Adding Fuel to the Fire: Using Heat Pumps in the Summer

With spring in full swing, summer is right around the corner. You may have scheduled your air conditioner tune-up, but what about maintenance for your heat pump? Most people do not realize that heat pumps work like air conditioners in the summer by keeping your home cool. Since the refrigerant in heat pumps absorbs heat, it helps to decrease the overall temperature that circulates throughout your home. However, in the winter, heat pumps absorb heat and disperse it to all areas in your home. So don’t forget to add heat pump maintenance to your spring cleaning checklist!

For a heat pump to work correctly, it must be turned to heat mode in the winter and cool mode in the summer. So remember to switch your thermostat from heat mode to cool mode this summer! It is also important to set your thermostat to the highest temperature your home will be comfortable at. This will help you save money while increasing the energy efficiency and the longevity of your heat pump.
