Should my heat pump run all the time?

Most heat pumps will continuously run during the cold weather. That means that it is standard for your heat pump to be constantly running throughout winter when the temperatures are at or below 30 degrees. However, if the heat pump is constantly running in the cooling mode throughout the summer, then there could be a problem.

What temperature is a heat pump not effective?

The optimal temperature range for conventional air source heat pump operation is over 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat pump begins to lose efficiency once temperatures dip to 40 degrees and are no longer the most effective heating option once temperatures fall to 25 to 30 degrees.

Should you turn the heat pump down at night?

Once you have set your heat pump to a comfortable temperature, we suggest leaving the temperature setting alone. Heat pumps are designed to keep a steady temperature and use more energy if you turn it down at night or when you’re away for the day.
