Calculating Heat Pump Efficiency

Can I Use My Heat Pump More Efficiently in Canton, OH?

April 3, 2022

You run your heat pump to keep your home in Canton, OH, cool during the spring and summer Before this cooling season starts and causes your energy bill to shoot up again, you’ll want to think about the many ways that you can achieve energy-related savings. Here are three ways that you can make your heat pump more efficient.

Keep Components Clean

Two things can quickly wear down your heat pump: excessive heat and constricted airflow. The former can develop because of dirt and dust accumulating on certain components like the condenser coil.

You can address this by giving the whole outdoor unit a thorough but gentle washing. Hose down the grill, take a soft brush to the condenser coil and loosen up the dirt in the coil fins with a comb.

Constricted airflow arises when homeowners neglect to change their air filter. You need to change it at least every 90 days. It’s best to change it more often if you have pets or allergy sufferers in your household.

Program Your Thermostat

Your thermostat determines when the heat pump turns on and off. Program it so that it doesn’t activate the system when no one is home. Adjust the set point accordingly, raising it when everyone is asleep.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

To know everything that’s wrong with your system, you’ll need expert maintenance. This can eliminate most of those issues with the adjustments and other tasks that the service technician performs.
