Oct 9, 2014

When the fall weather arrives in the Orlando area and the nights get chilly you will be thinking of switching your heat pump from the air conditioning setting to the heat setting.

Don’t be caught off guard one chilly evening to find that something is not working properly with your heat pump.

Regular maintenance is important to the efficient running of your HVAC system. Some heat pump housekeeping you can do on your own includes:

  • Getting rid of overgrown weeds and shrubs around the system.
  • Replacing the air filter.
  • Spraying off the coils and clearing any branches or twigs that may have fallen into the fan or condenser.

Relying on the experience of well trained technicians to perform your fall heat pump maintenance will give you peace of mind on chilly winter nights. A well trained service technician will perform standard maintenance that includes:

  • Checking the refrigerant level.
  • Checking the wiring in the heat pump.
  • Checking overall system performance.
  • Checking evaporator coils and cleaning the drain line.

Having your fall heat pump maintenance check will give you a chance to have your system in good working order so that you don’t end up with a heating system emergency on a cold winter evening. Also consider having an annual service agreement with a trustworthy and professional company gives you the homeowner, peace of mind.
