It’s expected for your heat pump to create some noise as it heats or cools your residence. Wintertime can make it particularly noisy, since it could move to defrost mode to avoid freezing over.
There are several things you can do to make your heat pump operate more quietly throughout the year.
1. Book Biannual Heat Pump Maintenance
Heat pump maintenance is extremely important, since it keeps your manufacturer warranty valid. This protects your finances if your heat pump has a major issue during your warranty period.
It can also help our professionals uncover little troubles that can make your heat pump noisier. And possibly help you not experience an expensive repair during extreme weather that impacts your comfort.
If little heat pump issues keep on going unnoticed, they could make your system malfunction in the future. By discovering problems like this early, our pros can get your heat pump repaired before you really need to depend on it.
Even more crucial, having a professional clean and lubricate your heat pump’s moving components might make it more efficient. This could help you conserve more on your energy bills.
Since your heat pump operates throughout the year, we advise having this work done twice a year, before summer and before winter.
2. Regularly Change Your Air Filter
Your house’s air stays fresh and clean as a result of your air filter. When the filter starts to be clogged, it can result in several issues, like short cycling. This makes your heat pump turn on and off more regularly, use more energy and can wear it out more rapidly.
Here’s how regularly we recommend replacing your air filter:
- Flat filter: Once a month
- Pleated filter: Every three months
If you have allergies or pets, you could need to get a new filter more often.
