With summer now over, you’re probably thankful that you have a pool heater installed to keep your swimming pool warm during the cooler weather. A properly installed pool heater will ensure that you receive the most use possible from your pool during the year, even through the winter.
Your pool heater, however, may not be ready for the work it will need to do. During the fall is an excellent time to schedule that important regular maintenance so the heater not only keeps the pool comfortable, but also won’t drain extra energy. Our team at Air on Demand offers quality maintenance service for pool heaters in Coral Gables, FL and the surrounding areas, so contact us today to arrange for your annual inspection and tune-up visit.
Why You Need Pool Heater Maintenance
A pool heater has maintenance needs similar to any home heating system: like furnaces, heat pumps, and boilers, a pool heater must have an annual check-up and inspection to see that it will work throughout the cooler months. Maintenance is also necessary to see that the pool heater lives up to its estimated lifespan.
Most pool heaters work through technology similar to that of a heat pump or air conditioner, and they need yearly service to see that their most crucial component—the compressor—is not in danger of burning out. Should a compressor burn out, the entire pool heater will usually need to be replaced. Electrical components in pool heaters will also start to wear down without maintenance, and will sometimes require replacements. Technicians take special care to investigate electrical components in a pool heater.
What Happens During Pool Heater Maintenance
When you contact us for a regular maintenance session for a pool heater, one of our skilled technicians will run through an 8-point checklist to see that the system works its best and does not require any repairs. The specific types of checks done with depend on the type of pool heater you have.
A technician will check on the refrigerant pressure, check and clean contacts, capacitors, the condenser coil, fan motors, and see that the compressor is working without extra strain. The technician will finish the session with a system efficiency test and a check on the temperature input and outflow. If anything appears amiss, the technician will advise you on repairs and parts replacement, and then help arrange for the work necessary.
