3 Tips for Using Your Heat Pump to Stay Warm this Winter, Madison, Ohio

The winters in Ohio are extreme, which is why it’s important to have the right equipment to stay warm in your home. One crucial component in achieving this goal is having a reliable heat pump.

The professionals at Aire Serv of Mansfield in Ohio have spent decades helping homeowners and businesses alike make the most of their heating systems. If you’re concerned about staying warm this winter, they say the following three tips will help you stay toasty: 

  • Check Outdoor Heat Pumps Often: During the winter, the temperature can plummet at any time, making it easy for an outdoor heat pump to freeze over. To avoid such a scenario, inspect the area around your home’s heat pump periodically and remove any snow and ice buildup. If your pump does freeze, pour warm water over it until the ice melts. 
  • heat pumpKeep the Thermostat Consistent: One way to lessen the effectiveness of your heat pump is by changing the thermostat too often. When you change the temperature, your heat pump will have to work harder to adjust, which often results in wasted energy and the need for repairs. So try keeping your thermostat at a steady temperature during the winter to avoid any heat pump mishaps. If you’re having trouble regulating the temperature in your home, it may be necessary to contact a reliable heating and air conditioning contractor for repairs. 
  • Elevate Your Heat Pump: Much in the same way AC condensers work, a heat pump utilizes coils to produce the heat pumped throughout your home. In order for it to function effectively, these coils need to be unobstructed, which is why it’s important to keep it raised at least four inches off the ground. During winter, raising it helps minimize snow buildup and improves drainage around your heat pump unit.
