Help! One of the Units of My Ductless System Isn’t Working

Monday, November 5th, 2018

Closeup view about using some appliance such as air condition.There are a number of great benefits to using a ductless mini split to both heat and cool your home—high efficiency, zone control heating and cooling, less dust and dirt blown out due to the lack of air ducts, and versatility in installation.

One benefit that doesn’t get brought up that much is the fact that ductless systems use multiple air handlers, with individualized temperature control. These are small wall units placed in different rooms and areas of the home, rather than you using a single air handler for the whole-home. So when one unit, or rather one air handler, stops working, you don’t have to lose ALL your heating or cooling—just that one area.

Does Your Ductless System Need Maintenance?

Monday, November 6th, 2017

hands adjusting air handler of a ductless systemBecause of how they look, ductless air conditioning and heating systems often get mistaken for window or portable air conditioning units. They do have many of the same components, but the configuration of the two is much different. Ductless systems, for instance, have an indoor unit and separate outdoor condenser. Due to their complexity, they necessitate extra care.

Taking care of your investment includes scheduling Sugar Land, TX HVAC maintenance for your ductless system on a regular basis. Because this is a heating and a cooling system in one, you should have this maintenance done twice a year—ideally once in spring to precede the cooling season and once in fall, before you need the heat. Keep reading to learn why ductless system maintenance is so essential!

Furnace Check Up: Yes, It’s That Time of Year

Monday, February 13th, 2017

furnace-check-upSure, we might not get as much use out of our furnace systems as other parts of the country—say, in the Midwest and East Coast. That doesn’t mean, however, that we can neglect caring for our heaters. If you haven’t scheduled your professional Richmond, TX furnace maintenance appointment yet, don’t worry—it’s not too late! We can perform your furnace check-up any time of the year—though we do highly recommend this service be done at least once per year.

There are many reasons to have your furnace professionally maintained on a yearly basis, and safety is a huge one, particularly if it is a gas-powered system. Today’s gas-powered systems are designed for maximum safety and efficiency, however, the combustion process involved with gas still means that there is a risk. Even minor damage to a furnace can cause gas leakage in your home, making you ill or worse. As vital as your safety is, however, this is not the only reason you should have your furnace checked.
