How to Keep Your West Palm Beach Home Comfortable During Cooler Months

If you want to stay cozy during the cold months in West Palm Beach, your heat pump will demand some maintenance to keep operating at its best. If you’ve already booked your annual tune-up with Summit Air Conditioning Inc, you’re right on schedule. Don’t be too concered if you haven’t, there’s still time! Give us a call at [[phonenumber]] to schedule your appointment.

Between professional tune-ups, there are many things you can do to keep your heat pump running at its best performance. Try these maintenance tips to keep your heat pump on track:

  • Are your coils and fans clear for optimal airflow? Lessened airflow makes your heat pump work too hard and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Your supply and return registers should be open and clear.
  • Check your filters routinely and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t emphasize this enough. It’s an easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Clear the zone around your outdoor unit if clutter has collected or plants have taken over the area.
  • To be sure your system is working well, test your thermostat frequently. Turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until you hear your heat pump start. If you don’t hear anything, check out our blog post on heat pump repair for thermostat guidance or schedule an appointment with us.
