Why Inspection Is an Important Part of Heat Pump Maintenance

Spring is just about here, and while it will likely be a few more weeks before we switch from heating to cooling, it’s always a good idea to get your heat pump ahead with a spring maintenance appointment. There are a lot of different tasks performed during a maintenance visit, but one of the first and very important ones is the thorough inspection of your heat pump system in Peyton, CO. Many people equate maintenance with a quick once-over, but that is not the case when you hire professionals to perform maintenance on your heat pump, like the ones at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning.

The Purpose of Inspection

The first step your technician will take during a maintenance appointment is to thoroughly inspect your heat pump system. This includes the entire unit, the valves, electrical connections and connection to ductwork, if there are any. The reason for this is simple: thorough inspection helps the technician to detect any existing or developing problems with your heat pump system. One of the benefits of a maintenance appointment is to help prevent repair, and a thorough inspection can reveal such things as loose, frayed or corroded wiring, dirty air filters, low refrigerant levels and problems with your fan. Small things, like the wiring and a loose fan belt, will be repaired during the appointment. If there is a larger issues, such as a refrigerant leak, you’ll be alerted so that you can make additional plans to have the problem repaired. This kind of attention to detail helps you get ahead of potential repairs and manage existing ones before they can lead to malfunction or even shutdown of your heat pump.

Without inspection, your technician can’t get a clear idea of what’s happening with your heat pump system. The inspection process also allows the technician to see what has to be cleaned, adjusted and lubricated during the maintenance appointment. Your heat pump runs year-round, so it’s recommended that you schedule your heat pump for maintenance bi-annually.
