Try these heat pump maintenance tips: Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and preserve maximum efficiency. Determine if your coils and fans are clear for optimum 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 grown up by your outdoor unit or a mess has gathered, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee that it’s functioning correctly. Just turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until your heat pump turns on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on heat pump repair or extra thermostat tips, or give us a call. Keeping you and your family warm and cozy matters to us.
