There are lots of simple things you can do in between pro servicing to advance the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it running 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 frequently and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and uphold peak efficiency. Check to see if your coils and fans are clear for ideal airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can harm your system’s compressor. Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear. If plants have sprouted up around your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to clean the area. Test your thermostat often to guarantee that it’s operating correctly. Simply turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call. Keeping you and your family warm and comfortable matters to us.
