Do Heat Pumps Need More Repairs?

Monday, July 29th, 2019

stopwatchWe are big proponents of heat pumps around here. These systems really are incredible, providing homeowners with the ability to heat and cool their homes with just one effective, efficient system. These systems are also quite reliable, provided that they are installed and serviced by skilled, trained professionals. They are the same as any other heating or cooling system in this regard. Where they differ, of course, is that heat pumps don’t just operate during one season of the year.

Because of this, some homeowners worry that the wear and tear on the system is going to result in more frequent repairs than you would need with designated heating or air conditioning system. The real question shouldn’t be whether heat pumps need more repairs, though. It’s if they need more maintenance. And the answer to that is yes. Because one system is doing the heating and cooling, you’ll need a tune-up twice a year.

Can Duct Cleaning Improve My HVAC System in Cherry Hill, NJ?

Monday, September 16th, 2013

When it comes to the system of ducts that distributes hot or cool air from your HVAC system to your house, out of sight really can be out of mind. Unfortunately, when dust and dirt build up in your ductwork, it can impact the efficiency of the whole HVAC system. That’s a problem in Cherry Hill, NJ during our hot, humid summers.

Dirt and dust can build up in your ducts as a matter of course. Leaks or breaches in the ductwork can cause an influx of particles, as can dust or debris from inside the HVAC system itself. A thorough cleaning of the ducts will take care of the dirt, as can routine maintenance on the system itself.

When you schedule duct cleaning, make sure you hire a qualified professional. They will make sure the process covers the entire duct system, including vents and grills if possible. More importantly, the specialist will hunt down the source of the dirt and dust – such as cracks in the ductwork – and correct it. Otherwise, the cleaning merely delays the inevitable, as dust and debris will son build up again.

Luckily, the results will speak for themselves. Not only will a duct cleaning improve the quality of your indoor air, but the increased air flow allows your HVAC system to function more efficiently, saving you money with your monthly energy bills. If the time has come for a duct cleaning in your household, trust the job to SPS Mechanical. We pride ourselves on absolute customer satisfaction and have the know-how to do the job right. Our technicians serve the whole of Cherry Hill, NJ, so don’t hesitate to call us!
