How to Keep Your Orange Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is vital to keeping it functioning well and keeping you and your family warm during the Orange chill. If you already called Mighty Ducts for your annual check-up, you’re absolutely on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Chat with us at 714-464-3376 to get one set-up.

There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in peak 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 replace them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Check to see if your coils and fans are accessible for ideal airflow. Decreased airflow makes your heat pump work more and can harm 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 gathered, be sure to open the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s working appropriately. Merely turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
