If you have a ductless heat pump system installed in your home, then you’ve likely come to appreciate the targeted comfort, energy efficiency, and heating-cooling flexibility it offers at the push of a button. Heat pumps — especially those from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating — are an excellent alternative to traditional heating and cooling options; but just like any other type of HVAC system, they need regular care and attention to run at their best.
How Often to Schedule Heat Pump Maintenance
Many homeowners along Massachusetts’ North Shore and New Hampshire’s Seacoast ask us how often they should schedule maintenance for their heat pumps. Because heat pumps work twice as hard as conventional HVAC options like boilers, furnaces, and air conditioners (they heat and cool all year long, after all), we recommend scheduling two tune-ups per year: one in the spring and one in the fall. Even if you have a durable Mitsubishi Electric heat pump, this guideline still applies.
So, if you haven’t yet scheduled a spring tune-up for your heat pump, now is the time to do so!
The Benefits of Regular Heat Pump Maintenance
“Why do I need heat pump maintenance?” you ask. A little care and attention every six months will go further than you might think. A tune-up includes adjustments to improve efficiency, cleaning and lubrication of various parts, and important tests to ensure that your heat pump is operating safely. When you schedule maintenance for your system every six months, you can expect benefits like:
Enhanced indoor comfort
More energy efficient operation
Lower heating & cooling costs
Reduced need for repairs
Less risk of a breakdown
A longer lasting system
Greater peace of mind
Gain Even Greater Peace of Mind with a Service Agreement
Few things are more frustrating than turning on your heat pump system, to find that it only blows warm air. Scheduling spring heat pump service allows your heat pump technician to catch hidden issues early on — and optimize your system for maximum energy savings — before the summer heat hits North Shore MA and Seacoast NH.
