How to Avoid Ongoing Heat Pump Repair
Heat pump repair may be inevitable at some point, however simply maintaining your pump can reduce the number of repair visits AND save 10% to 25% on your energy bill. Some steps every home owner should perform include:
- Don’t set back pump thermostat because it causes back up heat to turn on – makes it more expensive to operate
- Avoid continuous indoor fan operation – this can reduce heat pump performance
- Use the “auto” fan setting on the thermostat
- Clean or change filters every month
- Clean outdoor coils when they are dirty
- Clean the fan (first turn off the power)
- Clean the supply and return registers around your home
- Straighten fins (if they are bent)

- Confirm adequate airflow and refrigerant charge
