It’s Almost Time to Schedule Heat Pump Maintenance

Monday, February 26th, 2024 at 11:00 am


Hot weather is never that far away in Florida. Now that it’s almost March, we can start to anticipate hotter and hotter days and fewer cool ones. Is your heat pump ready to switch over to cooling mode and settle there for a long stretch?

You might think you’re in good shape—you just have to adjust the heat pump and it will start sending cooled air into your home. But before you make the adjustment, there’s an important job to take care of: scheduling heat pump maintenance in St. Augustine. There’s no better way to ensure you get reliable, effective, and efficient performance from your heat pump during the middle of the year.

The Benefits of Spring Heat Pump Maintenance

We’re not exaggerating when we say that regular maintenance is the best service you can have for your heat pump. If it could speak, it would thank you! But the only thanks you need are the great benefits that you’ll receive from heat pump maintenance:

  • Lower Energy Bills: A well-maintained heat pump operates more efficiently, leading to lower energy consumption. This can mean reduced energy bills, especially during the peak of summer when you’ll have your heat pump running almost every day.
  • Longevity: Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your heat pump. With maintenance, you can expect your heat pump to work for 10 to 15 years. Without it, you might have to replace it before its 10th birthday.
  • Fewer Breakdowns: Routine maintenance gives technicians an opportunity to identify and address potential problems in your heat pump before they lead to the system completely breaking down—and probably during one of the hottest days of the year!  
  • Reduced Repair Costs: Addressing minor issues during spring maintenance helps avoid major problems that could lead to costly repairs in summer. You’ll also avoid the inconvenience of having to schedule repairs during a busy time of year for HVAC technicians.
  • Better Comfort: A properly maintained heat pump will deliver more consistent cooling, ensuring your home stays livable during the summer. 
  • Thermostat Calibration: Part of maintenance is calibrating the thermostat(s) in your home to ensure accurate temperature readings. You’ll have more precise control over your heat pump and enjoy a more comfortable, energy-efficient home.
  • Warranty Protection: Regular professional maintenance is often a requirement for keeping the warranty on a heat pump valid. Following the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule will keep this coverage in place.

Reminder: You’ll Need Heat Pump Maintenance in Fall Too!

Because your heat pump works all around the year, switching to heating mode when you need it in winter, it needs to have two maintenance appointments each year. Fall is far away, but keep in mind to schedule maintenance for your heat pump then as well.
