We’re writing this blog post during the first full week of summer, and the last thing we want to do is distract you from thoughts of fireworks, cookouts, and relaxing by the beach.

Having said that...what will your home heating bill look like this winter? It’s not too early to think about these things. This is the time of year in which utility companies begin offering customers the chance to lock-in prices through payment plans.

If you’re looking for energy efficient heating systems for your home, and choosing between oil and gas furnaces, choose wisely. Both types of heat have their advantages and drawbacks, so it’s important to study your options before you decide.

For as long as we’ve lived indoors, we’ve looked for ways to keep our homes warm or cool, depending on the season.

There was a time where that just meant building a fire or opening some windows. We’ve come a long way since those days: central heating, central air, and now, programmable thermostats.

This HVAC feature has quickly become the standard in new homes, and making the switch in older homes is simpler than you might imagine. If you’re not sure if a programmable AC thermostat is right for your home, consider these benefits:

Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner

Are you considering ductless air conditioning for your home? Maybe something along the lines of a ductless mini-split air conditioner?

If that’s the case, here are a few things you should know:

1. You’ll get a flexible cooling method

Traditional central air forces cooled air through ducts, a ductless system brings air directly into different zones of your home. These systems are made up of a small outdoor unit and a at least one indoor unit.

You might see them referred to as split-systems or multi-split systems. Whatever their name, this cooling method gives home owners a cost-effective way to replace outdated window units.

2. You’ll save money

A major factor driving homeowners to invest in a ductless mini-split air conditioner is the savings involved. An inefficient cooling system can quickly drive up your monthly energy costs.

A ductless system uses less power than a forced-air system and delivers cooled air with more efficiency. And because a multi-split system lets you create zones around your home, you won’t need to cool rooms that you aren’t using.

Aside from the savings you’ll get from a lower energy bill, you may also be eligible for a tax credit or utility rebate for the year in which you install your ductless system.
