How to use a heat pump in winter?
Turn your heat pump off when it’s not in use, keeping temperatures to 65-75 degrees F for optimal operation. Ditch constant monitoring with a programmable or Smart (WiFi) thermostat for convenient temperature control. Do NOT get a cover for the heat pump in winter. Heat pump shelter is not necessary and can cause serious problems.
Make sure seams surrounding doors, windows, outlets, and plumbing are properly sealed. Keep doors closed and curtains shut to hold in heat. Ask a professional HVAC contractor about the best way to operate your heat pump for your area climate.
