensure that it wasn’t damaged during the summer and that it can heat your home effectively and efficiently during the winter. Our technicians at David White Services in Athens will take a thorough look at your heat pump and take care of any issues it may have.
Call for Help If a Pump Starts Malfunctioning
Despite your best efforts, it is possible for a heat pump to fail or otherwise show signs of damage. For instance, rain that falls during the day could freeze overnight, and this could cause the pump to freeze. The same is true if it is covered in snow or if the weather is exceptionally cold for several hours or days at a time.
Refrigerant leaks could cause a pump to freeze during the summer months despite the warmer temperatures. It may also be a good idea to schedule a service appointment if your heat pump is running constantly at any point during the year. This could indicate a problem either with the temperature setting or the thermostat itself. Having the problem fixed as quickly as possible could prevent significant damage as well as higher than necessary heating or cooling bills.
