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 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 regularly and clean or replace them when advised. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Determine if your coils and fans are open for maximum airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work more and can injure your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are ready and clear.
  • If plants have grown up around your outdoor unit or litter has collected, be sure to open the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s functioning properly. Simply turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until your heat pump turns 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.
