I called the Heating and A/C corporation rep yesterday because there was a major question I had to ask.
My fantastic friend Jim and I knew my friend and I needed current a/c before summer, and our central heating system was much older than the A/C unit.
Jim and I had been discussing having a mini break ductless Heating and A/C installed because it was less work, and more efficient. Before making a final decision about ductless Heating and A/C system, I wanted to see if it would have survived the downside temperatures my friend and I had. I asked the dude who answered the phone, if I could talk to someone who had experience with installing mini break ductless Heating and A/C units? She asked me to hold a moment while she got the owner of the Heating and A/C corporation on the phone. When he spoke, he told me had mini break ductless Heating and A/C in his condo and wanted to see what our question was. I asked if they had any problems during the few weeks when my friend and I were experiencing below zero temperatures. He said that he had a fireplace in his house. They kept the fireplace running when it was that cold, however the ductless Heating and A/C was holding its own. He asked me if I needed alternative heating those many weeks, or if our heating system was working well? Jim had said he was blissful my friend and I had the fireplace, because no matter how fantastically the heating system ran, it would still have been freezing cold in the house. He said he had no problem with the heating even when it was in the lower teens, however the fireplace always gave more comfort when you were dealing with such bone chilling temps.
