This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and uphold maximum efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are open for ideal airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can harm your system’s compressor. Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear. If plants have budded up near your outdoor unit or litter has gathered, be sure to clear the area. Test your thermostat regularly to ensure that it’s operating appropriately.
