You’ll save more money on utility bills if you have an efficient heating and air conditioning system. When your equipment performs optimally, it uses less power to keep your Florence, KY home at a pleasant temperature. Here are 3 ways to ensure you are maximizing your heat pump efficiency.
Change Your Filters
Air filter maintenance is an important aspect of keeping any HVAC system running efficiently and improving overall indoor air quality. It is critical to replace or clean the filter in heat pumps every three months, particularly if the system runs year-round. If you or a member of your household suffers from asthma, allergies or respiratory disorders, it may be necessary to change the filter more regularly.
Keep Your Heat Pump Running
Unlike furnaces, which typically just run during cold weather, it is generally more economical to run a heat pump all year. Switching between other HVAC equipment and a heat pump will increase your utility expenses unnecessarily; given that a heat pump can provide both heating and cooling, it often makes sense to use this single system.
Clear Debris Off the Outside Unit
Leaves and twigs might become entangled in your outside unit. Any impediment to heat pump function might degrade the system’s efficiency, so keep an eye on the outdoor unit on a regular basis.
