There are lots of simple things you can do in between pro servicing to advance the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are accessible for ideal airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work more and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear.
  • If plants have budded up around your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to open the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s working properly. Merely turn it on and slowly raise 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.
