How to Keep Your Abilene Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is imperative to keeping it running 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 definitely 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 increase 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 stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are accessible for optimum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Confirm that your supply and return registers are ready and clear.
  • If plants have budded up around your outdoor unit or litter has collected, be sure to clean the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s working 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 additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
