Your Heat Pump: A 9-Point Checklist To Keep It In Prime Shape

In the San Antonio region, heat pumps have become popular because they efficiently produce cool and warm air.

Heat pumps simply move and transfer heat, instead of converting it from fuel like a common combustion heating system. Air-source heat pumps can provide up to 3 times more heat than they consume in electricity.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a maintained heat pump’s energy consumption is 10-25 percent less, compared to an untended one.

Follow this nine point checklist for heat pump efficiency:

  • Maintain the system according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Clean or change filters once a month, or as needed. Dirty filters reduce the system’s airflow and performance, and can damage its compressor.
  • Clean your home’s supply and return registers, and straighten bent fins.
  • Use a high-efficiency, variable-speed indoor fan motor. System performance deteriorates with continuous fan operation.
  • Set the thermostat to auto.
  • Remove clutter and vegetation around the outdoor equipment.
  • Clean dirty outdoor coils.
  • Turn off and clean the outdoor fan occasionally.
  • For optimal efficiency, have a trained technician service your system annually.
  • If you have questions regarding the efficiency of your heat pump, or would simply like to schedule annual maintenance, contact Beyer Boystoday.
