How to Keep Your Lake Worth Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is essential to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family comfortable during the Lake Worth chill. If you already called Smyth Air Conditioning Inc for your annual tune-up, you’re certainly on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 561-533-6066 to get one on the calendar.

There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between pro servicing to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it running in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Check to see if your coils and fans are clear for maximum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can harm your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are open and clear.
  • If plants have grown up by your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Just turn it on and gently increase the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
