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 in your home, need a regular maintenance tune-up service to help them perform at their best. When you take care of your heat pump through maintenance services, it rewards you in a number of ways:

  • Heat pump maintenance service 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 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.

When Should I Book My Heat Pump Maintenance Service?

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 air conditioning. Your home needs to have one maintenance tune-up for heating season and a second one for cooling season.

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

Even if you forget to schedule your heat pump tune-up service 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.
