Call on professionals to help you through these three steps so that you be assured that you will have the final results you desire. Continue Reading
Ductless split systems, also known as ductless mini split heat pumps, are an increasingly popular way for homes to enjoy central heating and cooling without the necessity of extensive ductwork. Because ductless systems use smaller blower units than a central AC or heater and do not gain or lose heat through duct walls, they perform at higher energy efficiency. They also allow for greater freedom when designing or remodeling a home since they remove space-consuming ductwork from the equation. Continue Reading
We can answer the question in the title very quickly: “No, there shouldn’t be ice on your air conditioner. If there is, call for professional repairs right away.”
If you would like to know more about why ice might appear on an AC and why it is something that you don’t want to happen, please follow us below the jump.

- A geothermal heat pump: Using the stable heat of the earth, you can both heat and cool your home with greater energy efficiency than a standard heat pump, air conditioner, or furnace. Geothermal systems also have immense longevity.
- Zone control system: Your central heating and cooling system doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing proposition that sends heated or cooled air to every room whenever it turns on. Installing a zone control system allows you to divide the house into separate “zones” with individual comfort controls.
A question that some homeowners ask about geothermal heat pumps is if they can be fitted for a zone control system. The answer is: absolutely! Continue Reading

The standard way that a central air conditioner sends out cool air through a building is within a network of ducts. These ducts are attached to a large air handler in the indoor unit, which is connected to an outdoor condenser where the heat removed from the indoor air is released. Continue Reading
A well-installed storage water heater that receives annual maintenance from professionals should last 20 years, or possibly more, before it needs to be replaced. During that period, the water heater should deliver a reliable supply of hot water to a household. You’ll have a good idea of how much work you can put on your water heater before the water supply goes cold.
If you still have old manual thermostats in your home, or no-frills digital thermostats, it’s time to upgrade to new technology. Thermostats are more than just the devices you use to communicate with your air conditioner and heater. They can make your life more convenient, improve comfort, and help save money.
