7 Tips for Operating Your Mini-Split Heat Pump in the Summer

“If you own a mini-split heat pump system, you probably already know about the benefits of efficient heating and cooling, zone temperature control, and quiet operation. Mini-splits require little maintenance and are easy to operate. To get the most out of your mini-split heat pump system, check out these seven tips to maximize it’s efficiency, lower energy costs, and enhance your comfort during the summer months.

 

Choose your comfort level.
Don’t get hung up on the number. When choosing the temperature setting on the remote for your mini-splits, you may discover you need to set it higher or lower than you would expect. Part of this is due to the fact that the temperature is measured at the level of the indoor air handler unit, which is typically 7-8 feet off the ground. Find a setting your most comfortable with and stick with that.

 

Let your system run continuously.
Set it and forget it. A mini-split system uses less energy and keeps temperatures most consistent when it runs continuously, as in, 24/7. You also don’t need to turn the units on and off or adjust temperature settings when you’re away like you might with a central heating and cooling system controlled with a thermostat.”
