It’s March and most of the snow is gone here in southern, New Brunswick but even with a chance of snow coming in the next week or two, it’s important to make sure you clear off snow and ice on and around your heat pump. This is one of the main reasons we get calls from customers with issues with their heat pump in the winter months. Sometimes it’s a small fix where a part is affected, but ice and snow build up can cause major failures to your system.
Heat Pump covers are becoming a popular investment for home owners. There are custom covers available for large ducted systems and there are lots of options for mini-split ductless heat pumps. These help keep the snow and ice away from your heat pump but we always recommend checking your system after a major storm just in case.
