January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with heat pump maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the winter months in Stuart, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold due to a heat pump breakdown. Your heat pump will be running hard this winter to keep you comfy. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Breathe Healthier Air will mend any existing problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Regular heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without receiving an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Breathe Healthier Air in Stuart will inspect all those moving fragments to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a failure. Our specialists will inspect every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump running efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a crucial to-do list item to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates extra tension on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing added wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
