This is one of the best ways to supply your entire home with heating, but it does have some drawbacks.

Multi-Zone Heating Systems Can Lower Your Bills

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

ductless-heating-systemTemperatures are cooling with the arrival of fall, and soon enough winter will be here. If you’re in the market for a new heating system, now is the time to buy. You still have several weeks of comparatively warm weather to plan and execute a new installation, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of the new system all winter. Most of us are accustomed to either boilers or forced-air furnaces in our homes, both of which work quite well. But if your home can’t support such systems, or if you’re looking for a way to lower the costs of heating without skimping on quality, there’s another option.

Why Should You Have a Ductless Mini Split Installed?

Monday, April 11th, 2016

With temperatures mellowing out, it’s almost time to shut off your heater for the season and turn your thoughts to air conditioning. Perhaps you are considering replacing your current air conditioner before summer begins. If so, it’s important to know you have many options when it comes to cooling systems. One of these options is the Mitsubishi ductless mini split, also referred to as a ductless air conditioner.

Just as the name implies, ductless systems don’t require ducts to function. Rather, a Mitsubishi ductless mini split system serves as a heat pump. It pulls warmth from the air into the system and distributes cooled air through a series of mini air handlers in your home. In the winter time, this process can be reversed to provide you with heat. Why should you consider this as your AC choice though?

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

The most common way for a home to receive central heating is with a forced-air system. A larger blower fan sends heated air from a furnace or a heat pump into a ventilation network. The ducts transport the air to rooms vent to provide various parts of the house with warmth. When people think of heating a home without ducts, they usually imagine a radiant heating system such as a boiler. However, it’s possible to have forced-air heating without any ductwork at all. It’s call a ductless mini split system.
