      Tips to Improve Your Heat Pump’s Performance in Winter

      Heat pumps draw heat from the outside air and transfer it into your home to provide warmth. However, freezing temperatures can compromise its performance. Understanding how to optimize your equipment for winter operation is essential to keeping your indoor spaces warm and cozy. 

      Tips to Improve Your Heat Pump’s Performance in Winter

      Continue reading for tips to improve your heat pump’s performance during the colder months. 

      Set It and Stick With It

      Experts recommend setting your heat pump to a comfortable temperature and leaving it alone. Heat pumps operate best when maintaining a steady temperature. Constant adjustments or significant temperature spikes can lead to excessive energy consumption. Implement a set-and-forget approach and avoid cranking up the heat during colder nights as this can strain your equipment. 

      Replace Dirty Filters

      A clogged filter will force your furnace to work harder, increasing wear and decreasing efficiency. Regular filter replacement is a simple task that can save you from sudden breakdowns. It can also help prolong your unit’s lifespan and improve indoor air quality. 

      Keep the Outdoor Unit Clear

      Regularly inspect your outdoor unit for debris like leaves, snow and ice. While heat pumps have an automatic defrost function, physical obstructions can impair their performance. Keeping the outdoor unit debris-free allows for good air circulation and more efficient operation. 

      Avoid Auto Mode  

      Setting your heat pump to “auto” mode can cause it to switch between heating and cooling. Use “heat” mode during winter to prevent accidental cooling on sunny days or when alternate heat sources like wood stoves are in use.

      Invest in a Smart Thermostat

      Upgrading to a smart thermostat can significantly enhance your heat pump performance. This device can learn your habits and schedule. It can make automatic temperature adjustments, saving energy without compromising comfort. 

      Schedule Routine Maintenance

      Despite your best efforts to replace filters and tweak settings, there’s no substitute for professional maintenance. Regular inspections and tune-ups by skilled technicians can ensure your heat pump operates at peak performance regardless of the season.
