Outdoor Electrical Safety – GFCIMay 7, 2022
Suppose you live in an older house that has no air conditioning and baseboard heat. Your house also has a small attic with no room for air ducts. You are sick and tired of those noisy window air units and the portable ones are almost just as noisy and a hassle to deal with. Wouldn't it be nice to have a quieter system that doesn't need duct space and will provide nice, cool air in the summer? No, it's not impossible. Have you ever heard of a mini-split?
Mini-split systems are the perfect solution for a house where the alternative is a window unit or a portable unit - which still has to exhaust out the window, and may require draining the condensation (portable units) thus requiring set up and take down every season and a bit of hassle in between.
Additionally, some mini split systems not only cool in the summer but heat in the winter. You can use them as supplemental heating in a room that doesn't stay warm enough or as a primary source of heat if you don't want to use your boiler.
Mini-split systems are also economical to purchase and install.
If you would like more information about a mini-split system in your house, call Peter Needham Electrical and HVAC and let him give you an estimate for your mini-split system. You might be pleasantly surprised at how easy and affordable it is to get some cool air flowing in your house this summer.
