This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and uphold peak efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are open for maximum airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can injure your system’s compressor. Confirm that your supply and return registers are open and clear. If plants have grown up around your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s operating properly.
