How to Keep Your Paso Robles Home Comfortable During Cooler Months

If you want to stay warm during the cold months in Paso Robles, your heat pump will need some maintenance to keep working at its best. If you’ve already planned your once a year tune-up with Paso Robles Heating and Air, you’re right on schedule. Don’t panic if you haven’t, there’s still time! Give us a call at [[phonenumber]] to schedule your appointment.

Between professional tune-ups, there are many things you can do to keep your heat pump running at its maximum performance. Try these maintenance tricks to keep your heat pump on track:

  • Are your coils and fans clear for optimal airflow? Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can hurt your system’s compressor.
  • Your supply and return registers should be open and clear.
  • Check your filters regularly and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t emphasize this enough. It’s an easy way to boost the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Clear the zone around your outdoor unit if odds and ends have collected or plants have dominated the zone.
  • To be sure your system is working correctly, test your thermostat frequently. Turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until you hear your heat pump kick on. If you don’t hear anything, refer to our blog post on heat pump repair for thermostat guidance or contact us directly.
