The next time you are leaving for a vacation, ensure you have taken measures to care for your HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system while you are away. Here are some of the measures to consider.

Thanks to the way the refrigeration process works, it's possible for frost to form on the AC coils as your AC system works to keep your home cool.

You have searched and researched and assessed your options, and you have determined that a ductless mini split AC system makes the most sense for your home. These efficient systems have an excellent reputation and are definitely a good choice for a lot of homeowners. However, they are quite different where the installation is concerned, so a lot of homeowners who make the decision to go with a mini-split AC have no idea what to expect.
