This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and maintain peak efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are accessible for ideal airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can injure your system’s compressor. Confirm that your supply and return registers are exposed and clear. If plants have sprouted up near your outdoor unit or a mess has collected, be sure to clean the area. Test your thermostat regularly to ensure that it’s working properly.
