Monday, February 19th, 2024

We discourage people from attempting to repair their HVAC systems on their own. We’re even more adamant when it comes to trying amateur repairs on a furnace. Some basic troubleshooting is fine—we encourage that—but anything that involves taking out tools and tinkering around inside the furnace is off-limits. It’s that’s not just us saying that. In many jurisdictions, it’s illegal for anyone to work on a gas furnace unless they have proper certification. It’s an issue of safety: for you, your family, and your neighborhood.

We’re going to go through several common furnace repairs that you must leave to the professionals. If you’re in any doubt about whether you need a furnace repair in Greenville, SC or not, don’t hesitate to call us. Caution is the best method when it comes to a malfunctioning furnace.

Ductless mini splits are changing the ways that people heat and cool their homes. Instead of needing to rely on a built-in network of ducts and a central cooling and heating system, they can instead install a ductless mini split that uses wall-mounted air handlers (all connected to a single outdoor unit) to send conditioned air around the home. 

But what if your home already has ductwork? Does that mean there’s no reason to have a ductless mini split installation in Greenville, SC? Not necessarily. Ductless mini splits are flexible devices that can serve different purposes. You can use this flexibility in your home as well.

The Best Benefits of Choosing a Ductless AC/Heating System

Monday, September 4th, 2023

Once upon a time, there were only two options available for a home when it came to air conditioning:

  • Multiple window air conditioning units
  • A central air conditioning system using ductwork

These two choices didn’t offer much space between them: if a house didn’t have ductwork, it had to use window ACs or else go through the expense of having parts of the house remodeled to add it. Window ACs were ugly, inconvenient, and low-powered.

However, now there’s a third option: ductless mini split heat pumps. These systems combine the benefits of central air conditioning (you can have cooling throughout the house) with window ACs (no need to add ducts or modify the house in any way). Plus, they come with additional benefits that make them arguably the best all-around choice. We’ll explain the top benefits of considering ductless AC in Greenville, SC for your house.
