When my wife told me there was something wrong with the old oil furnace, I sighed heavily.
I knew that it was coming where we would have to upgrade to a nicer heating system.
I wasn’t looking forward to the expense, but I did have enough money saved up to get something new. I suggested to my wife that we just rely on the fireplace since our winters never got too freezing. She became serious and said there was no way we were going to split wood all the time just to remain cozy in the winter season. I never really liked the oil furnace much because of the high price of oil to be refilled sometimes twice per heating season. I ended up calling the HVAC company to see what our options were like. I was surprised when the HVAC professional told me about ductless mini splits and how it would be perfect for our heating and cooling needs. I didn’t think the old A/C unit needed to be replaced too because it was working fine, but the ductless mini split doesn’t rely on ductwork and you have HVAC zone control. That basically means that you can have customized heating and cooling in different zones of the house. The heating system also works as low as negative 5 degrees which is impressive. Our winters are so mild though, it rarely even gets down to the teens, but you still want to be prepared for drops in temperatures. So I decided to schedule the installation for the ductless mini split and it’s the most amazing HVAC system ever! The energy bills are extremely low which I love and we even hooked up the smart feature so we can adjust the temperature control settings remotely with a smart app on our phone!
