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 replace them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and preserve top efficiency. Determine if your coils and fans are accessible for maximum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can harm your system’s compressor. Certify that your supply and return registers are ready and clear. If plants have budded up near your outdoor unit or litter has collected, be sure to clean the area. Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee that it’s working appropriately. Just turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until your heat pump turns on.
