How to Keep Your Abilene Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is imperative to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family cozy during the Abilene chill. If you already called Abilene Air-Tech Inc for your annual check-up, you’re certainly in control of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Give us a call at 325-200-4667 to get one scheduled.

There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between expert tune-ups to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and uphold top efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are accessible for optimum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are ready and clear.
  • If plants have budded up near your outdoor unit or litter has collected, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s operating correctly. Merely turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until your heat pump switches on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
