When you live somewhere like Jacksonville, nobody needs to tell you twice about how hot it gets here…and how much hotter the relative humidity makes it feel. Therefore, when we do have the short—but cold—winter nights, the temperature can come as a bit of a shock! When that does happen, you’ll want to make sure that you have a fully functioning heater, for however short of a time you’ll need it.
If you’re like many homeowners throughout Florida, you may have a heat pump to cool your home during the warmer months and heat it in the wintertime. Of course, it’s going to get considerably more use during the summer, not to mention spring and fall, than it is in the winter. However it is a two-in-one system and therefore requires attention more than just once a year.
