There are lots of simple things you can do in between professional maintenance to increase the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when advised. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Determine if your coils and fans are clear for ideal airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously 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 litter has gathered, be sure to open the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to guarantee that it’s working correctly. Just turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
