Try these heat pump maintenance tips: Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress 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 preserve maximum efficiency. Check to see if your coils and fans are open for optimum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can injure your system’s compressor. Confirm that your supply and return registers are ready and clear. If plants have budded up near your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clean the area. Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on.
