When people hear the words “heat pump” they tend to associate it with a heating system. However, heat pumps act like air conditioners in the summer months. That’s why it is so important to maintain your heat pump during the dog days of summer. Heat pumps also help clear the humid air of allergens. Below are some tips that can help you increase the efficiency of your heat pump.
- Be sure to keep the windows and doors closed while the heat pump is running. Letting the hot outdoor air in will only force your heat pump to work even harder to pump out cool air. Constantly opening and closing the door can also hike up your energy bills.
- Barbecues are perfect way to bring family and friends together. Cooking outside also reduces the heat generated in your home. So enjoy the great outdoors and fire up the grill this summer!
- Last but certainly not least, you should have your heat pump maintained at least once a year.
