There are many easy things you can do in between expert maintenance to advance 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 frequently and clean or change them when advised. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and maintain 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 injure your system’s compressor.
  • Certify that your supply and return registers are open and clear.
  • If plants have budded up by your outdoor unit or a mess has collected, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Just turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
