Spring, when one can still bear the heat in Las Vegas, NV, provides the perfect time for a heat pump tuneup. Know that experts recommend such a tuneup once a year; many manufacturers require it, too, or else their warranties become void. Don’t miss the following benefits to scheduling heat pump tuneups regularly:
Lower Energy Bills
Maintenance takes care of a host of small problems that keep a heat pump from running efficiently, such as dirty coils, out-of-balance parts and loose wiring. It can also ensure that your thermostat reads the indoor temperatures correctly. As a result, it turns the system on and off at the appropriate times.
You may see a significant decrease in your energy bill as the heat pump will waste little time and energy in doing its job. Note that one sign of a failing heat pump will be significant increases in the energy bill.
Fewer Major Repairs
You’ll save money on AC repairs because maintenance nips a number of smaller problems in the bud. Let’s take one example to illustrate. Without maintenance, a dirty coil or heat exchanger may cause the heat pump to overheat, putting wear on it and requiring you to buy a new motor before long, which is an expensive repair.
Longer Life for the System
With fewer issues to strain and wear down the heat pump, you can put off a system replacement for years to come, depending on its current age. Heat pumps should ideally last up to 20 years.
