Here on the Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning blog, we often talk about the importance of annual air conditioner tune-ups. But did you know that tune-ups during the cooling season are just as important for homeowners with heat pumps? Today we’re going to talk about what’s involved in a heat pump tune-up and why they are so beneficial for St. Louis area homeowners.
What’s involved in a heat pump tune up?
During the cooling season, a heat pump tune-up is almost exactly like an air conditioner tune-up. Your technician will inspect your heat pump for any functional problems, check refrigerant levels, perform a full-system cleaning, and more. All of these tasks will increase your heat pump’s efficiency, extend your system’s operating life and help avoid expensive repairs down the road.
Why is a heat pump tune-up so important?
You probably invested in a heat pump because you want to enjoy the year-round energy savings that they provide. But without proper maintenance, your heat pump likely won’t perform the way you expect it to. By getting a tune-up from Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning, you can ensure that your unit will operate at its peak performance and efficiency.
Unlike air conditioners and furnaces, heat pumps work year-round to both heat and cool your home. This makes it all the more important to schedule a tune-up so that you can take care of any problems your system may have developed.
When is the best time to get a heat pump tune-up?
Because summer has already started here in the St. Louis area, the best time to get a heat pump tune-up was yesterday! But that doesn’t mean that it’s too late to take care of your unit. If you haven’t already had your tune-up for this year’s cooling season, schedule one as soon as you can so that you can enjoy its benefits all summer long.
