How to Keep Your Crestview Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is essential to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family comfortable during the Crestview chill. If you already called Gordon Air Conditioning for your annual service, you’re definitely ahead of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Chat with us at 850-250-0335 to get one scheduled.

There are many straightforward things you can do in between expert servicing to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when advised. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Determine if your coils and fans are open for optimum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are open and clear.
  • If plants have grown up by your outdoor unit or clutter has accumulated, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to ensure that it’s working appropriately. Just turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
