“Winter” in St. Augustine, FL is a somewhat debatable season, but that’s what makes our area such a good climate for using a heat pump: the consistent warm temperatures. When we do experience cooler temperatures, you can easily change your heat pump from cooling to heating by pressing a button. The bottom line, though, with a heat pump system is that it is a 2-in-1 device, so it runs for most of the year. This is very different from having two separate systems, one providing heat and the other providing cool air. Owning a system that does it all means that system needs bi-annual maintenance to stay on track, and our fall weather provides the perfect window of opportunity to have your heat pump professionally maintained by the HVAC pros at Climate Masters.
What Happens During a Heat Pump Maintenance Appointment?
When our pros perform maintenance on your heat pump, the appointment is a full tune-up of the system. First, our technician will thoroughly inspect the system to find any outstanding problems. Small items like a corroded wire can be repaired during the appointment, but bigger issues will require a separate repair appointment. The oil in your system will be changed along with the air filter, the fans and their motors will be checked and your refrigerant level will be checks. The coils will be cleaned and the compressor will be inspected and checked. All electronics will be checked and your system will be tested for performance.
Why Does This Matter?
Your heat pump system accrues a great deal of wear and tear during operation. This wear and tear drags your system down and makes it use more energy to operate; it also compromises the overall performance of the system. Take advantage of the cooling fall weather and let the HVAC experts at Climate Masters maintain your heat pump system – call us today!
