There are plenty of simple things you can do in between expert maintenance to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in tip top shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when advised. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and uphold top efficiency.
  • Check to see if your coils and fans are clear for ideal airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Confirm that your supply and return registers are ready and clear.
  • If plants have grown up around your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee that it’s working appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
