If you live in Moyock, NC, chances are that you use your heat pump for both heating and cooling. This makes it crucial that you find ways to increase the efficiency of your system. These four steps could help you achieve more cost-effective heat pump performance:
Replace your air filter every 90 days or more often if you have pets or allergic household members so that this component doesn’t act as an obstacle to airflow. In fact, anything that obstructs airflow, even a rug covering half an air register, can put stress on the heat pump, which must overexert itself to circulate the air.
In cooling mode, the compressor must stay clean so that it can release the heat from your home to the outdoors. You can use a water hose to gently wash the exterior, which can fill with dirt, dust, leaves and dead insects, and use a brush to wipe down the condenser coil that’s inside.
Have a service technician inspect your home to see if you need more insulation for your attic and walls. By keeping the air from escaping quickly, insulation lets your system run less frequently, sparing it much wear and tear as a result.
