With Lake Erie and Lake Ontario nearby, Western New York gets its fair share of intense weather, especially in the winter. Fortunately, Northeast Mechanical offers heating and air conditioning options to keep you comfortable no matter the season. Trane systems and Mitsubishi ductless systems provide potential ways to beat the heat and brave the cold.
The Trane TruComfort is a variable system that keeps your home at just the right temperature with little fuss. You simply enter your preferred settings and then the system works continuously to maintain that temperature.
While TruComfort works on long cycles, it expends little energy in the process. It also doesn't emit much noise. It operates at about 55 decibels, which is similar to a refrigerator. Another effect of the system's long cycles, a Trane furnace will reduce indoor humidity as air is continuously circulated.
Most central AC systems will come with fairly high upfront costs, but they can also potentially save you money down the road. For example, adding central AC can increase your home's value. You're also likely to cut down on annual energy costs. For even more benefits and further convenience, consider pairing the Trane TruComfort with Nexia Home Intelligence.
Mitsubishi Ductless System
The Mitsubishi ductless system is a useful option when you need temperature control in a home add-on space, such as a garage or sunroom. This type of system can measure a room's size as well as keep track of the number of its occupants. It then adjusts the temperature as needed to keep everyone comfortable.
The lack of ductwork not only makes the system easy to install, but it cuts down on maintenance as well. For example, dirt, debris, and other loose pieces can cause problems with the ductwork in a traditional central AC system. In some cases, you might even require professional assistance to correct the issue. However, with ductless systems, you can easily remove the filtration screens and hand wash the components yourself.
Ductless AC systems are more expensive than most window units, but you're likely to see energy savings, depending on your climate and typical usage. And if you're concerned about aesthetics, rest easy knowing that the ductless system is both sleek and compact enough to blend in with any room.
