Schedule Your Routine Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pump maintenance is required to keep your unit working effectively throughout the year. Although heat pumps are reliable and energy-efficient, they operate on the narrowest performance margins. Even the slightest decline in performance can result in a 25% loss of efficiency and impact your utility bill. If your heat pump hasn't been serviced recently, there's a chance you're paying too much for energy.

Getting expert heat pump service and maintenance from Bradley Mechanical is easy to ensure that your heat pump delivers maximum comfort for minimum cost. Our certified technicians have kept heating and air systems running smoothly throughout the area since 1969, and we aren't stopping anytime soon.

Protect Your Investment & Increase Your Comfort

It's important to not only invest in your heat pump system during the installation process but to continue servicing it to reap the benefits. Without regular maintenance, you may experience more frequent temperature fluctuations and energy bills rising without warning.

Proper service can also extend the life of your heat pump. The average cost to replace a heat pump, depending on the size of your home and particular needs, ranges around $5,000. Every year you go without heat pump maintenance may be inching you closer and closer to a larger expense and service. Scheduling routine heat pump maintenance is a great way to invest in the system and your own comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do heat pumps need servicing?

All heating units eventually need servicing to counter regular use's wear and tear. Made up of multiple parts, heat pumps will require continuous maintenance to replace belts and filters, tighten wiring and clean out areas that collect dust and debris. Keeping your heat pump tuned for the colder seasons helps prevent breakdowns and boosts its performance and energy efficiency.

How often should a heat pump be serviced?

A heat pump should be serviced twice a year to maintain proper performance and energy efficiency. We recommend scheduling heat pump maintenance in the spring and fall.

Who do you call for heat pump services?

Heat pump maintenance and servicing should be done by a trained technician. Like all other HVAC equipment, heat pumps are a core part of keeping your home or office warm and comfortable. A professional understands what to look for, how to identify issues that could grow over time, and when replacement is needed over another repair.
