Heat Pump Tune-Up in Ogden, Utah

Heat pumps are incredibly hard-working pieces of equipment. While furnaces provide only heat and air conditioners only cooling, heat pumps operate year-round to cover both of these needs. You can help yours keep operating at maximum efficiency by scheduling a heat pump tune-up at least once a year.

When it’s time to schedule your heat pump tune-up, you need to work with an experienced HVAC professional. Give Master Electrical Service a call to schedule your next heat pump service visit. We’ve been working on these technologically advanced heating and cooling systems for years, so we know just what it takes to keep them running at optimal efficiency year-round.

What Is a Heat Pump Tune-Up?

If you’re wondering whether it’s worth scheduling annual heat pump tune-ups, it might be because you’re not completely clear on how preventative maintenance works. So, what is a heat pump tune-up? It’s a method for keeping your heating and cooling equipment clean, safe, and running at peak efficiency. The chances are good that you’ve already heard about how important it is to stay on top of basic maintenance tasks like changing filters, but our heat pump tune-up checklist extends far beyond the basics.

What to Expect During a Heat Pump Tune-Up

If the idea of scheduling annual service calls without even knowing what our HVAC techs plan to do sounds absurd, don’t worry. We agree. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive heat pump tune-up checklist for each employee, and it’s why we’re always up-front about what to expect. During your next tune-up, our technicians will:

  • Oil the motors
  • Check the belt for wear
  • Adjust belt tension as needed
  • Inspect and tighten electrical connections
  • Reapply non-conductive lubricants
  • Clean the evaporator coil
  • Clean the condenser coil and fins
  • Check the refrigerant level
  • Find and seal refrigerant leaks if necessary
  • Evaluate the ductwork
  • Test and calibrate the thermostat
  • And more

If you ever have questions about what we’re doing during a heat pump tune-up, feel free to ask. Our technicians aren’t just effective and efficient. They also place the same value as we do on professionalism and courtesy.

The Benefits of Regular Heat Pump Tune-Ups

Given that heating tune-up cost is one of the most common concerns among our clients, it’s worth starting a discussion of the benefits of routine heat pump tune-ups with a short list of the ways that they will save you money in the long run. 

Avoid Unnecessary System Failures

A tune-up can help you avoid unnecessary system failures by allowing our technicians to identify minor problems before they become more serious. If we see worn parts or any kind of minor damage, we’ll let you know. In some cases, we can replace the parts or repair the damage during the same visit. In others, you’ll need to schedule repairs. 

Keep Repair Costs Low

When it comes to heat pump tune-up vs repair costs, the difference is incredible. You’ll pay far less to have your heat pump professionally tuned up each year than you would to repair the damage that occurs from inadequate maintenance.

Reduce Replacement Frequency

Along with the question of heat pump, tune-up vs repair costs and benefits comes that of system longevity. The cost of replacing your heat pump is even greater than that of having it repaired, so you want it to last as long as possible. If you add up the heating tune-up cost from each year of ownership, it will be clear that it’s a negligible price to pay for keeping your equipment running for even just a few extra years.

Maintain Optimal Energy Efficiency

Heat pumps are touted for their energy efficiency, and with good reason. Because they don’t burn fuel to generate heat, instead pulling it from the ground, they require no fossil fuels and use less electricity than furnaces and air conditioners. However, taking full advantage of those energy efficiency improvements requires staying on top of annual tune-ups. Otherwise, worn parts, dirty coils, and minor damage all conspire to reduce the energy efficiency of your system and start driving your monthly bills back up.

When to Schedule Heat Pump Tune-Ups

It’s comparatively obvious when the best time of the year is for air conditioner or furnace tune-ups. You have a furnace tuned up in the fall and an air conditioner tuned up in the spring to make sure they’re ready for the seasons ahead. Because heat pumps perform double duty, the timing requirements are a little more ambiguous. However, most experts suggest treating your heat pump like two separate pieces of equipment and scheduling professional maintenance twice a year.
