January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with heat pump maintenance is so vital. The best time to end a problem is before it arises. While we move into the wintertime in Fort Lauderdale, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a heat pump breakdown. Your heat pump will be working hard this winter to keep you comfy. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at Solar Air Inc. will mend any existing problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Annual heat pump maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without obtaining an oil change – the same goes for heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Solar Air Inc. in Fort Lauderdale will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will inspect every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump running correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes extra strain on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unexpected breakdowns, which come with unforeseen bills.
