While many homes have a furnace and an air conditioner to keep their houses comfortable all year long, many have opted for a heat pump in recent years. Heat pumps are ideal for the Carolinas because winters here aren’t so cold. Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling and are extremely energy efficient. But like all HVAC equipment, heat pump maintenance should be performed on a regular basis by a professional. This keeps your heat pump performing efficiently while protecting your investment.
You should schedule heat pump maintenance with a professional HVAC company such as A+ Heating & Cooling – Electrical once a year. Ideally, you should do this in the fall before it gets cold in the winter. If you use your heat pump to cool your house as well, getting it tuned up in the spring before it gets hot in the summer is also recommended.
