How to Keep Your Lake Worth Home Comfortable During Cooler Months

 

Maintaining your heat pump is essential to keeping it running well and keeping you and your family warm during the Lake Worth winter. If you already called Smyth Air Conditioning Inc for your annual service, you’re certainly ahead 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 many straightforward things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase 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 emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. 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 open for maximum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Confirm that 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 properly. Simply 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.
