Springfield, IL Heat Pump Tune Up

Improve heat pump performance throughout the year with regular tune ups

Benefits of Routine Heat Pump Tune Ups

Heat pumps, just like other types of HVAC equipment, need regular maintenance tune ups to help them perform at their best. When you take care of your heat pump through maintenance, it rewards you in a number of ways:

  • Heat pump maintenance helps the system perform at its best. It remedies the effects of wear and tear caused during the previous season so your system is able to operate optimally.
  • With better performance, better energy efficiency follows. A well-maintained heat pump system uses less energy to get the job done, which results in lower heating and cooling costs for users.
  • With regular inspections performed by a NATE-certified technician, minor system issues are often caught and fixed early on. This greatly reduces the likelihood that you will experience system malfunctions over the next season, and it prevents the unfortunate damage that is done when malfunctioning HVAC systems stay in use.
  • A regular maintenance routine helps your heat pump max out its service life. When heat pumps are well cared for, they tend to last longer.

What’s Included in a Heat Pump Inspection?

When Should I Book My Heat Pump Maintenance?

Unlike furnaces and air conditioners that only need one tune up each year, heat pumps need two because they run double duty to provide both heating and cooling. You need to have one maintenance tune up for heating season and a second one for cooling season.

The best time to schedule heat pump maintenance is in the late spring or early summer going into cooling season. Before heating season, schedule maintenance during the late summer or early fall. These are ideal times because technicians are less busy, plus the work is performed before you need to run the system, eliminating the surprise possibility of a breakdown!

Even if you forget to schedule your heat pump tune ups during these ideal periods, don’t just skip them! These tune ups are needed twice a year, no matter what time of year they are performed.
