Your heat pump’s lifespan depends on its overall quality and design, but there are factors you can control that could extend it. The following are a few things you can do to make your heat pump last longer in your Punta Gorda, FL, home:

Schedule Routine Maintenance

When you schedule a routine maintenance visit with us, we’ll test the airflow of your system and make sure it’s running efficiently. This saves you money by helping you avoid costly repairs later on, and it lowers your energy consumption. Most importantly, it helps your system last longer.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Keeping your thermostat at a consistent temperature will help your system continue to work efficiently for longer. Consider setting it at 78 degrees for the cooling season and 68 for the heating season. Better yet, if you have us install a programmable thermostat, you can use it to automatically lower the temperature overnight or when you’re not at home to give the heat pump a break.

Keep Your Heat Pump Clean

If your outdoor unit has leaves and twigs covering it, they will restrict the airflow. Remove this debris and keep the grass and shrubs trimmed back to avoid air flow restriction. In addition, make sure the interior of your system is clean, too, as debris buildup can affect its lifespan. Never attempt to do anything inside your system; always seek professional help.

Have Professional Comfort Specialists Clean the Ducts

Dust and debris settle in your ductwork over time. This can be taxing on your system’s components. If you have us professionally clean your ducts regularly, your HVAC system will greatly benefit from it.
