Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pumps are a great way to heat and cool your home, but they need regular maintenance to perform at their best.

Whether you have an air-source, ground-source, or water-source heat pump, you can benefit from professional heat pump maintenance services from Fogarty Heating & Ventilation.

Our HVAC experts have the experience, skills, and tools to handle any heat pump issue, from minor repairs to major overhauls, to help you optimize your heat pump's efficiency and extend its lifespan.

Why Do You Need Heat Pump Maintenance Services?

Heat pumps work by transferring heat from one place to another, using electricity as the driving force. They can provide both heating and cooling for your home, depending on the season and your preferences. However, like any other mechanical system, they can wear out over time and lose their effectiveness.

Some of the common problems that can affect your heat pump include:

  • Dirty or clogged filters, coils, and fans
  • Low or leaking refrigerant
  • Faulty electric controls or wiring
  • Loose or broken belts and motors
  • Improper thermostat settings or calibration

These problems can reduce your heat pump's performance, increase your energy bills, and cause discomfort in your home. They can also lead to more serious issues, such as compressor failure or fire hazards.

Benefits Of Regular Heat Pump Maintenance

By scheduling routine heat pump maintenance services, you can prevent many problems from occurring or worsening. You can also enjoy the following benefits:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Lower operating costs
  • Enhanced indoor comfort and air quality
  • Longer system lifespan and fewer breakdowns
  • Higher home value and resale potential
  • Compliance with the manufacturer's warranty requirements

How Often Do You Need Heat Pump Maintenance?

The frequency of heat pump maintenance depends on several factors, such as the type, age, and usage of your system. However, as a general rule of thumb, we recommend that you have your heat pump serviced at least twice a year.

The best time to schedule your heat pump maintenance is before the start of each heating and cooling season. This way, you can ensure that your system is ready to handle the changing weather conditions and keep your home comfortable all year round.
