Heat Pump Maintenance
You're hot, then you're cold..."
As Canadian carbon footprint goals move forwards, these types of units are going to be more and more common.
As heat pumps are basically air conditioners that can operate in reverse, a lot of the system checks that are required to keep an ac running well are required by heat pumps. Since they're both cooling the house in summer, and heating it in winter, they're pulling double-duty. Maintenance for these is best booked in the spring/summer season.
