Start 2018 with a Better Heating System

Reason Why Ductless Heating (And Cooling) Is Beneficial

Monday, December 19th, 2016

img_3361It wasn’t long ago that the idea of providing central heating and cooling to a home without using ductwork was unthinkable. Even if you didn’t have a heating system that used ducts, there was still the AC. Unless you wanted to use window units—not an attractive or effective alternative—your home needed extensive ductwork for central comfort.
