Check Refrigerant Levels

The refrigerant level in your heat pump helps to transfer heat. If it's low, then the unit won't work as efficiently and can start to cause problems. Make sure you check the refrigerant level periodically and add more if needed.

Wide Range of Services

The air ducts in your heat pump need to be replaced every few years to ensure good airflow through the unit. If the ducts are old and worn, they can start to leak air and cause your heat pump to work less efficiently. Try cleaning them out first, but if the airflow doesn't improve, it might be time to schedule a heat pump service to have those replaced.
