How to Keep Your Tucson 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 Tucson colder months. If you already called Ambient Air for your annual service, you’re certainly on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Chat with us at 520-201-3871 to get one on the calendar.

There are plenty of easy things you can do in between professional tune-ups to advance the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your heat pump and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are clear for maximum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work more and can harm your system’s compressor.
  • Be sure your supply and return registers are exposed and clear.
  • If plants have sprouted up around your outdoor unit or litter has collected, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and slowly raise the temperature setting until your heat pump flips on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
