Smiling young male HVAC technician from Bud Anderson.Bud Anderson Home Services logo. This time of year in Arkansas we get to experience 3-4 seasons all in one month (if not all in one week) making it hard to regulate the temperature in your home. Many homeowners are concerned about breaking or wearing out their system by switching back and forth. There is actually no harm in flipping the switch from heat to cool and back again so you can stay comfortable. Most systems now ac-tually have a delay so when you change modes, it protects your compressor.
However, it is 2022, and there is an easier way. Today we have smart thermostats and newer thermostats that have automat-ic changeover features. Just set your temperature rating to whatever you are comfortable with in heat and cool mode and it automatically switches for you.
Switching back and forth between heating and cooling during the spring and fall is not necessarily bad for your HVAC system. But to make sure that it doesn’t become damaged, it is import-ant to have one of Bud Anderson’s qualified technicians perform regular maintenance on your unit.

What Our Customers Say

Great Customer Service!

I called other companies; some couldn’t get me in for 2 weeks or never called back. Due to having no power in multiple outlets throughout my home, Bud Anderson was able to schedule me first thing in the morning. I like the text updates, who your Technician will be, as well as they are on their way. Dwayne was professional, knowledgeable, and explained everything. Great Customer Service skills! Thank-you~

Quick Response!

Service call scheduled and completed in a quick manner. Aaron definitely knows heating and air systems and took the time to explain the issues and come up with a maintenance plan in the future. I strongly recommend this company.

Daron S.

Professional Service!

Furnace went out during this ridiculous weather and Bud Anderson was the only place I could get through to. First, they made sure I had another heat source (I did) then they arrived very quickly considering the weather. Problem was solved in a timely fashion and now my wife and kids will be very happy! Very professional service!
