3 Tips to Keep Your Heat Pump Running All Year
Thursday, May 19, 2016

Daily use and the changing of the seasons can take a toll on your heating and cooling system, but the right safety and prevention steps can help prevent breakdowns. What you need are three tips to help keep your heat pump running year-round. So here they are:

Tip #1: Stay on Top of the Filter Situation

The air filter on your heating and air conditioning system is critical to keeping it running right, no matter what kind of system you have. When it comes to your heat pump, a dirty filter will make your heat pump work harder to push the air through which can cause extra wear and tear, potentially shortening the life of your system and causing breakdowns. It will also decrease the energy efficiency of the heat pump.

Tip #2: Keep the Vegetation in Check

The outdoor component of your heat pump will be affected by vegetation overgrowth. If leaves, grasses, bushes, or shrubbery start to move into the space your heat pump occupies, it can lead to a clogged fan and other issues, especially if it starts to compromise the way the heat pump is functioning. Clear any vegetation away from the system components to make sure it doesn’t affect proper function.

Tip #3: Make Sure It’s Getting Regular Maintenance

One of the best ways to keep your heat pump humming along throughout the year is regular maintenance. Although you can do some of the basics yourself, when a certified HVAC technician checks, cleans, adjusts, and maintains your heat pump, they’re able to ensure there are no leaks, issues with the motor, belts, or other moving parts, the thermostat, or the electrical.

If you take care of your heat pump, it will take care of you all year. For more information on safety and prevention to keep your HVAC system running as it should, contact the pros at All City Heat & Air.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
