Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems: A Great Alternative

Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems: A Great Alternative

Do you have room additions in your home that are hard to heat and cool efficiently? Do you have complicated ductwork in your home, or are you ready to install a new HVAC unit? An alternative to the traditional duct system, the ductless system may be right for you. Ductless heating and cooling systems are: Flexible: They can be installed in single or multi family homes; units can be installed near the floor, in the ceiling, or even mounted high on walls. A ductless heat pump can be installed in a single room that’s difficult to climate-control, or throughout an entire home. Single units can even be installed to climate control different areas of the home in different ways: for example, to cool down a hot kitchen and warm up a spare bedroom! Finally, ductless systems have the ability to operate at multiple speeds and can be tailored to the individual needs of the room, unlike traditional duct systems, which operate at one speed for all rooms. Energy Efficient: Ductless heating and cooling can be the perfect energy-saving solution for those areas of the home that are difficult to heat and cool. Some units qualify for utility rebates from local power companies. You can read more about energy efficiency, utility bill savings, and ductless systems from the Bonneville Power Administration here. Depending on the floor plan and ductwork of your home, ductless systems can offer short and long-term savings as well as increased indoor air quality and comfort. Like traditional HVAC systems, they will need servicing from a professional technician once every 1-3 years, and regular air filter cleanings.... read more
The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Why is indoor air quality so important? Winter is coming and now is the time to think about your indoor air quality. Did you ever think the air inside your home could be more contaminated than the air outside? It can! During the summer months we have dust, smoke, pollens, and other air born particulates and allergens that can clog up a filter or your air conditioning coil. But in the winter we leave our homes closed up to the outdoors, which can create an even worse environment with all of these same pollutants as well as cold and flu viruses. During the winter months we leave windows and doors shut so we can heat our homes, but this can create a petri dish of bacteria and viruses right along with a noticeable buildup of dust and pet hair. Because your home’s heating system moves this air around throughout your home it’s critical to look at what you use to filter your air. Ductwork off of your central HVAC system can be cleaned professionally to remove years of build-up and aid in cleaning your indoor air, usually every 7-10 years is recommended. Periodically cleaning the grills and registers throughout your home can also help reduce transmission of dust and dirt into your system. Whatever does make it into your ductwork will then have to be captured by your filter. The average throw-away paper or mesh filter has about a 30-90 day lifespan. They typically carry a M.E.R.V. (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating anywhere form 4-10. The MERV rating is a standard for measuring the effectiveness of an air filter... read more
Tankless vs. Traditional Water Heaters

Tankless vs. Traditional Water Heaters

Which Hot Water Heater is Right for your Home? Hot water and how it’s heated is not something you typically think about during your day-to-day activities, however when you don’t have warm water for your bath, shower or even dish washing, you certainly realize how important it is to a comfortable home. Water heaters typically come in two varieties: tankless and traditional holding tank. A traditional hot water heater consistently heats water to a set temperature in a large tank so that it is ready for usage.  In comparison, a tankless option heats water on-demand as water flows through various pipes to its final destination. Many proponents of tankless heaters use them because of energy efficiency. Here are a few considerations that might help you determine which type of water heater is best for your home. How Much Does a Water Heater Cost? Traditional hot water heaters generally cost about half of what you would pay for a tankless variety.  Additionally, tankless heaters might require additional remodeling and retrofitting if you are putting them into an existing home. This could include additional plumbing and electrical work, which will add to the higher up-front cost of the unit.    While tankless units might cost you up-front, they will save you money down the road. According to Energy.gov, homes that use tankless water heaters may be up to 34% more energy efficient than traditional hot water heaters. How Much Space Does a Water Heater Take Up? Tankless hot water heaters are about 3ft tall by 1-1/2ft wide, making them easy to install in a small space such as a utility closet. This makes... read more
