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 swap them when advised. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain top efficiency. Determine if your coils and fans are open for optimum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can harm your system’s compressor. Be sure your supply and return registers are ready and clear. If plants have sprouted up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to open the area. Test your thermostat frequently to ensure that it’s working appropriately. Simply turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on.
