Ductless...Great for Realtors

July 29, 2017

We recently received a call from someone who had scheduled a free, in-home estimate with us for a ductless heat pump. He contacted us because a home he was selling needed an updated heating system. But on the advice of his Realtor, he decided to cancel his appointment...She convinced him that a new, energy-efficient ductless system was not worth the investment. It occurred to me that there may be many Realtors who would benefit from learning about the advantages of Ductless for the Real Estate industry.

Is Your Home Leaking?

June 26, 2017

If your utility bills seem extraordinarily high, or you can’t seem to get warm (or cool) despite constantly adjusting the thermostat, consider having a home energy audit performed. A home energy audit will give you information about your home’s energy performance. This simple evaluation can help you make the decision to upgrade to a more efficient heating and air conditioning system, such as a ductless heat pump, or just manage the causes of energy loss. Professional home energy auditors may use a blower door test, thermography, or a combination of both to determine the sources of your home or building’s air leaks, thus energy loss.

Surviving a Cold Snap!

January 15, 2017

The Northwest cold snap is about to end! It was a bit harsh...The lake near our house stayed frozen for about two weeks lessening the available open water for the ducks and geese who live on it, driving was a bit more treacherous than usual, and I’m sure that a few of my plants will not be around come Spring. Such is the Nature of Life.

Being Grateful in 2017

January 1, 2017

This New Year’s, we celebrated by being thankful for all the good things that we've enjoyed this year. Today, we honored the day by having a traditional family meal with all of the trimmings. It was peaceful, pleasant and in no time, we needed a walk. We ended up going for a walk around a local lake. The North wind was really kicking up and it was frigid. Despite bundling up and walking fast, we were quite frozen by the time we were done.

Stylish and Sleek Indoor Unit

November 28, 2016

The indoor head of a Ductless Heat Pump is the unit that is mounted on the wall and distributes heat or air conditioning. Inside the indoor head, or unit, air moves through coils that heat (or cool) air from outside. That air is circulated throughout the room to keep the temperature consistent and comfortable. The appearance of the indoor wall-mounted unit has stayed pretty much the same. But now, we’re happy to be able to offer a sleek and stylish indoor unit head option for multi-zone systems: The Daikin Emura Indoor Unit.
