With winter rapidly approaching you need to start thinking about preparing for the cold days and nights that lie ahead. This includes ensuring that your Wellington FL heat pump is prepared for the task of keeping you warm throughout the season. Here are a few simple tips to help you make sure that your heat pump is ready to perform. If you have any questions about how to make sure that you get the best heating performance possible from your heat pump call the experts at Envirotech for answers. We’re happy to help you get your heat pump ready for the winter season ahead.
First of all, clean out your air filters. This is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to increase both the efficiency and effectiveness of your home heating system. Clean air filters means that there will be less airflow resistance, which in turn means that your heat pump will not have to work as hard to heat your home.
Also, make sure that all air intake registers are free of any blockages. Pull furniture away from walls, move boxes out of the way and make it as easy as possible for air to flow throughout your home. This allows for even, consistent heating throughout your home.
It is also important that you inspect you heat pump’s outdoor unit. Before you start using your heat pump this winter clear away any debris, branches and leaves that may have accumulated over the spring and summer. You need to be sure that the airflow around the outdoor heat pump unit is unobstructed. This improves efficiency while also reducing the risk of damage to your heat pump.
Finally, the most important thing that you can do to prepare you heat pump for winter is to call for professional maintenance service. There is no better way to ensure the proper, efficient and dependable performance you need from your heat pump. Schedule maintenance before you need to put your heat pump to use. This will allow your professional heat pump technician to tune up your system for maximum efficiency, and it is also a great opportunity to diagnose and repair any small or developing problems before they can cause serious headaches. Operating you heat pump in even slightly compromised condition degrades your system and increases the likelihood of a break down. Make sure that your heat pump is ready for action with regular professional maintenance.
Follow these simple steps and know that you’ll get the performance that you need from your Wellington FL heat pump this winter. Let Envirotech know if you have any more questions or would like to schedule service. We’re happy to help, so call today.
