Helping to install and implement a HVAC control system in a museum.
A homeowner wanted to cool an older home that lacked central air conditioning. However, the home's design, which included narrow walls and limited space for ductwork, made it challenging to install a traditional central HVAC system. We recommend installing a ductless mini-split system. This system has an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air handlers. It provides both cooling and heating without the need for extensive ductwork.
