How to Keep Your Litchfield Park Home Comfortable During Cooler Months

If you want to stay warm during the cold months in Litchfield Park, your heat pump will need some maintenance to keep running at its best. If you’ve already arranged your annual tune-up with Cooler Tymes LLC, 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 quite a few things you can do to keep your heat pump running at its maximum performance. Try these maintenance ideas to keep your heat pump on track:

  • Are your coils and fans clear for optimal airflow? Reduced airflow makes your heat pump over worked and can hurt your system’s compressor.
  • Your supply and return registers should be open and clear.
  • Check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t highlight this enough. It’s a simple way to boost the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Clear the zone around your outdoor unit if a mess has gathered or plants have dominated the zone.
  • To make sure your system is working properly, test your thermostat often. Turn it on and bit by bit increase the temperature setting until you hear your heat pump start. If you don’t hear anything, read our blog post on heat pump repair for thermostat next steps or schedule an appointment with us.
