How to Keep Your Heat Pump Working at Its Best This Winter
When you invest in a heat pump, you want to be sure that it will last for many years. Heat pumps are a great way to heat and cool your home, but they can be prone to problems in the winter. Here are some tips on how to keep your heat pump working at its best this winter:
Keep the area around your heat pump clear
Snow and ice can build up around the unit, causing it to work harder to function. Be sure to shovel any snow or ice away from the heat pump so that it can work properly. Leaves and debris can also cause problems, so be sure to keep the area around your heat pump clear.
Check the filters
The filters in your heat pump need to be changed regularly in order to keep the unit running properly. Be sure to check the filters monthly and change them as needed. This will help your heat pump to run more efficiently and prevent problems.
Have the unit serviced
It’s a good idea to have your heat pump serviced by a professional at least once a year. This will help to keep it in good working condition and prevent problems. If you schedule a service appointment in the fall, your heat pump will most likely be ready for winter. The team at Amalo can help you with all of your heat pump needs, so be sure to give them a call.
Don’t Cover the Unit
When the weather gets cold, you may be tempted to cover your heat pump with a tarp or something similar. However, this is not a good idea and can actually cause problems like mold growth. Your heat pump needs to be able to breathe, so covering it can cause moisture to build up and damage the unit. Switching your unit to defrost mode will help to prevent any moisture buildup.
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be sure to have a heat pump that lasts for many years. Be sure to contact Amalo if you have any questions or need assistance with your heat pump.
