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 increase the airflow through your heat pump and preserve maximum efficiency. Determine if your coils and fans are clear for ideal airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can damage your system’s compressor. Confirm that your supply and return registers are exposed and clear. If plants have grown up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat often to guarantee that it’s working properly. Merely turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on.
