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

Let’s be honest, savings and HVAC contractor aren’t two phrases that homeowners use together very often. People tend to think of HVAC service as a heavy expense, where it either costs a lot, or costs a little bit less than a lot.

That’s why we invented the HomeSavers Club. Our vision was to make experiences like heating repair in Fort Wayne, IN cost less and also net you some pretty big bonuses as long as you were a part of our club. It’s an agreement, a commitment to better HVAC care and savings in the future.

We’re going to focus on three aspects of our HomeSavers Club. Hopefully, these can show you just how impressive our membership services are.

3 Reasons to Heat Your Home without Ducts

Monday, November 16th, 2020

ductless-blowerWhole-house, forced air heating and air conditioning systems are incredibly popular. And with good reason. These systems are efficient, and they’re effective. When you use a furnace and an air conditioner (or just an air-source heat pump) to heat and cool your home, you also only need one heat distribution system to handle your heating and cooling—your ductwork! There is another option to consider, however, and it is one that we cannot recommend strongly enough.

This is the ductless mini split. As the name implies, ductless mini splits (or ductless heat pumps) do not require air ducts in order to distribute heated and cooled air throughout the house. And no, they are not at all just another version of a space heater or window unit. They’re still whole-house systems, just with a very unique design. Read on to learn more about ductless mini splits in Fort Wayne, IN.

Monday, May 6th, 2019

technicianWhen you hear HVAC technicians refer to “sizing” an air conditioner or heater, they’re not talking about how the unit will fit inside of your home. While that’s certainly part of their expertise and something they should take great care in doing, what this terminology actually refers to is the unit’s output.
