During the summer, most people forget about maintaining their heat pumps. After all, they are dealing with another kind of heat. However, most people do not know that heat pumps work like air conditioners in the summer and work hard to keep your home cool. Conversely, heat pumps make your home warm and toasty in the winter. That’s why it is essential to have your heat pump maintained year round. Now matter what season it is, heat pumps are at the very core of your home HVAC system.
Homeowners should replace air filters when they get dirty. This is a small but important step to take because proper airflow is not possible when air filters are clogged with debris. Filters should be done at least once every three months. In the summer, it is best to have your air filters changed every four weeks.
