I still find it so amazing that all I have to do to be comfortable is switch the thermostat and send the heat pump process in the other direction. During the Summer, the heat pump is taking the heat energy out of the house and exhausting it so cooler air can take it’s place. In the Winter, the process is reversed and the heat pump captures heat energy from outside and brings it in the house for warmth. I mean, does it get any easier than that? Of course, there is plenty of HVAC maintenance in there as well. I always make sure that I get heating maintenance in the Fall. And there is no way I go into Summer without the air conditioning tune up. That’s just a no brainer. While our Summer HVAC needs may outpace our heating needs in the Winter, it sure is nice to have such a versatile machine. Heating and cooling my house comes from one source. For sure, we don’t have the sort of Winter weather where a gas furnace is something that has to be in use. But we certainly get our fair share of cold weather as far as we’re concerned. And we have never had a minute when the heat pump wasn’t providing cozy warmth in the Winter months. Still, without the heat pump in the Summer, it would be miserable in our home. We keep the thermostat relatively high in order to save on cooling costs. But it’s the humidity control of the air conditioning process that also makes such a huge difference in our comfort. The heat pump is just a one stop shop for heating and cooling.
