Just like your car, your heating & air conditioning system requires regular maintenance to keep performing at its best and to be more energy efficient.
A heat pump runs for a nationwide average of 2500 hours annually, which is equivalent to 100,000 miles. If you drive your car 40 miles per hour for 2500 hours you will travel 100,000 miles. Now here comes the real question, would you keep your car running for 100,000 miles without any service?
*2500 hours/8760 total hours in a year
Based on the information above, your system would run 28.5% of the time. In Florida your system may run more than 17 minutes per hour.
