Switching a Heat Pump from Heat to Cool

As warmer temperatures approach, you will need to transition your heat pump from being a heater to providing you with cool air. It is time to schedule maintenance before temperatures warm up and you need your heat pump to be providing you with constant cooling.

There is maintenance for you and for us:

Maintenance Tasks for the Homeowner

  • Replace the air filter.
  • Remove any growth from a two to three foot area around the outdoor section of your heat pump.
  • Clean the coils, the cold weather probably made this difficult, it is time to look at them again.
  • Check your thermostat settings and adjust for warm weather.
  • Flush and clean the drain line. Remember to prime the trap, if necessary.
  • If your unit uses electric heat, check all of the wiring for discoloration and heat damage.

Maintenance Tasks for Professionals

  • A professional will check the refrigerant to ensure there is a safe level. Refrigerant levels need to remain consistent, especially in the warm weather.
  • Electrical connections will be inspected to check for exposed wiring or loose connections.
  • Blower motor should be oiled. Blower wheels should be inspected for balance.
  • A professional will check the energy efficiency of your unit. If any problems are present, they should be repaired before operating the heating system.
