There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your heat pump functioning correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system working properly, avoiding unexpected heat pump repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces additional effort on your heat pump to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lower your heat pump’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.
