Your heat pump provides you with the warm air that you need to keep you comfortable in your Dayton area home during the winter. Scheduling annual service can help extend the life of your heat pump as well as give you piece of mind that you can rely on your heat when you need it the most (or cool, conditioned air in the summer).
Ultimately, your furnace filter should be changed every two to three months to prevent accumulation of dirt and other particles inside your HVAC system. Routine maintenance will allow for all the internal components to be cleaned thoroughly to prevent your heat pump from overworking itself to meet your needs.
Ductwork should be inspected annually for leaks that would prevent proper air flow in your home. You can lose warm air from these leaks, and this increases your overall energy consumption and monthly bills. Ducts should also be cleaned periodically to prevent particle buildup.
Make sure that when you find a temperature that works well for your home, you stick with it. Changing the thermostat too often can cause your heat pump to overwork.
The internal parts such as the blower motor should be lubricated and serviced.
Keep vegetation from overgrowing your outdoor unit. This can prevent proper air flow and allow debris to be sucked into the unit.
