Surviving the Spring Temperature Swings

Happy young family relaxing on bed together

Does this sound familiar? It’s finally mild enough outside to justify turning off the heat. Then, one particularly hot afternoon, you declare, “it’s time to turn on the air conditioning,” only to have temperatures drop overnight. You wake up shivering and have to run to the thermostat to get the house warmed up.

We’ve entered that strange time of year where the weather doesn’t know what it wants to be. It’s officially spring, but we’ll experience mild weather, summer-like temperatures and frost warnings in the same week.

Outdoor temperature swings mean uncertainty for homeowners. Is it time to switch my system from heating to cooling? What if a cold front hits and I go back to heating? Is there a cost for adjusting my thermostat too early?

That shoulder period between winter and spring can be a real pain, suffering a threshold of discomfort before switching your system from heating to cooling. Thankfully, there’s an efficient option that cures all the change-over blues.

Heat Pumps: Up to the Task

Our Zoned Comfort Solutions® all-electric heat pumps operate with INVERTER-driven compressors. Using this technology allows the systems to meet variable weather with variable capacity. As outdoor temperatures fluctuate, the heat pump’s capacity varies as needed, and your comfort’s ensured without having to revisit the thermostat multiple times. You can set a temperature in each zone and the system simply adjusts itself to maintain the set point. This approach saves energy versus traditional systems that you have to switch back and forth and are fully on or off, not variable like our Zoned Comfort Solutions.

Our all-electric heat pump systems provide energy-efficient comfort in all seasons, even when you’re experiencing all four seasons in a single week. They’ll keep your utility bills controlled and consistent, just like your set points.
