While it may have been a while since you’ve had the heat pump in your Frisco home thoroughly reviewed by a professional HVAC technician, it’s never too late. Not only is professional maintenance good for the system’s ability to provide adequate heat, but tune-ups also help with efficiency. The sooner you have your system inspected, the sooner they will be running effectively and efficiently.

Whether there’s a small repair need, or you just need a routine check-up, a heat pump that needs repairs is less likely to last as long as a heat pump that would otherwise be in good condition. But minor repair needs can turn into large repairs quickly, and may even lead to the need for the heat pump to be replaced. Call one of the Frisco heating technicians at A#1 Air as soon as you notice any issues with your heat pump.
Charging the Refrigerant
Your heat pump uses refrigerant both in the summer and the winter. Charging the refrigerant should only be handled by a professional for several reasons. First, it is important to note that refrigerant that is not disposed of properly will eventually make its way into the environment. Without proper disposal, the refrigerant cannot be broken down into harmless by-products before it is absorbed into the soil.
Certain types of refrigerant can also burn your skin, give off noxious fumes, or leave a harmful residue. Moreover, having a technician charge the refrigerant for your heat pump will keep the system in good working condition can prevent costly service calls down the road. Call a technician if you haven’t had your heat pump serviced this year.
Cleaning Your Heat Pump
Changing air filters is only part of heat pump maintenance. Keeping the compressor and condenser coils clean is also important. Make sure that nothing is blocking the airflow from the outside. Proper airflow is vital to the operation of your heat pump. It keeps it running both safely and efficiently.
