This is such a easy way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and uphold peak efficiency. Check to see if your coils and fans are clear for ideal airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can injure your system’s compressor. Certify that your supply and return registers are ready and clear. If plants have budded up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to open the area. Test your thermostat regularly to guarantee that it’s functioning correctly.
