January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with heat pump maintenance is so important. The best time to halt a problem is before it starts.

Your heat pump will be running hard this season to keep you comfy. Routine heat pump maintenance from the team at Connolly Electric & Mechanical will repair any current problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to heat pump repair.

Regular heat pump maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same applies to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Connolly Electric & Mechanical in Cottonwood & Prescott will examine all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our experts will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump operating correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional effort 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 producing 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unforeseen bills.
