Which Homes Benefit the Most from Ductless Systems?

Monday, December 5th, 2016

Ductless heating and air conditioning systems adopt a decentralized approach to heating and cooling your home: installing multiple units throughout your home, each charged with heating or cooling a single room or section. That provides a number of benefits, including the ability to set different temperature in different rooms to match individual comfort levels, and the ability to shut off the heat in parts of the home you aren’t using (thus saving you a great deal on monthly bills.) It’s a reliable system, but it works for some homes better than others, and if you’re thinking about having a ductless system installed, you might wonder whether yours is best suited to it. Only you can make that final decision, but we’ve included a few guidelines below to help you.

Steps to Take When a Ductless Heating Unit Breaks Down

Monday, October 24th, 2016

One of the big benefits of ductless heating and air conditioning systems is that when one unit suffers a breakdown, it doesn’t shut off the heat to the whole house. Even if it occurs in a central part of your house like the living room or the kitchen, you can easily move to a separate part of your Newport Beach, CA home — one with a functioning ductless unit — to wait for repairs to take place. But there are additional steps you should take to keep the heat in your home that the levels you want and to avoid wasting undue amounts of energy. The good news is that ductless systems are designed to make these steps very easy, and can preserve the comfort levels in your home even while you wait for the repair service.

Trust a Heat Pump for Winter and Summer Alike

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

Newport Beach, CA has the benefit of being on the coast, where temperatures are milder than they are elsewhere in Southern California. That doesn’t change the fact that we still get our share of hot days, as last week’s heat wave proved.

We often recommend heat pumps for our clients in the area, which do the job of a heater and an air conditioner all in one stroke.  Now is the perfect time of year to install one, before winter sets in. Here’s a quick look at how they work.

Schedule Maintenance for Your Ductless AC Today!

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Ductless air conditioning systems are a great fit for Newport Beach, CA homes, but just like any other system, it requires care to keep functioning at its best. The good news about ductless systems is that breakdowns tend to be limited to a single unit, which means you can typically run the air in other parts of the house and stay cool while waiting for the repair service. But better than dealing with a breakdown is preventing on in the first place, and for that you need a maintenance session from a trained air conditioning technician. When performed once or twice a year, it will improve the system’s performance, as well as giving the technician a chance to check for more serious issues that may eventually result in a breakdown.

How to Maintain a Ductless Heat Pump

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Heat pumps are a clever wrinkle on the traditional notion of air conditioning. If you’ve ever passed by the outdoor portion of a traditional centralized air conditioner and felt the hot air blowing out of the vents, you can see the concept in action. Air conditioners need to release that heat as part of the cooling process. Heat pumps simply “reverse” the cycle when it gets chilly: releasing the cool air outside and the warm air inside and allowing it to serve as a heater and an air conditioner in one. Ductless heat pumps make a lot of sense here in Newport Beach, CA, helping to warm your home during our mild winters and pocket a great deal of saving in monthly costs in the bargain. But like every other appliance in your home,l a ductless heat pump needs regular maintenance and care to perform properly. Here are some easy steps you can take to do so.
