Switching From Heating Mode to Cooling Mode

May 3rd, 2021

If you’re a heat pump owner, you’re probably already familiar with the phrase “heating and cooling mode.” This is what we use to differentiate between the different types of comfort your heat pump provides.

We’re going to talk about the inevitable switch this year between heating and cooling modes. We’ll discuss some safe practices you can take as a heat pump owner to ensure your system switches seamlessly.
