Ductless Systems: The Importance of Proper Sizing

Monday, January 30th, 2017

ductless-systems-proper-sizingWhen you are seeking a way to most efficiently heat and cool your home, you can’t do much better than having a zoned HVAC system installed. Zoning allows you to have multiple air handlers and subsequent thermostats throughout your home, so that you can customize the temperature in each room. Not only is this more efficient than any other option—you don’t have to heat or cool unoccupied rooms—but it’s also a great way to prevent family arguments as everyone has control over their own temperature!
