A fall or winter HVAC system tune-up gets your heat pump ready for winter in Tavernier, FL. During the tune-up, our service technician checks the refrigerant charge, airflow, electric terminals, lubrication of moving parts, electric controls, thermostat operation, ducts, blower and all other components of the heat pump. Below are some of the reasons why a tune-up is important.
Avoid Emergency Outages
Simple issues such as clogging and overheating can shut down your system without notice. Because of the high number of calls to heating service providers in winter, you may not get the quick emergency services you need. A professional tune-up ensures that your heat pump is ready for a prolonged winter without emergency breakdowns.
If there are minor damages seen during the tune-up, our service technicians will recommend repair or replacement to get the system ready. This will help in lengthening the lifespan of your HVAC system.
Enhance Energy Efficiency
A dirty and neglected heat pump and its components works harder to heat a home. During a tune-up, our technician will perform a number of tasks, including testing airflow, inspecting the ductwork, checking thermostat calibration, cleaning or changing your system air filter, lubricating moving parts, tightening loose connections and testing system controls. These tasks ensure there is a smooth operation of the heat pump, which translates to a higher energy efficiency.
A tuned-up system operates more efficiently, thereby warming a home faster to keep your comfortable. Further, when the technician cleans the air handler and condenser, they remove the loose particles and debris that accumulates during summer and fall that impedes the efficiency of your system.
Fall or winter HVAC system maintenance should be one of two tune-ups for your pump every year. Call Houston Air in Tavernier, FL, for heat pump services and other HVAC installation, repair and maintenance services.
