Prepare Your Heat Pump Before Winter Arrives

As the dog days gradually wrapping up and temperatures going down, you know you'll feel the chill soon. Don't wait for winter to take over before you start checking your heat pump's condition. Now is the perfect time to perform preventative measures that will ensure your heat pump to operate at maximum potential during the cold days.

Remove Unnecessary Items Around the Heat Pump

Clear this area from items like yard tools, leaves and other debris that may cause potential airflow problems. Move them away to allow maximum air flow and for it to run efficiently.

Filter Change

A dirty air filter can cause air flow obstruction through the HVAC system. This will cause the equipment to overwork and use up more energy. As a result, you will be charged more on your utility bill. Air filters are recommended to be cleaned every 1-6 months depending on the type of the filter and the amount of accumulated dirt.

Proper Use of Thermostat Settings

The thermostat has 3 settings namely: heat, cold and emergency heat. Always remember to turn your thermostat to heat mode and not the emergency heat mode, the first time you use the heat pump in fall. Emergency heat mode sources its heat from the furnace and is only intended when the heat pump is not working properly or iced up. Using the emergency heat mode will cost you more.

Schedule Annual Maintenance Earlier

Have a HVAC technician check your unit. Make sure to schedule its annual maintenance before the temperature drops. You will likely have a hard time booking an appointment if you wait until winter as it is one of the busiest time of the year for the HVAC industry. The annual maintenance will help your heat pump to perform more efficiently as it prevents malfunctions related to dirt buildup. This will also help extend the life span of your unit.
