The Mini-Split Alternative
For those of you looking into adding cooling to your older home you may have come to the conclusion that a rapidly rising new solution on the scene is the mini-split system. A favorite among centuries old European homes because there is a void when it comes to retrofitting an old home or building for modern cooling, this alternative is rapidly gaining favor in The United States.
The Fujitsu Halcyon mini-split system is capable of providing individual room temperatures. If opting for a heat pump unit, you could have this unit provide both heating and cooling. Systems allow for a peaceful inside environment because components like compressors and motors are installed outdoors.
Mini splits use a process called inverter technology. This technology is like cruise control for your heating or cooling system. Compressors run only as fast as they need in order to handle the heating or cooling demand. They can handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation, and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional air conditioners.
Another huge benefit to the mini-split is their efficiency. And efficiency translates directly into money savings. Some utility companies offer rebates on these types of systems because of their efficiency. Contact your utility company, or go to www.ujitsugeneral.com/utility-rebates.htm
Mini-splits are Energy Star rated.
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Choosing the right cooling approach can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.
The Fujitsu Mini-Splits is a Green Choice:

I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience. From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly. Excellent quality work to boot!

I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install. Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily. Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project. A++ and highly recommended!

The unit is working very well. The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully. I would never have even known they were there. Thank you again.
