Discovering that your New Port Richey or Tampa Bay home needs its heat pump repaired in the middle of a cold front is the least ideal, yet often most likely scenario. Scheduling heat pump maintenance is a must if you want to avoid waking up to a freezing home.
Is Heat Pump Maintenance Really Necessary?
Living in the frequently temperate climate of New Port Richey and the Tampa Bay area, many home owners forgo a home furnace in lieu of a heat pump. Marvelously efficient machines, these units simply use the same principle as your air conditioner, but instead of expelling the hot air and pumping in the cold, the reverse happens – cold air goes out, and warm air fills your home. The outdoor temperature rarely drops below 40° (the minimum effective temperature range), and running them costs less than an oil or gas furnace.
Like any other mechanical system, a heat pump will degrade over time as some general wear and tear is unavoidable during operation. However, this isn’t really a problem when you schedule regular, professional heat pump maintenance. Just like a check up with your doctor, these visits allow our experienced technicians the opportunity to ensure that each and every component of your system is in proper working condition. But if these minor issues are left unaddressed they can potentially snowball into serious concerns.
System maintenance is most effective – and affordable! – when it’s used to address problems that you weren’t even aware of, such as a part that is still functioning but is worn and needs replacement before it breaks and causes the entire system to seize (affecting a costly repair).
How Do I Know When I Need a Heat Pump Repair?
No problem with your heat pump should be considered too minor to justify a repair call to your New Port Richey or Tampa Bay residence.
You should call if:
- The price of your electric bill goes up but your usage hasn’t
- Strange sounds or odors are coming from your ventilation
- The air no longer comes out warm or some rooms aren’t heating well
- Your unit runs constantly or not at all
- Solid ice builds up on the coils and never seems to go away

The longer a problem is allowed to impact the operation of the system, the more likely it becomes that the problem will worsen, or cause damage, requiring more complex, costly repairs or even replacement!
