Regular heat pump maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same applies to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. in Opelika will review all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our technicians will inspect every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should. There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump running efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes added strain on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing extra 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The longer a problem goes unattended, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills.
