How to Keep Your St. Cloud Home Comfortable During Cooler Months


Maintaining your heat pump is essential to keeping it running well and keeping you and your family warm during the St. Cloud winter. If you already called Osceola Air, LLC for your annual service, you’re certainly ahead of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Chat with us at 407-477-6319 to get one on the calendar.

There are many simple things you can do in between expert tune-ups to improve the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your heat pump and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are clear for optimum airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heat pump work vigorously and can injure your system’s compressor.
  • Certify that your supply and return registers are exposed and clear.
  • If plants have grown up around your outdoor unit or clutter has gathered, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s working appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until your heat pump turns on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on heat pump repair or additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
