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 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.

It Might Be Your Thermostat Making You Cold

Monday, December 30th, 2019

smart-thermostatBefore you reach for the phone to call for yet another furnace repair, have you considered that maybe your heater isn’t the source of the problem? All too often, we have encountered people who are struggling through winter and are sure their heater is broken only to discover that the real culprit is their thermostat.

If there is an issue with your thermostat it can actually be the main cause of a seemingly malfunctioning heater. This is because your thermostat is responsible for detecting the temperature difference in the room and letting your heater know when it is time to turn on. Problems with the connection between your heater and your thermostat, or with your thermostat’s ability to gauge the temperature of the room, can result in a very chilly, or very stuffy, home.

Learn more about this issue below and contact Collier’s Comfort when you are in need of thermostat repair in Fort Wayne, IN.
