There are plenty of easy things you can do in between pro servicing to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips: Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and maintain top efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are clear for maximum airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can harm your system’s compressor. Certify that your supply and return registers are open and clear. If plants have sprouted up around your outdoor unit or a mess has collected, be sure to open the area. Test your thermostat often to guarantee that it’s working properly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until your heat pump turns on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call. Keeping you and your family warm and comfy matters to us.
