Split System Heat Pump
Our products are designed, tested and built in accordance with DOE standardized procedures; however, actual operating
results and efficiencies may vary based on manufacturing and supplier tolerances, equipment configuration, operating
conditions and installation practices.
Your Heat Pump is controlled by the thermostat mounted on
your wall. The thermostat is a highly sensitive low voltage
device and is available in several different configurations from
different manufacturers. The details listed below are typical for
information regarding the model of thermostat installed.

Have the Model and Serial Numbers of the indoor and
outdoor units available and be sure to describe the problem.
Your system should be regularly inspected by a qualified
service technician. Between visits, there are some routine
maintenance procedures you can do to help keep your
system operating at peak performance.

The indoor coil condenses water from the air, and this water
must be disposed through an appropriate drain system.
During the cooling season check at least monthly for free
flow of drainage and clean if necessary.
Outdoor Unit Coils
Grass clippings, leaves, dirt, dust, lint from clothes dryers,
and fall- off from trees can be drawn into coils by movement
of the air. Clogged outdoor coils will lower the efficiency of
your unit andcould causedamage tothe compressor. Clean
debris away from the outdoor coils.
