How to Keep Your West Palm Beach Home Comfortable During Cooler Months

Maintaining your heat pump is essential to keeping it running well and keeping you and your family warm during the West Palm Beach chill. If you already called Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc for your annual check-up, you’re absolutely in control of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 561-515-5527 to get one on the calendar.

There are lots of simple things you can do in between expert servicing to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it running in peak shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and uphold maximum efficiency.
  • Determine if your coils and fans are accessible for optimum airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work more and can injure your system’s compressor.
  • Certify that your supply and return registers are open and clear.
  • If plants have grown up near your outdoor unit or clutter has accumulated, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to ensure that it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and slowly raise the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
