Floor-mounted air conditioners are similar in design and function to split systems. They have an indoor air handler and an outdoor unit. The only difference with conventional mini-splits is the installation process. Floor-mounted mini-splits are installed near the floor and have vents on the top, bottom, or both sides of the unit. They are easy to install and practical in most homes. Below are some factors that make a floor-mounted mini-split ideal for residential cooling.
With summer quickly approaching, you may have decided that it is time for you to either install a new cooling system or replace the old one in your house. While researching various models and sizes, you may have started to feel overwhelmed about all of the choices and are hesitant to make a decision on your own. If this is the case, consider contacting a professional to guide you before making your final choice.
Every time the cold season sets in, you count on your furnace to keep the house comfortable for your loved ones and avert seasonal problems like burst pipes. But, since your heating system remains off for many months due to the warm weather, it can get damaged, and you may not realize it.

So, how will you know that it's time to call your HVAC technician to repair your heating unit?

You need to engage skilled HVAC repair services to inspect, diagnose and fix whatever problem is causing poor airflow.

How does mold creep into your HVAC system, and how do you deal with the problem?
