We may not get as bitterly cold winters as our friends up north, but this doesn’t mean we don’t deal with chilly enough weather to need a reliable heating system. Many folks in our area choose a heat pump system to warm their homes. This is a great choice since they are highly efficient and effective for climates like ours–hot and humid summers with relatively mild winters.

But, what if you go to adjust your thermostat to do just that only to realize… nothing happened? Are you still getting cooled air from the vents? Or maybe it feels like the air is lukewarm instead of hot? This is an indication that something is wrong, but what?
