You’ll save money on utilities with a more efficient HVAC system. When your equipment is operating at peak efficiency, it uses less energy to keep your home pleasant. Working with a dependable technician will go a long way toward increasing your equipment’s efficiency. An air conditioner repair specialist explains what you and your HVAC technician can do to help your heat pump run more efficiently.
5 Ways to Make Your Home Heat Pump System More Efficient
- Keep Your System Running
Unlike furnaces, which should not be left on for lengthy periods of time, running your heat pump all year is actually more efficient. Switching back and forth between a heat pump and other HVAC equipment will increase your expenditures unnecessarily, and since a heat pump can provide both heating and cooling, it makes sense to use these systems as much as possible.
- Make the necessary adjustments to your thermostat
If you’re using your heat pump in conjunction with a furnace or boiler, check sure the thermostat is set appropriately. Your furnace/boiler will only switch on if it is absolutely required if you maintain the setting as low as possible, allowing your heat pump to offer the energy-efficient warmth you require.
- Remember to Change Your Air Filter
Air filter maintenance is an important aspect of keeping your HVAC system running efficiently and improving your indoor air quality. Your heat pump is no exception, which is why it’s critical to clean or replace the filter on a semi-regular basis. It’s critical to clean/replace the filter every three months for heat pumps, especially if the system is operated all year. If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems, it’s a good idea to change the filter more frequently.
- Keep your outside unit clean at all times
Because a heat pump contains both an outside and an indoor unit, you’ll want to check the external component for leaves, twigs, and other debris on a regular basis. In the worst-case situation, a nest could form inside your heat pump. Any blockage to your heat pump’s performance can cause it to malfunction, so keep an eye on that exterior unit on a regular basis.
- Annual Tune-Ups are Required
Even though heat pumps are energy-efficient and very simple to maintain, a professional tune-up is always a good idea. We can provide heat pump maintenance and inspections at A-TEMP Heating, Cooling & Electrical to ensure that your equipment runs properly for years to come and to prevent problems from spiraling out of hand.
