As the weather cools down in Lebanon, TN and we turn on the heat, it’s important to consider maintaining your heat pump. Fall is the perfect time to have technicians service your heat pump so that it will be running efficiently when you need it most this winter. Here are some benefits of fall heat pump maintenance.
Helps Prevent Breakdowns During Peak Usage Periods
Your heat pump works hard to keep you comfortable all winter long. Over time, the wear and tear from regular use can take its toll, leading to unexpected breakdowns. By getting your heat pump serviced in the fall, you can help prevent these breakdowns from happening when you need your heat pump the most.
Extends the Life of Your Heat Pump
Just like any other mechanical device, your heat pump has a limited lifespan, typically 15 years or so. How long it will last depends partly on the climate where it’s located.
But proper maintenance on an annual basis can help to extend the life of your heat pump into the 20-to-25-year range. By having technicians service your heat pump regularly, you’re doing all you can to keep it in the best possible condition so that it can last for many years.
Improves Efficiency and Saves You Money
When you maintain your heat pump well, it will run more efficiently. This means that it will use less energy to heat your home, which will save you money on your energy bills.
