Monday, October 19th, 2015

“Winter” in St. Augustine, FL is a somewhat debatable season, but that’s what makes our area such a good climate for using a heat pump: the consistent warm temperatures.

The bottom line, though, with a heat pump system is that it is a 2-in-1 device, so it runs for most of the year. This is very different from having two separate systems, one providing heat and the other providing cool air.
