An efficient heat pump will serve you for a longer period without consuming a lot of energy or breaking down often, offering peace of mind and uninterrupted comfort. Fortunately, there are inexpensive practices you can adopt to enable your system in Powder Springs, GA to deliver maximum indoor comfort. In this article, we will discuss how you can use your heat pump more efficiently.
1. Change Your Air Filter
An air filter cleans your indoor air, protecting your family from symptoms of poor indoor air quality. The air filter component catches any contaminants in the air as it enters the system for heating or cooling. If the filter remains unchanged for a long time, the pollutants block it and create a barrier that prevents smooth airflow.
Since the heat pump is unable to draw sufficient air for heating, it cannot meet your indoor temperature needs. It also runs constantly to draw more air. Changing an air filter is an easy homeowner task. If you’re unsure, one of our technicians will be happy to show you how.
2. Schedule Maintenance Services
Heat pump maintenance allows the system to give its best performance. A maintenance visit includes cleaning all components, inspecting all connections, repairing any faulty parts and lubricating any moving parts. Our technician will also inspect the thermostat to ensure that it relays signals optimally.
3. Avoid Setting Your Thermostat Too High
Contrary to popular opinion, your system won’t heat your home quickly when you crank up your thermostat. The practice makes the system overwork and consumes more energy.
The parts of an overworking heat pump break down often, resulting in increased repair costs. Set your usual temperatures to avoid overstraining the HVAC system.
Follow these easy tips to enjoy energy savings and reduced breakdowns this cold season. If your heat pump starts malfunctioning, contact E. Smith Heating & Air Conditioning for professional heating services. Our team will respond promptly to ensure your family does not stay in the cold any longer.
