If you or members of your family have allergies, or are sensitive to air quality, you probably avoid going outside as much as possible. One thing that most people overlook is that sometimes it’s not the air outside that’s irritating you. Often it’s the air inside your home that’s the source of irritation! Tobacco, fireplace soot, cooking fumes, pet dander and carpet can all be suspect when it comes to allergies.

Ductless systems, also known as ductless heat pumps, or ductless mini-splits, include a compact & quiet outdoor unit, and even a quieter indoor wall or ceiling units. These systems transfer heat outdoors when cooling, or indoors when heating. They give just as much heating or cooling as needed – avoiding the temperature swings in many traditional systems. Ductless systems in Meridian are extremely energy efficient, using as little as one third the energy of traditional heating or cooling methods. And you can heat or cool only the rooms you’re actually using, saving energy and money!
