Q. How often should I schedule heating and cooling service for my HVAC system?
A. We recommend having your heating & cooling system serviced twice in the year to keep it working at maximum efficiency, to find and fix small problems before they become major issues, and to avoid needing service during extreme weather conditions when everyone needs help and the wait for service can be longer than normal.
A. A heat pump pulls heat out of your home in the summer, just like an air conditioning system. In the winter, the heat pump captures heat from the outside air and transfers it to your home. (Yes, even cold air has heat energy in it.) A blower fan then pushes this heat through your ductwork and your vents.
The heat of a West Chester summer takes a lot out of an air conditioner. By investing in air conditioning service early in the cooling season, you'll gain the peace of mind of knowing your system can handle the hottest weather without springing any costly surprises on you.
