When considering a new air conditioner and furnace for your home or business, you can choose between central air conditioning or ductless. The factors that you should consider in your final decision include installation costs, long-term costs of repairs, rebates, and efficiency (energy costs).
Each type of system has its own advantages and disadvantages, but the specifics of your situation will go a long way in determining what system is right for your home/business. Before making a decision, it is best to sit with a licensed and highly-experienced comfort advisor to review the options.
Duct systems have both outdoor and indoor components that are connected to one another by system of ducts. The cool air is circulated throughout your home through ducts by an air handler. Through zoning the duct system can be quite energy efficient by enabling the creation of different climates in different parts of your home / office by setting different temperatures for each space.
Ductless systems are ideal when ductwork is very-costly or impossible to install. Instead of relying on ductwork, the indoor units are mounted on the wall or in the ceiling. The efficiency of a ductless system is based on its delivery of warm or cool air directly into rooms of your home or business, instead of through routing through ducts. A central ac system is controlled through a mounted thermostat, while ductless systems are controlled by its operating zone. Ductless units are commonly used in new construction, additions, and multi-family housing.
Today we had our heating ducts cleaned for the first time in many years. What a difference it has made to the air quality in our home! Jamal and his associate Anthony did an excellent job and were a pleasure to work with. We’ve been customers of AMHAC for years and their service is always impeccable. We highly recommend them.
I called them. They were very polite and professional on the phone. On short notice they sent a serviceman to my house. The serviceman came over within the timeframe they said he would. He did a thorough job, gave me a detailed explanation and fixed the issue. He didn’t try to sell anything I need. He just gave me the facts and I made a decision. I trust this company and will be coming back to the in future. Update: I have been using AMHAC for all my HVAC needs. Roger and team are great to work with. High quality work. Very reasonable. I would give more stars if I could.
I called AMHAC to schedule our semi-annual maintenance visit for our heating system. Raymond, who answered the phone, was very polite and helped arrange a suitable day/time for the visit. Our technician Desmond called 20 minutes before arriving to let me know he was coming. He was very courteous and efficient as he checked out our two systems and also noted that our whole house humidifier needed to be plugged in and the valve to the water supply hose needed to be slightly opened -- thanks Desmond!
