Switching From Heating Mode to Cooling Mode

Monday, 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. In the winter, we depend on heat pumps to run in “heating mode” to bring warm temperatures into our home. In the summer, the “cooling mode” is responsible for removing the heat and keeping our homes air-conditioned. That being said, there are a few things to remember when it comes to heating in Auburn, IN.

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. Also, if you run into any problems while you’re operating your heat pump, don’t hesitate to call our professionals today. We provide quality repairs at an affordable price.

3 Great Things About Our HomeSavers Club

Monday, April 5th, 2021
