The Benefits of Heat Pump Maintenance

Many may consider a heat pump maintenance visit one of those “must do” obligations, but in actuality the service does a whole lot to make your life easier. Professional maintenance from GAC Services can bring you:

  • Higher heat pump energy efficiency. A well maintained heat pump system runs cleaner and get the job done faster, and more efficiently. This means the pump requires less fuel to get the job done, directly reducing those monthly cooling and heating costs.
  • Better heating and cooling reliability. Maryland experiences its fair share of weather extremes, and an unprepared system can quickly fall behind. But if you’ve been getting routine service you can expect your system to handle anything nature tosses your way.
  • Fewer risks of a breakdown. This service gives our team the opportunity to suss out problems early. We do a comprehensive component and electrical check, as well as calibrations that will keep mid-season breakdowns at bay.
  • Lower repair costs. The most costly repair call include component failure, parts replacement, and electrical failures. All things our team will address during a maintenance visit, making the parts last longer and work more effectively.
  • Longer heat pump lifespan. A heat pump is a good investment, but it’s still a considerable one, too. That means you want it to last as long as possible, and with maintenance services you can expect a solid fifteen plus years from your pump.

How Often Should I Schedule Heat Pump Maintenance?

Most single use systems typically need service during the season they are in use. For a central system that means in the spring, and for a furnace it would be the fall. But a heat pump needs service twice a year. You rely on it for both heating and cooling all year long, and that means it works twice as hard as anything else. If you want perfect cooling and reliable heating, be sure to set up a service seasonally!

The easiest way to do this is by setting up a Prime Maintenance Membership with GAC Services. Members of our maintenance plans gain additional member perks, priority services, as well as complete, no-worry tune-up services for both summer and winter.
