Why get a Maintenance?

Heat pumps are intricate systems that require regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance. Scheduling annual maintenance is not just recommended—it’s essential. For the best results, aim to service your heat pump in both the fall and spring.

Benefits of Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance of your heat pump brings several significant benefits:

  • Reduce the Chance of System Failure: Frequent servicing helps prevent unexpected breakdowns.
  • Maintain Energy Efficiency: Keep your energy bills low by ensuring your system runs efficiently.
  • Improve Air Quality: Regular maintenance helps keep your indoor air clean and healthy.

Moreover, many heat pump manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep their warranties valid. Accutemp’s annual maintenance service can save you money by avoiding costly repairs and premature equipment failure. Components such as heat pump compressors, reversing valves, and coils are expensive to replace, but regular maintenance can significantly reduce the risk of failure.

Comprehensive 21-Point Inspection

Our 21-point inspection ensures that all aspects of your heat pump are functioning correctly and efficiently. This preventive service includes checking:

  • Refrigerant Levels: Ensuring optimal levels for efficient operation.
  • Return Air Temperatures: Verifying proper temperatures for peak performance.
  • Coils and Drains: Inspecting for cleanliness and blockages.
  • Motors and System Pressures: Ensuring all mechanical parts are in good working condition.

By detecting leaks or signs of wear early, we help extend the life of your unit and maintain its efficiency.

Affordable Annual Maintenance

We offer our comprehensive annual maintenance inspection for $199.00 per heat pump. This service is a small investment that can prevent larger, more expensive issues down the line.

Peace of Mind with Annual Reminders

To make maintenance even easier, once you schedule your first maintenance, you’ll be added to our mailing list. This means you’ll receive yearly reminders to schedule your future maintenance, ensuring your heat pump remains in top condition year after year.

Tips for Troubleshooting Common Heat Pump Issues

At Accutemp, we understand the importance of having your heating and cooling systems running smoothly at all times. That’s why we’re available for emergency service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, before reaching out to our team, there are a few common issues you might be able to troubleshoot at home.

  1. Change & Clean Your Filter

A clogged filter is one of the most common causes of issues with heating and cooling systems. If your filter is covered in dirt or dust, airflow through your system will be restricted, and it won’t run optimally. Here’s what you can do:

  • Inspect the Filter: If the filter looks dirty or clogged, it’s time to clean or replace it.
  • Regular Replacement: Accutemp recommends changing your filter three times a year. During our annual maintenance visit, we’ll check and replace your filter if needed. We can also teach you how to do it yourself for future reference.
  1. Ensure Your Thermostat is Set Correctly

Before calling for service, make sure your thermostat settings are correct:

  • Temperature Settings: Double-check that your thermostat is set to the desired temperature.
  • Mode Settings: Ensure it’s set to the correct mode (heating or cooling).
  1. Check Your Thermostat Batteries

If your thermostat screen is blank, the issue might be as simple as dead batteries:

  • Replace Batteries: Remove the cover and replace the batteries. Typically, this needs to be done twice a year.
  1. Check Your Electrical Panel

If your system isn’t turning on at all, you might be dealing with a power issue:

  • Inspect the Breaker: Check your electrical panel for a breaker switch labeled for the furnace and/or heat pump. If it’s tripped, reset it.
  • Wait and See: After resetting, give your system a few minutes to restart, as many systems have automatic delays built in.

If you’ve tried these steps and your system is still not working, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Call Accutemp at 250-475-2665 or send us a message—we’re here to help!
