January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with heat pump maintenance is so important. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it arises. While we draw near the winter months in Long Beach, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold from a heat pump malfunction. Your heat pump will be running hard this season to keep you warm. Annual heat pump maintenance from the team at YES R&M Inc. will fix any existing problems and diagnose and tend to 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 years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to heat pump maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at YES R&M Inc. in Long Beach will examine all those moving fragments to make sure they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our experts will inspect every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working 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 job to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces extra tension on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating added 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 prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unexpected bills.
