Your heat pump will be working hard this time of year to keep you warm. Regular heat pump maintenance from the team at Air Max HVAC Inc will repair any existing problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair. Routine heat pump maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Air Max HVAC Inc in Thousand Oaks will inspect all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should. There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional tension on your heat pump to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by causing extra 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The longer a problem goes unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unforeseen bills.
