This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and uphold maximum efficiency. Look to see if your coils and fans are open for optimum airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can harm your system’s compressor. Be sure your supply and return registers are ready and clear. If plants have budded up by your outdoor unit or clutter has accumulated, be sure to open the area. Test your thermostat regularly to ensure that it’s functioning correctly.
