Why You Should Replace Your Heating System in 2021

Written by: Metro Air

The new year is here! It’s a fresh start. Why not give your home’s heating system a new beginning, too? We understand that replacing your heating system is a financial decision that will take some time to consider. Thankfully, there are some great affordable solutions that will help you stay comfortable while saving energy and money in the long run. A ductless system is one of those options!

What does a ductless system do?
We are in the middle of a bitterly cold Midwest winter. That means your home’s heating system is working hard to keep you warm! Then, fast forward to the summer months and think about how humid things get here! Tired of having to deal with bulky air conditioners in the summer and high heating bills with an inefficient furnace in the winter? Ductless heat pumps provide heating AND cooling in one machine! Simply use the system’s remote control to switch the settings and enjoy heating or air conditioning, whenever you need it.

What are the benefits of a ductless system?
Some people in our area pay incredibly high utility bills each month, especially in the winter. Ductless systems can help reduce those costs! These are some of the most energy efficient systems available and once they’re installed, you will notice a big difference in your energy bill. Not to mention, because they use less energy, you will be doing your part to help reduce your carbon footprint and take care of the environment.

And as the name suggests, ductless systems do not use any ductwork, either. This is a versatile option for homes, garages, shops, older historic homes, or accessory dwelling units that may not have traditional HVAC ductwork. The indoor units are usually installed high on one wall, in the ceiling, or on the floor. They won’t negatively impact your home’s design or décor.

Some of your system options include:

-Mr. Slim Ductless Systems
-Bryant Evolution Series Ductless Systems
-Bryant Preferred Series Ductless Systems
-Bryant Legacy Line Ductless Systems
-Mitsubishi Ductless Air Conditioners

So if you’re building a home, remodeling your home, or adding on to your home, consider adding a ductless system! Or perhaps you simply need to upgrade your outdated system in 2021. We provide various financing options and will work with you to find the right system for your budget.

How to Cool Older Homes

Written by: Metro Air

Older homes are usually full of history and charm. Unfortunately, they often don’t have the ductwork system that modern homes are accustomed to, which means air conditioning could be non-existent. If your older home was built 50+ years ago, you can still enjoy the benefit of quality air conditioning in your home. Here’s how.

Ductless heating and cooling systems are one of the best inventions in the last few decades and they have become one of the best and most popular ways to provide energy efficient cooling to your home. And better yet: they can also provide heating during the cold winter months – all in one system! These units do not require ductwork but instead, utilize an exterior heat pump that is connected to interior head units that distribute the air-conditioned air or heat to the home. One outside unit can support several interior air handling units. That means your home will stay evenly cooled all summer long. You decide what temperature is the most comfortable and with a touch of a button, you have a cool, comfortable home!

Ductless systems can be installed high on the wall, in the ceiling or near the floor. We will talk to you about which options are best! Our mini-split ductless systems include:

  • Mitsubishi Ductless Air Conditioners
  • Mr. Slim Ductless Systems
  • Bryant Evolution Series Ductless Systems
  • Bryant Preferred Series Ductless Systems

We love the flexibility and energy savings that ductless mini splits provide. Want to know more about the details of these systems? We are happy to talk to you about this option for your home! Warm weather is on its way and it is important to think about how you will cool your home this year. Spring is one of the most popular times to get a new air conditioning system installed!  We will come take a look at the unique layout and design of your older home so we can determine which options are best for you and your budget.
