There are plenty of easy things you can do in between pro tune-ups to advance the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in peak shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips: Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and uphold top efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are clear for optimum airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can injure your system’s compressor. Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear. If plants have grown up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or extra thermostat tips, or give us a call. Keeping you and your family warm and comfy matters to us.
