4 Heat Pump Maintenenace Tips

When a heating system malfunction stops your home from reaching or maintaining comfortable, safe temperatures, you should act fast, and not wait to have your system assessed and repaired by an expert Cincinnati Premier technician. Below are 4 common heating repairs:

Seal Your Thermostat

Inspect your thermostat’s wire-entry-point to make sure there isn’t a gap there letting air in. If there is a gap allowing air through, use caulking to keep the air drifting in and out from interfering with the device’s ability to provide an accurate reading.

Check Your Air Ducts

Open up air registers and check inside them to see if your air ducts are dirty. Because air ducts tend to be the source of dirt and dust buildup during the off-season, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s not out of hand. If you discover it is dirty inside, you can use a vacuum cleaner (one with a HEPA filter would be best) to clean it out.

If it’s too much or too far to reach, check with us about our system-wide air duct cleaning service, which has limited availability.

Clean the Area

Remove plantlife, weeds, yard debris, and other foliage from your outdoor intake and exhaust vents to make sure nothing is hindering the airflow. As a general rule of thumb for anything located near this area around an outdoor unit, we suggest always keeping a three-foot radius of open space. 

Utilize AC Covers

When wintertime is approaching and you’re done using your A/C, cover it to protect its coils from falling ice and other extreme weather while you aren’t using it. This cover need not cost much, and should not be airtight, so using a tarp is out of the question. However, a trash can cover or a small sheet of plywood secured by bungee cords is ideal.

We Can Repair Your Heat Pump!

If a homeowner doesn’t keep up with maintenance regularly, their heat pump becomes more susceptible to problems at the worst times possible — when the unit is most needed, when it’s working hard to keep the home comfortable. This is usually when the weather outside is hottest or coldest and HVAC companies are at their busiest.

Because having to pay for emergency repair services and replacement parts can cost more during an emergency, having a heat pump serviced according to schedule enables a homeowner to avoid these unforeseen costs to save more money in the long run. Because of this, a homeowner can enjoy peace of mind in addition to the benefits of greater energy efficiency and lesser monthly energy costs. Additionally, this prolongs the system’s lifespan, enabling a homeowner to reap a bigger return on their investment because they will not need to purchase a new system as soon as they would have to if they had neglected maintenance.

To give you a better idea of some of the kinds of things we do during a heating system maintenance call, we present the following list:

  • Cleaning fan’s blower motor on the indoor unit
  • Confirm proper and adequate ventilation
  • Checking for code violations and safety risks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide and gas leaks
  • Clean and adjust ignition/pilot assembly
  • Checking function and setting on indoor unit fan motor
  • Examining, tightening and adjusting electrical fittings
  • Cleaning and adjusting main gas burners on furnace
