The importance of heat pump maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The best time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the colder season in Show Low, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a heat pump breakdown. Your heat pump will be operating hard this season to keep you warm. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. will mend any current problems and analyze and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair. Regular heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same goes for heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. in Show Low will review all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our experts will look at every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should. There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump functioning correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces added strain on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
