Even if your heat pump is working this winter, you should consider Longwood heat pump maintenance to make sure that your unit is running as smooth as can be.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump warms your house. Unlike many heating units, a heat pump moves warm air from one place to another but does not heat the air.

Since a heat pump does not produce its own heat, it is less costly than operating a conventional heater or AC unit. Heat pumps can save you up to 50 percent on electricity.

Here are three kinds of heat pumps. There’s an air-to-air heat pump, a water source heat pump, and geothermal heat pump. All of these units collect heat from either the air (air-to-air), water (water source) or the ground (geothermal) from outside your home and transmit this heat into your house. The air-to-air unit is the most common unit found in homes today.

For those who don’t have a heat pump, they are also available as mini splits, ductless air-to-air heat pumps.

Just like with anything, your AC unit, a heat pump should be inspected and maintained; with proper maintenance, your system should be running smoothly. There are a few things you can check for Longwood heat pump maintenance, including your home’s thermostat, filters, ducts, and airflow.

Test Your Thermostat

One of the first things you should do is check your thermostat to ensure that your heat pump is working. When checking, turn the heat on. If your system doesn’t turn on within a few minutes, then you may have an issue with your heat pump and need to give us a call.

Change Filters

Make sure you routinely change the filter of your unit. This will ensure that your unit is running smoothly and efficiently.

It will also be good for you since with dirt, dust and pollen will potentially add more dust to your house. This can lead to more allergy issues for you and your family.

Check Airflow

Check the airflow to your unit. If it seems like it’s not blowing enough air for any reason, there could be an issue with your unit and should be checked.
