No one wants to spend the coldest night of the year curled up beneath a blanket because their heating system doesn’t keep them comfortable. The good news is that there are ways you can help your Pasco County, FL, heat pump run better this winter. Here are four ways you can get your heat pump ready for cooler weather.
Install a New Thermostat
A new thermostat may very well save you money on your monthly heating costs. A programmable model will save you the most. This is because this type of thermostat responds to different settings for different times of day, only using as much energy as you actually require for your comfort.
Change the Heat Pump Filter
The filter is a vital part of your heating system that keeps the air in your home clean and free of debris. When dirt and other particles clog the filter, altered and obstructed airflow reduces the effectiveness of your HVAC system. Changing this filter once a month during the winter will keep your heat pump running more smoothly.
Call the Professionals
Having a yearly HVAC tune-up is a smart way to keep your warranty valid and ensure that your heat pump is operating as it should. Your technician will thoroughly inspect the entire HVAC system, make adjustments and recommend any repairs that need to be completed.
Correct Air Leaks
Reduced airflow in your heating system causes your system to work harder, which raises your energy costs. Check for air leaks around doors and windows, and seal them with weather stripping. Also, make sure all air vents are open, with no furniture or other objects blocking them.
