Heat Pump Maintenance Tips
Routine inspections and maintenance are the best ways to maximize the life of your heat pump, but the following steps can also be taken to further improve its efficiency.
- Check air filters monthly. Clean or replace as needed.
- Set your thermostat to one temperature. Constant adjusting can cause higher utility costs and force your heat pump to work harder.
- During the heating season, try not to set your thermostat below 65 degrees
- When your heat pump is in cooling mode, try not to set your thermostat below 70 degrees and this can cause the indoor coil to freeze and cause condensation in your house.
- Make it a habit to look at your outdoor heat pump during the cold winter months for sign of excessive ice or snow build up
- If excessive ice does build up, turn the thermostat to emergency heat or the off position and remove the snow or ice. Warm water can help melt the snow or ice as well as cold water from a hose. Never use hot water to melt snow from your outdoor heat pump.
- Keep shrubs pruned back 18” from all sides to allow for proper airflow and servicing
