San Antonio Heating Tip: Benefits of a Heat Pump Tune-Up

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Even in a dry and hot climate like the one in San Antonio, having a working heat pump system that heats your home efficiently is important to many homeowners. During the summer, you may run your air conditioning system almost every day. But your heat pump system is just as important in the winter. If it breaks down, you don’t want to be left without it for very long.

One of the best ways to prevent repairs and generally take care of your heat pump is to get it inspected and tuned-up on a regular basis. That’s why at General Air Conditioning, we recommend that you have your heat pump tuned at least once a year. There are a number of benefits to heat pump tune-ups. Here are a few of them.

  • Less Repairs – When you schedule a tune-up for your heat pump, one of our expert San Antonio heating technicians will thoroughly inspect the equipment, and they will be able to detect any small problems and repair them as needed. This prevents those small issues from developing into larger, more costly repairs.
  • Increased Efficiency – Over time and with extensive use, your heat pump may begin to wear down. Some of the components may not work as well as they get dirty or start to deteriorate. But when you schedule routine tune-ups for your heating system, the technician is able to clean out any debris, replace worn out parts and lubricate moving parts. All of these things contribute to a potential increase in efficiency.
  • Extended equipment life – Many of the heat pumps that we replace for our customers were destroyed by a small problem that went unresolved for a long period of time. With regular tune-ups, those small problems will be detected and repaired. This can potentially extend the life of your heat pump system.
