Make Your Whole Home Comfortable with Ductless Heating

woman lounges on couch using ductless heatingWith the arrival of autumn, many people start to think about the chilly weather ahead and getting their homes prepared once the cooler weather rolls in. If you have a space in your home that doesn’t have heating, you might be wondering how to make it a room you’ll be able to use all year long. Many people worry about using space heaters in these areas for a variety of reasons.

While today’s models are safer than their predecessors, you still need to remember to turn space heaters off when the room is not in use, and they tend to use a lot of energy. Fortunately, there’s a great alternative that can help keep your addition or converted space comfortable, even when the outdoor temperatures start to dip down – ductless heating.

What is ductless heating?

Additions, converted attics and garages, and finished basements often do not have access to your home’s duct system, and adding ductwork to those areas can be a costly and messy venture. A ductless heating system operates independently of your home’s heating system, so you can add heating to spaces in your home without a lot of muss and fuss.

Ductless systems typically use heat pumps to operate, and the outdoor and indoor units are connected by a small-diameter conduit. Your heating technician will be able to install your unit quickly, so you’ll have heat for your space in no time.

What are some of the benefits of ductless heating?

Aside from the fact that a ductless heating system can make your home more comfortable throughout, there are a few other benefits you’ll enjoy when you install a ductless heating system in your home:

  • Energy Efficiency: Heat pumps generally are highly energy efficient, which means you can add ductless heating to your home without worrying that your energy bills will go through the roof. In fact, it can even help your current heating system operate more efficiently because it won’t have to work so hard delivering heat to your entire home.
  • Clean Heating: Ductless heating systems don’t require fossil fuels or gas in order to operate, which can eliminate the potential release of carbon monoxide that can occur with gas or kerosene space heating.
  • Improved Year-Round Comfort: As an added bonus, your ductless heating system will allow for cooling in the summer. That’s because ductless heat pumps transfer heat from one space to another. In the winter, they extract heat from the outdoor air and pump it into your home, and do the opposite in the summer. So, it’s like having a heater and an air conditioner in one!
  • Quiet Operation: Ductless heating and cooling equipment provides whisper-quiet operation, making it the perfect choice for a guest bedroom or home theater room.
  • Longevity: Heat pumps last a long time with minimal maintenance. Keeping the filter clean and calling Stafford Mechanical Services for yearly maintenance is pretty much all you’ll need to do to keep your ductless system in good working order.

Keep Your Whole Home Cool with Ductless

woman relaxing on couch using remote to control ductless unitMost people enjoy the fun in the sun that the summer months have to offer, but they also like being able to escape the heat in a cool, comfortable home. Some may find, though, that there are areas of their home that are simply not as cool as they’d like once the outdoor temperatures start to rise.

If you have an addition, a space that has been converted into a living area (such as a garage or attic), or a finished basement, those areas may not be connected to your central air conditioning system. If that’s the case, ductless cooling may be the right solution for you. In this article, we’ll talk about the advantages of adding a ductless air conditioning system to your home.

How can ductless improve my comfort and help keep my home cool?

Ductless cooling offers many benefits, whether you choose it to keep a single area in your home cool, or the entire house. For people who don’t have ductwork in their homes (for instance, homes with radiant or baseboard heat), ductless air conditioning is a great option. And, as we mentioned above, it also works well in areas of the home that don’t have access to the duct system like additions or converted spaces. Here are a few reasons why you might consider ductless for your home cooling needs:

  • Energy Efficiency: Ductless cooling is a very efficient air conditioning choice. It is much more efficient than window air conditioning, and when used in conjunction with a central air conditioning system, it can help keep your home cooler and help your existing AC system work more efficiently as well.
  • Ease of Installation: If your home doesn’t have ductwork, a ductless system will be far easier to install than a system that needs ducts to cool your home. Adding ductwork is often impractical or even impossible. Fortunately, a ductless AC system can be installed with minimal construction, as a small-diameter hole to connect the indoor and outdoor unit is all that is needed.
  • Targeted Comfort: Because you can easily control your ductless unit via remote (or even by a smartphone application for some units), you’ll be able to keep your room at the exact temperature you’d like, simply by the push of a button.
  • Quiet Operation: Unlike window units that can be very noisy, ductless air conditioning systems are whisper-quiet, so you’ll only notice that you’re more comfortable. And, they won’t obstruct your view, as they’re usually mounted high on a wall or in the ceiling.
  • Year-Round Comfort: Many ductless systems are operated via a heat pump, so they not only can provide air conditioning during the summer months but heating during the winter. This makes them the perfect option for people who are considering replacing their old baseboard heating system.

Can Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. install ductless cooling in my home?

We can! We are pleased to offer complete ductless air conditioning services, including installation, maintenance, and repair. We can help you choose the best ductless configuration for your home, and our professional technicians will install your new system promptly.

Summer Energy Saving Tips for Your Home

Small Wooden House In Green EnvironmentNow that summer has begun, the chances are pretty good you’ve been running your air conditioning system. We all can appreciate coming in out of the heat into a cool, comfortable home. However, it can also mean a spike in our utility bills. In fact, the Department of Energy suggests that about 6% of the electricity produced in the United States is used by air conditioning. So how can you reduce the amount of energy your AC system uses as a homeowner?

Fortunately, there are quite a few different ways you can help your air conditioning system operate more effectively and efficiently. One way is by making sure you call a professional for preventive maintenance each year. If you don’t get proper maintenance, your AC system will likely not perform as well and use more energy than it would otherwise. And, there are a few measures you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioning system operate more efficiently.

5 Ways You Can Help Your AC Use Less Energy

  • Keep the Outside Unit Clean. When grass, weeds, and shrubbery grow up around the outdoor portion of your air conditioning system, it can cause it to have to use more energy to work properly. Keeping the outdoor unit free of vegetation, pests, and debris can help it operate better and more efficiently.
  • Check the Filter Regularly. Once summer is in full swing, your AC system probably is being used on a constant basis. As a result, the filter can become dirty more often, making your AC work harder and use more energy. Clean or change your filter as soon as you notice that it’s dirty.
  • Take Advantage of Ceiling Fans. Set any ceiling fans in your home to turn counterclockwise in the summer months. That helps to push the cool air down into your living space, creating a comfortable breeze.
  • Keep the Sunshine Out. Of course, we all love beautiful, sunny days. But when the sun is at its highest, draw the shades to help keep the heat at bay. Direct sunlight can quickly heat up your home, making your air conditioning system work that much harder to keep your home cool.
  • Make Sure Registers are Clear. Keeping your registers clean, and not obstructing them with furniture, rugs, and other objects allows the cool air to flow freely throughout your home. That helps your AC system deliver cooled air easily, and helps keep living areas at a more consistent temperature.

Not sure if your air conditioning system is as efficient as it should be?

Suppose you’ve noticed an increase in your energy bills, your home is not as cool as you’d like, or your indoor air seems more humid than usual. That means your air conditioning system is probably not operating at peak efficiency. It may need a cleaning and tune-up in order to operate at its best, especially if you haven’t had it maintained yet this season. If you’re concerned about your system’s efficiency, Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. can help.

At Stafford Mechanical, our expert technicians can provide you with any air conditioning services you may need, from maintenance and repair to new system installation. To learn more or to schedule an appointment with us, please give us a call at (860) 684-9485, and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Need to Update Your Home Comfort System? Consider Ductless.

young woman sits on couch using remote control for ductless systemHomeowners with electric baseboard heat often think they don’t have many options when it comes to updating their home comfort system. They may not have ductwork in their home, and they might have limited space to add ductwork for a traditional centralized system. Not to mention, adding ductwork to a home that doesn’t already have it can be a costly venture. Fortunately, today there is a great option – ductless heat pump systems.

Ductless heat pump systems do not require ductwork to operate, and there is very minimal construction required for installation. Whether a homeowner needs just one ductless unit for a room that is not attached to the home’s duct system or needs multiple units throughout for whole-home comfort, there is a ductless configuration for virtually any need. And the best part? A ductless heat pump system can offer year-round comfort.

How Ductless Can Meet Your Year-Round Comfort Needs

Most people who have baseboard electric heat know that it can be a nuisance, and often inefficient. They also know that if they want cooling in the summer, they’ll have to use window or room air conditioning, which can be cumbersome and expensive to operate. This is where a ductless heat pump system can help.

Ductless heat pump systems not only keep your home warm during the winter but can also help it stay cool in the summer. It does this by transferring heat from the air. In the colder months, it can extract heat from the air outside (yes, there is even some heat even in chillier air) and bring it indoors. Conversely, in the summer months, it can send the heat in the air inside the home outdoors. As a result, ductless serves as a heating system and cooling system in one!

How Ductless Helps You Save Money

Of course, most homeowners want to know that they’ll enjoy some energy savings when they install a new home comfort system. The good news is, ductless heat pump systems are highly efficient. In fact, ENERGY STAR estimates that ductless systems can reduce heating costs by 60 percent in comparison to an electric-based heating system, and can cut air conditioning costs by 30 percent when compared to window or room AC units. So, with ductless you’ll not only be more comfortable year-round, you’ll save on your energy bills as well!

Another way a ductless system helps homeowners save money is by providing targeted comfort from room to room. Generally speaking, each room (or zone) of a house is equipped with its own ductless unit. And since each unit is easily controlled via its own remote, you’ll have a much easier time maintaining your home’s temperature from room to room. And unlike traditional systems, ductless units do not take a long time to warm up or cool down a space.

Finally, some homeowners are concerned about the up-front cost of ductless heat pump systems versus electric baseboard systems. While ductless is a bit more expensive to install initially, there are often many rebates and incentives available on systems that can help bring the cost down. And, the overall energy savings usually quickly recoup any of the additional expense of installing a ductless system.

How to Get Ductless Heating & Cooling from Stafford Mechanical Services

Our ductless heat pump systems are of the best quality and installed in your home by our professional technicians.

Is a Cold-Climate Heat Pump Right for My Home?

family walking to a home decorated for the holidays during winterFor many people living in the Northeast, winter weather means an increase in home heating costs. While we all need heat in our homes during the cold weather, most people would like to save money if possible. Rising fuel prices have left some homeowners wondering if there are any alternatives to traditional heating that can help them save money once the chilly temperatures return. Fortunately, there are more options than ever when it comes to home heating.

Heat pumps have been around for quite a while now, but they haven’t always been a viable choice for home heating in colder climates. However, advanced technologies now allow heat pumps to operate effectively and efficiently, even in places where temperatures dip down below freezing during the winter months. Keep reading to learn more about heat pumps, and if one might be an ideal choice for your home.

What is a heat pump?

Heat pumps are home comfort systems that transfer heat using a heat exchanger, a compressor, and refrigerant-filled pipes. Heat pumps extract the heat from the outdoor air and bring it indoors. As an added bonus, heat pumps can also act as air conditioning systems, by reversing the process in the summer months. Cold-climate heat pumps are engineered to work even in sub-zero temperatures and can work as a stand-alone system, although many homeowners in very cold climates choose to have a traditional heating system as a backup.  That being said, even with a traditional, fuel-burning system, a heat pump can greatly improve energy efficiency and reduce oil consumption – and the subsequent costs.

What are my options when it comes to heat pump systems?

Heat pump systems are available in either ducted or ductless configurations. Ducted heat pumps work great in homes where people are choosing to replace an old fuel-burning system. Ducted heat pumps use the existing ductwork in the home to deliver heated air throughout your home. Ductless heat pumps, more commonly known as ductless or mini-split systems, are a great choice for homes that do not have existing ductwork and have used baseboard or radiant heat throughout the home. They also can help balance out cold spots, and heat areas of the home that may not have access to the home’s ductwork, such as additions or converted spaces.

How can a heat pump system make my home more comfortable?

There are several benefits for homeowners that heat pump systems can provide, including:

  • Better Home Comfort – Heat pump systems can offer homeowners more consistent comfort during the winter, as well as air conditioning during the summer months. Because of the all-in-one nature of a heat pump system, homeowners can look forward to better comfort year-round, all from one system.
  • Energy Savings – Most people are amazed at the energy savings they can enjoy with a heat pump system. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that heat pump systems, when compared to fuel-burning systems, can reduce the home’s energy consumption by up to 40 percent.
  • Ease of Installation – Because they don’t require ductwork, or can be used with your current duct system, heat pumps can generally be installed by a qualified professional within a day under usual circumstances, and with minimal construction.
  • Quiet Operation – The indoor and outdoor components of both a ductless and ducted heat pump system operate very quietly – as quiet as a whisper. And, a heat pump system delivers a steady supply of heated air throughout your ductwork, so you won’t have the noise of expanding and contracting ductwork to contend with.

I’d like to learn more about cold-climate heat pumps. Can Stafford Mechanical help me?

We sure can! We’re pleased to offer heat pump systems in both ductless or ducted configurations, and we can help you choose the right system for your home. We proudly service Carrier heating equipment and many other brands as well. You may contact us via phone at (860) 684-9485. We look forward to helping you with all of your heat pump needs.

Do You Have Pets? Then You Might Need These HVAC Products.

Woman and dog on couch next to a ductless unitFor many people, sharing their home with a pet is a rewarding experience. While there are all types of pets in homes across the country, in the United States, people are most likely to own dogs, cats, or both. Of the approximately 85 million households with pets across the country, more than half of them call a canine or a feline a member of their family.

With pet ownership comes responsibility, of course. Most pet owners will tell you that they view their four-legged friend as a member of the family. As a dog or cat parent, there are a few things you can do to help your pet enjoy better comfort – and help the humans in your home in the process!

Keeping Your Pet Comfortable at Home

Most families can’t spend their entire day at home with their pets and often choose to contain them in a specific area of their home while they’re away at work or school. It’s important to keep those areas comfortable for your pets, especially during the summer months. This is especially true if you need to crate your pet for any length of time. If the room you keep your pet in while you’re away from home isn’t air-conditioned, it can get uncomfortably hot for your dog or cat. Fortunately, there is an easy way to make this space in your home more pet (and human) friendly – ductless air conditioning.

Unlike window air conditioning, a ductless unit won’t block out your furry friend’s window view, because ductless systems are attached high on your wall or ceiling. You also won’t have to worry about any cords being chewed, pulled, or unplugged like you might a window unit. And, ductless is easy to control – some systems can even be attached to your Wi-Fi, so on those days when the temperatures might get unexpectedly hot, you can turn the ductless unit on for your pet remotely. What’s more, ductless AC is energy-efficient, so you’ll use less energy than you would with a window air conditioner. And, it makes the space it’s installed in more comfortable and accessible for your entire family – furry or human!

Cutting Down on Pet Fur, Dander, and Allergies: 5 Tips

Of course, sharing a home with a dog or a cat also means sharing your home with their fur and dander. And, for pet owners who may suffer from some allergies, this can cause some discomfort. Here are a few tips to help you keep your home as free from fur and dander as possible – and a few ways Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. can help, too.

  1. Groom your pet regularly. Cats and dogs can always benefit from a good brushing and occasional baths. This helps you control their shedding and keep unwanted hair (at least to a larger degree) off furniture and clothing. And, keep in mind that some dog breeds require frequent professional grooming to best keep their fur under control.
  2. Vacuum carpeted areas often. Especially in the spring and fall, when your pets tend to shed the most. You’ll want to vacuum at least weekly, and likely more often during prime shedding months. And, keep tiled and wood floors swept and damp-mopped as well. You may even want to vacuum your upholstered furniture, too, as it tends to be a pet hair magnet.
  3. Keep your pet’s bed – and your bed – clean and fresh. If your pet uses a pet bed, it’s important to keep it as clean as possible if you don’t want excessive fur flying around your home. If you share your bed with the resident kitty or doggo, you’ll want to make sure you regularly wash your bedding, too.
  4. Make sure your HVAC filter is clean. Your HVAC filter gets dirty with use, but when you have pets, it can become clogged more quickly. That’s because pet hair easily circulates through the air in your home – and through your HVAC system. If you know how to check and change your own filter, you’ll probably want to do so more often if you share your home with furry friends. If you’re not sure, just give Stafford Mechanical a call and we’ll be happy to help!
  5. Consider installing indoor air quality products. Many people with pet allergies still choose to keep a cat or dog in their home, in spite of feeling sniffly or sneezy. Very often, people are allergic to the dander – the tiny flecks of skin shed by pets. Certain types of indoor air quality products, like air purifiers, can help to cut down on the amount of dander in your home’s air. Stafford Mechanical offers air purification systems that can help!

Call Stafford Mechanical for the products you need to keep your family comfortable.

Whether you’re looking for a cooling system that can help your entire family – furry and human – more comfortable, or indoor air quality products that can help control pet hair and dander, Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. can help you. Just give us a call at (860) 684-9485, and we’ll be happy to discuss your options with you!

Spring Into Better Home Comfort with Ductless

Illustration of a family in their home with a ductless systemOnce spring arrives, people often start to think of the warmer weather ahead. Many people have central air conditioning systems that rely on the home’s duct system installed in their homes. However, homeowners who don’t have ductwork or have added or enhanced areas of their homes may be wondering if there is any sort of AC system available that can help keep them cool and comfortable. Luckily, there is – ductless air conditioning.

Homes with baseboard or radiant heat, for instance, often do not have a system of ductwork, and that can make it impractical or impossible to install a central air conditioning system. Ductless cooling is a great solution to that problem. And because ductless can be installed using either multiple units or just a single unit, it’s also a very practical solution for those who have built an addition or converted space in the home that isn’t attached to the home’s duct system. In this article, we’ll talk about the benefits of ductless cooling, and how it can help you and your family enjoy greater home comfort.

Why choose ductless cooling for my home?

Of course, as we mentioned above, ductless is a great choice for installations where adding ductwork is not a great option, or in rooms outside your home’s duct system. But there are many other benefits to choosing ductless that you might not be aware of. Keep reading to learn more:

  • Energy Efficiency: Because they rely on heat pump technology, ductless systems are highly energy-efficient, helping you save on energy bills, whether you use ductless in a single space or all throughout your home.
  • Sleek Design: Unlike clunky window air conditioners, ductless units are installed high on your wall or on your ceiling, allowing them to provide unobtrusive comfort that doesn’t take up room in your living space.
  • Quiet Operation: Speaking of window air conditioners, in addition to blocking your view and taking up space, they are notoriously loud. Ductless is whisper-quiet, so all you’ll notice is the comfort they provide.
  • Better Air Quality: Ductless systems filter the air before it enters your living space, helping to remove particulates like dust, pollen, and mold. And that helps you breathe fresher, cleaner air!
  • Ease of Use: Ductless systems are easy to control, most via remote. You’ll be able to easily adjust the temperature so it’s just right for you!
  • Year-Round Use: While some homeowners choose to install only ductless air conditioning, there are units available that can provide both cooling and heating, making them the perfect choice for those who need a year-round comfort solution.

How can I learn more about ductless cooling and heating systems?

Finding out if ductless is the right choice for your home is as easy as calling Stafford Mechanical Services. We’ll help you choose the home comfort solution that’s best for you, your family, and your home. Simply give us a call at 860.684.9485, and we will be more than happy to help you.

When You Need Better Heating in Your Home, Ductless Can Help!

Woman sitting on couch next to a ductless unitWith so many people working and going to school from home this year, many homeowners are looking for ways to maximize all the spaces in their homes. Additions, seasonal rooms, and converted spaces are often used on a limited basis throughout the year, many times because they simply don’t have access to the home’s duct system. While people may utilize space heaters and window air conditioning as a means to keep these areas climate-controlled, there is a better, more efficient way – ductless heating and cooling.

Ductless heating and cooling systems operate outside of the home’s ductwork, making them a great choice for the above-mentioned areas. So, if you’ve been trying to maximize your home by creating a home office or classroom in these areas, but they’re just not as comfortable as you’d like, a ductless system may be a viable choice for you. Not to mention, ductless systems offer simple installation, so you’ll be able to enjoy comfort in that space quickly.

Aside from year-round comfort, how can installing a ductless system benefit my home?

While being able to enjoy all the spaces in your home, no matter what the weather is like outside, is a significant benefit, you may be wondering if there are other ways ductless can help you and your family. Below, learn more about the benefits of installing a ductless system:

  • Ductless systems are discreet. Unlike space heaters that can take up a lot of floor space, or window air conditioning systems that can be loud and obtrusive, a ductless system is mounted high on the wall or ceiling. And, most systems are whisper-quiet, so you’ll stay comfortable without the noise often associated with room heating and cooling equipment.
  • Ductless systems are energy-efficient. Many ductless systems use heat pump technology. This is one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling technologies available. Your ductless system will likely operate far more efficiently than a window unit or space heater, and provide you and your family with discreet, year-round comfort.
  • Some ductless systems may qualify for an incentive through your utility company. So not only will you be saving money on your energy bills in the long run, you could potentially save money on your new ductless system upfront!
  • Installation is usually quick and mess-free. Unlike a ducted system, your ductless heating and cooling unit can be installed with minimal construction. That’s because the indoor and outdoor components of the system are connected by a small-diameter tube. You’ll be able to enjoy comfort in a matter of hours – without a lot of construction clean-up.
  • Ductless can help your main HVAC system work more effectively and efficiently. That’s because a ductless system eliminates those hot or cold spots in your home. Your main HVAC equipment won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool the entire house – helping you save on energy bills!
  • Comfort control is as easy as pushing a button. Most ductless systems can be operated via remote control, so anyone using the room will be able to easily adjust the temperature as appropriate.

Stafford Mechanical Services can help you get the ductless system you need for your home.

Heating Maintenance is Important – Here’s Why.

technician performing heating system maintenanceChances are, you’ve been running the heating system in your home for a while this winter. If you’ve noticed that it isn’t operating as effectively as you’d like, it may be because you didn’t get annual maintenance this year. If you haven’t, it’s a good idea to call Stafford Mechanical and schedule maintenance with us. It’s never too late to get your heating system the maintenance it needs.

When a heating system isn’t properly maintained, you may notice a few telltale signs. As we said earlier, you might not be as comfortable as you’d like. Or, your heating bills may be higher. There are many good reasons for getting heating maintenance on an annual basis, whether you have a furnace, heat pump, boiler, or ductless heating system. We’ve outlined a few of the main reasons below – keep reading to learn more!

5 Reasons You Should Get Heating Maintenance

  1. Your system will be more effective. When your heating system is properly maintained, it simply works better. Your home will be more comfortable without having to keep cranking up the heat.
  2. Maintenance improves heating efficiency. Along with working more effectively, your system will also be more efficient. A part of heating maintenance includes cleaning your system, which helps it run more smoothly and not have to work as hard. That helps your system operate more efficiently, which can save you money on utility bills.
  3. Your system will be less likely to break down. Heating maintenance helps ensure that your system is running smoothly. When your technician inspects and tunes up your system, they’ll find any small problems and get them taken care of for you. And that means you’ll be less likely to have to deal with costly repairs or replacement down the road.
  4. Your indoor air quality will be better. Heating systems tend to collect dirt, dust, and other debris. When not properly maintained, those particles get circulated around your home. Annual maintenance will help ensure system components, including the filter, are clean – helping your indoor air stay fresher and healthier as well.
  5. Your system’s warranty will remain intact. Most equipment manufacturers require annual maintenance as a part of warranty maintenance. Failing to get annual maintenance could void your warranty – and cause expensive out-of-pocket repairs down the road.

When you need heating maintenance, you can count on Stafford Mechanical Services.

Fortunately, keeping your heating system maintained is simple – all you need to do is give Stafford Mechanical Services a call! Our technicians are professionals and trained to provide your heating system with the maintenance it needs.
