If you have some familiarity with the heat pump, then you know that the major advantage of this comfort system installation is that it can operate as both a cooling and heating system.

But what if you notice the AC isn’t giving your house the even cooling treatment it’s supposed to? You can expect some temperature fluctuations in the house based on room placement, insulation, and window exposure. However, if you find rooms are much hotter than they should be while others are fine (or even too cold), you have a problem with the HVAC system.
