What It Means When Your Heat Pump Won’t Switch Modes

Monday, February 11th, 2019

blue-circle-with-white-question-mark-and-white-backgroundWith temperatures expected to start creeping back up into the 70s in just a few short weeks, it’s time to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the change in the weather. The best way to do this is to schedule preventive maintenance. It’s still a little early just yet, but it’s never too early for a tune-up!
