Making the Most of Your Heat Pump
Whether you are considering a ductless heat pump or already have one, here are a few hints to get the most out of it this winter.
Heat pumps need good air flow through the outdoor unit to operate at peak efficiency. Make sure the outside unit fan and coil are free of leaves, grass, and twigs. Manufacturers recommend you have your heat pump professionally serviced each year to ensure its safe and efficient operation.
Keep Outdoor Unit Clear
Check for leaves or other debris that may be blocking the fan openings.
Avoid Ice Buildup on Outdoor Unit
If your outdoor unit sits beneath a roof drip edge, falling water could freeze on the unit’s fan, causing it to go into defrost mode. Avoid ice buildup by directing falling water away from the unit with a rain cover or diverter on the roof of the house.
