The HVAC business is full of terms that the typical homeowner may not fully understand.
As I have come to learn, when you are looking to buy new air conditioning equipment, the best thing is to consult a cooling expert.
I knew that a mini-split air conditioner could also be a heat pump. The latter is the technology used, and the former is a ductless form of that technology. The ac technology has various advantages, such as no HVAC duct is needed. Therefore you do not need to worry about heat lost through the conduits, leading to a higher energy bill. The other advantage is that you do not have to pay for services such as duct sealing. The constant thing across all systems is the air conditioning tune-up, which is necessary every once or twice a year. A while back, I had an issue with indoor air quality. I did not let the case run for a long time because the repairs turned out to be very expensive the last time. I immediately called the cooling specialist to fix it. The one who came must have been a new contractor because I had not met her before. She told me all about zoning, and I decided to install a zone control system. The temperature control system was much easier than anticipated with an intelligent thermostat. There is still much to learn out there, but I take it at a time. I will likely research something if I have a problem related to it or I accidentally stumble upon it. the necessity of it means that you are very likely to commit it t memory
