Once I purchased my first home, I realized that I needed to do my part in caring for my home appliances. In addition to reading the user manuals for my kitchen appliances and state-of-the-art plumbing system, I realized that I also needed to do a little research about HVAC. Because I had no experience with HVAC systems, I called out a professional to teach me a thing or two. It was fascinating to talk with him, and I was able to take notes about all kinds of important topics, such as maintenance, troubleshooting, and even shopping for a new system. This blog is all about understanding HVAC guidelines.

FAIHS is more energy-efficient than traditional heating systems and can heat spaces faster. Due to their convenience and cost, these heating systems are probably the most widely used in American homes.

Ductless heating systems typically take the form of mini-split heat pump units. As the name implies, these systems don't rely on interior ductwork or plumbing to provide heating for your home. Mini-split systems are independent units consisting of an outdoor condenser, indoor head, and some relatively straightforward plumbing and wiring to connect the two. While many people might associate ductless systems with air conditioning, heat pumps are also a viable form of heating for your home.
