There are plenty of easy things you can do in between expert maintenance to increase 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 highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are clear for optimum airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are ready and clear.
  • If plants have sprouted up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s operating appropriately. Simply turn it on and slowly raise the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
