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.

Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal. He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain. The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system. The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold. Bill addressed each and every question I had. Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed. The work was completed in two days by a great installer team. They were on time, professional and courteous. The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in. I’d highly recommend them.

I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation. Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical. I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization. Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust. The installation team was excellent. They were experienced. They arrived precisely on time every day. They explained every step of the process. They worked as a team. They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own. The installation is a thing of beauty. Every time I go into my basement I smile. I now have a reliable, efficient system. I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
