How Frequently Should My Heat Pump Be Serviced?
We advise calling in a specialist at least biannually—once in the fall and once in the spring. When temperatures start to fluctuate, it’s a great time for heating and cooling service.
Your equipment runs all the time to keep your family comfy. All of that effort can lead to tension or even a malfunction, especially if you neglect maintenance.
