Have You Considered Ductless Heating and Cooling?

If you are adding on to your Boise home or are looking for a lower cost option to replacing a swamp cooling unit, or a central heating and cooling system, then a ductless heat pump unit might be right for you. Ductless heat pump units have become incredibly energy efficient. They have been used in the the far east for decades and now are becoming more popular here in the West. These systems offer flexibility as well since you are not tying them into an existing ducting system. They can be placed nearly anywhere, like sun rooms, bonus rooms, or mater bedrooms.

Nothing is worse than to go to bed at night and the sheets feel damp! Not a pleasant experience. Not what you should feel when using an air conditioner.
