Whether it’s the dog days of summer or the coldest week of winter, your dependable heat pump will keep you comfortable.

At Gold Star Services, we specialize in year-round heat pump maintenance designed to prevent potential issues down the line. In this article, we discuss the steps our pros will take to ensure your system is running efficiently.

An effective HVAC system is vital to your comfort during any season. Make sure your home is outfitted with the best!

Why Is Heat Pump Maintenance Important?

On an average cold day, your heat pump will be running for 24 hours. It’s a constant cycle of drawing in and heating air before using a blower to disperse warm air amongst your rooms via your home’s ducts. This process puts a lot of strain on your unit’s internal machinery. Left unchecked, minor issues can lead to major complications, grinding the system to a halt.

Prevent unexpected breakdowns with the Gold Star Services Comprehensive Maintenance Agreement. Not only does this plan unlock access to priority service and membership pricing, our pros will be on hand to conduct important maintenance checks that you shouldn’t attempt to DIY. Here’s a quick glance at our heating equipment checklist:

  • Inspect thermostat, fan control, gas valve operation, defrost control, and ignition system
  • Replace 1” air filter
  • Inspect furnace safety controls, back up heat elements, electrical connections, and sequencer operation
  • Wax furnace cabinet
  • Inspect all circuit breakers
  • Test cycle for proper operation
  • Inspect pressure, heat exchanger, and temperature rise
  • Inspect for gas leaks
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Inspect volt and amps on motors
  • Inspect reversing valve operation

At Gold Star Services, our comfort specialists will keep a close eye on your HVAC system to ensure you are never caught off guard.
