Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

Monday, November 24th, 2014

When you live in California, you really need to be able to count on your air conditioning system. Not only must you air conditioner be capable of cooling your home effectively, but you must also be able to beat the heat in an efficient manner. This is why it is so important that you find the right air conditioner for your home, usage habits, and personal preferences. When you work with the AC experts at JC Mechanical Inc., you will have no doubt about it. We have the information and services you need to get the most from your air conditioning system. Give us a call today to discuss your options. One well-worth your consideration is ductless air conditioning in La Habra, CA.

To understand the ways in which a ductless air conditioning system can benefit you, you must first understand the way in which such systems function. Ductless ACs feature an outdoor compressor/condenser unit, much the same as other split systems. However, this component is connected to individual, wall-mounted blowers which distribute conditioned air directly into the rooms in which they are installed. No ductwork is used in the cooling process. The elimination of air ducts has a few different perks.

First of all, zoned cooling is simple to achieve when you are using multiple blowers. This allows you to cool different areas of your home to different temperatures. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about the buildup of pollutants within ductwork, and the eventual dispersal of such pollutants throughout the home. Without ductwork, you also won’t have to worry about leaks in the ductwork. This can help you to cool your home more efficiently as well. All of this can add up to considerable savings throughout our long, hot cooling season.

Ductless mini splits are also able to make use of heat pump technology in order to both heat and cool your home with one convenient system. Considering how mild our winter weather is around here, keeping your home warm in such a fashion is a very viable option.

Using the Right Air Filtration System

Monday, November 17th, 2014

When many homeowners think of comfort, they think first and foremost of the temperature in their homes. However, there is far more than temperature alone to consider. In fact, the quality of the air in your home has just as much of an impact on your comfort as the temperature does. That is precisely why low indoor air quality is such a serious concern. If you have any reason at all to suspect that your indoor air quality is not all that it should be, give a member of our team a call today. We have the products and services that you need to boost the quality of the air in your home. For professional air filtration systems in La Habra, CA, call upon the pros at JC Mechanical Inc.

One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that not all problems with indoor air quality are going to benefit from the same solutions. There are a number of different issues that you may encounter, and it is important that you use the right tools for your specific situation. One of the simplest, and in many cases most effective, ways in which to boost indoor air quality is with a basic mechanical air filter. These devices are installed directly into your HVAC system, and trap pollutants on a filtering media as air passes through. Your system has a factory installed filter, yes, but its primary function is to protect the system itself from pollutants, not to boost indoor air quality. Our technicians will help you to choose the right filter for your needs, and we will ensure that it is of the right efficiency for your system, as measured by its MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value).

If further action is needed, you may want to consider the installation of an electronic air cleaner in your home. Such systems do not wait for pollutants to pass through in the air. Instead, electricity is used in order to give pollutants an electric charge. These pollutants are then trapped on collector plates or, depending on the system, simply allowed to collect on surfaces in your home. Once they do, they are easily cleaned away.
