Try these heat pump maintenance tips: Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain peak efficiency. Check to see if your coils and fans are accessible for ideal airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work more and can injure your system’s compressor. Confirm that your supply and return registers are open and clear. If plants have grown up near your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat frequently to ensure that it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on.
