Servicing your heat pump will help prevent future problems, ensure your family’s safety, and save on energy costs. Heat pumps are exceptional sources of heat and cooling.
With proper heat pump maintenance, you can save an average of 10 – 25% on your annual energy costs. On the other side of the equation, by neglecting your heat pump, you can damage your system’s compressor or other components, taking costs in the wrong direction.
What should I expect during anA-TEMP heat pump tune-up?
All manufacturers recommend annual maintenance and care by a licensed HVAC contractor. During an A-TEMP 21-Point Precision Tune-Up, we will record measurements and observations, and identify and recommend any corrective actions needed to maintain the system’s ability to provide clean, conditioned air to your home for its normal expected lifetime.
