How to Keep Your Long Beach 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 Long Beach chill. If you already called YES R&M Inc. for your annual tune-up, you’re definitely on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Give us a call at 562-286-6624 to get one on the calendar.

There are plenty of simple things you can do in between expert maintenance to advance the efficiency of your heat pump and keep it operating in tip top shape. Try these heat pump maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your heat pump and maintain top efficiency.
  • Look to see if your coils and fans are open for maximum airflow. Diminished airflow makes your heat pump work harder and can damage your system’s compressor.
  • Certify that your supply and return registers are exposed and clear.
  • If plants have grown up by your outdoor unit or a mess has accumulated, be sure to clear the area.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and gradually raise 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 additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
