We love heat pumps here in the Tampa Bay Area. There are few comfort systems more suited to the Florida climate: powerful air conditioning for the long summers, and energy efficient heating to handle the short cold periods. A heat pump is the comfort you want, when you want it, without paying too much.
But if a heat pump doesn’t receive regular maintenance from professionals during the year, it can soon become expensive to run and will turn unreliable. It may even fail years before it’s time. Unlike a standard air conditioner, which needs annual maintenance, a heat pump needs bi-annual maintenance. Yes, that means you need to schedule maintenance service for it in the fall as well as the spring.
