There are plenty of easy things you can do in between pro servicing to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it functioning in the best 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 change them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain top efficiency.
  • Determine if your coils and fans are accessible for maximum airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear.
  • If plants have sprouted up near your outdoor unit or clutter has accumulated, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to ensure that it’s operating correctly. Just turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
