How to Keep Cool With a Heat Pump This Spring

Spring tends to bring warm temperatures to the Manassas, Virginia, area, but that doesn’t mean you have to let things heat up in your home. Your heat pump is perfectly primed to keep the cool air flowing all season long. Find out how to keep cool this spring by doing basic heat pump maintenance.

Set a Comfortable Temperature

When you’re ready to welcome the cooling season, switch your heat pump from heat to cool, and set a temperature that will keep the family comfortable without wasting energy. Most HVAC experts recommend setting the temperature to 76 or 78 degrees when your family is home and increasing the temperature 8 to 10 degrees when you’re asleep or out of the house. An advanced model like the Infinity 20 Heat Pump with Greenspeed Intelligence will adjust its cooling output throughout the day to ensure that you’re always perfectly comfortable.

Change the Air Filter

Like most HVAC components, a heat pump relies on a clean air filter to keep debris out of the system and out of your home’s air supply. No matter if you have an Infinity 19 Heat Pump or another model, make a point of changing the filter at least every three months. When summer arrives and you keep the heat pump running constantly, the team at Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning recommend changing the air filter every month to keep your system operating efficiently.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Whether your heat pump is brand new or you’ve had it for over a decade, it needs an annual tuneup. Our team of HVAC experts recommends doing this before you turn on your heat pump for the season. If that isn’t possible, have your system maintained as early in the season as possible. Doing this gives our team of service techs the chance to spot small problems before they escalate, which will help keep you comfortable throughout the cooling season.

Whether you need to schedule HVAC maintenance or you’re in the market for a new heat pump, we’re at your service. Call Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning at 703-783-0145 for all your cooling needs.
