Colorado’s weather patterns can throw anyone for a loop. Some days it’s brisk and cool and some days it’s sunny and warm, especially with the change of seasons. So as we move into fall, here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
It’s Okay to Switch Between Heating and Cooling
It might be a consistent 70 degrees for a week straight, and then one day the temperature drops to around 50 degrees. With our unpredictable weather, it’s okay to switch between heating and cooling your home. Your thermostat can handle it, and if your heating and cooling system is still working it can most likely handle it too. Most heating and cooling systems can last between 15-20 years, but you should consider scheduling regular maintenance to help extend the life of your system, especially if it’s at the 10-year mark.
So even though your system can handle you switching between heating and cooling your home, you do want to make sure that your furnace filter is clean and changed regularly during the year to keep your system at optimal efficiency, ensure your indoor air quality is at its best, and that you are saving all you can on energy bills.
Know When It’s Time to Recharge or Replace Your System
If you’re considering saving more in the long-term and doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint, you can always look into replacing your heating and cooling system with a heat pump option. There are plenty of heat pump options to choose from and they’re a great choice if you’re looking for one option that can both heat and cool your home and they work well with solar panels. If your home is using solar panels to generate electricity, you can use that in combination with a heat pump to heat your home in the winter.
