Carrier Ductless Mini-Splits Cool this Allentown Colonial

Carrier ductless air conditioning in Allentown, PAThis great colonial style home in Allentown had a problem- there was no air conditioning system, and our summers seem to keep getting more hot and humid each year. The homeowners had been relying on window units to provide some relief, but they just weren’t able to keep up and they were super-expensive to run, driving up energy bills.

The homeowner was talking to a friend who had used Werley’s to install a Carrier ductless system for them, and began talking about how amazing it was, providing the cooling they needed and they no longer had to dedicate a weekend twice a year to mess around with those awful window units!

The homeowners gave us a call here at Werley’s to see what we would recommend and if we could use ductless to help keep the whole family comfortable- provided it would be a cost-effective solution.

Problem: Homeowners had no air conditioning in the home, and they wanted to get an energy-efficient, cost effective solution to get the comfort they craved.

Solution: A five zone Carrier ductless air conditioning system will provide the homeowners with perfect comfort at the touch of a button, and they will be able to customize the comfort in each area as needed.

When we went out to see the homeowners, we knew they were interested in ductless. For a home like this one, the question usually becomes one of how we can give them the comfort they need right where they need it most.  Carrier’s ductless heat pump systems are terrific, and they are expandable. One outdoor heat pump can support many indoor units – and each indoor unit is controlled independently!  This means even though there is a common outdoor heat pump, you can keep the living room one temperature, while you have the bedroom at another temperature, and have the family room another temperature as well- all customized to their use, and that means you can also save significant money by not cooling spaces that you’re not using!

Many homes like this colonial in Allentown were built without ductwork, so installing a “Central” air conditioning system either requires significant construction and trying to retrofit ductwork into a home, or finding another option all together. That’s why the ductless heating and cooling systems were developed- so that areas of a home or business without ductwork could get the comfort of central heat and air. And, as an advantage over central heat and air, ductless makes it easy to create separate zones of heating and cooling, and allow you to control not only your comfort, but your energy bills by only having to heat or cool the areas of your home while they are in use. This can add up to significant savings, something every homeowner can appreciate!

The family wanted to ensure their whole home was comfortable, so we suggested creating a total of five zones, covering the common spaces of the home and the bedrooms. Because these systems are so quiet, Carrier ductless can provide you the perfect comfort you want, and you’ll never have to turn up the TV or lose a moment of sleep due to a noisy, clanking air conditioner ever again.

Because these units are so energy efficient, they qualify for energy saving rebates from PECO and the Commonwealth. Our homeowners qualified for $1,150 in rebates for upgrading their home comfort with Carrier ductless, making adding additional comfort to their home even more affordable.

Now our Allentown homeowners in Parkland will have the comfort they want, all year long, in every part of their home.  The will also save money in energy bills by adding this energy-efficient system, lowering energy bills while also helping out the environment at the same time! That’s a recipe we can all folllow.

If you’re interested in learning more about how Carrier ductless might be able to help you become more comfortable while lowering your energy bills, give us a call here at Werley’s, and we’ll help you design a system to provide you with quiet comfort year round.

Carrier Ductless Cools a Parkway Manor Cape Cod – Allentown, PA

Heating and air conditioning cape cod Allentown, PAThis lovely cape-style home in Parkway Manor, like many of the homes in the area, didn’t have central air conditioning.

The homeowners were tired of trying to get by in the summer with window air conditioners. Window units are a pain to put in and take out, tying up two weekends of your year, and there never seems to be a perfect time to do it- put the units away too soon, and you swelter during the early fall heat waves; wait too long, and freeze when when get a cold snap. Then there’s the expense to run them and the noise, and it’s not surprising that homeowners in Allentown are looking for a better solution.

The homeowners gave us a call to see if we could solve this problem for them. Adding ductwork in a home like this is expensive and impractical, especially when other solutions, like Carrier ductless heating and air conditioning, are available. Ductless systems work by attaching a heat pump unit outside to indoor wall units that can act as both heating and air conditioning systems, although you can also get units that are just for air conditioning. The wall units all operate independently from one another, each one creating a separate zone of heating and cooling, and allow you to better regulate and customize your comfort, all through the convenience of a remote control!

5 Zone Carrier Ductless Mini-Split Installation

When we spoke with the homeowners, we suggested that they could benefit from three zones of comfort- one to help keep the downstairs comfortable, and two upstairs to maximize comfort in the bedrooms. Carrier ductless is known for being whisper-quiet, so it’s a perfect solution for downstairs in the family room, and the bedrooms. No more loud, clanking air conditioners rumbling in the background- and no more hot and cold spots in a room either! The carrier ductless wall-mounted units do a great job of distributing air throughout the space, making sure there aren’t pockets of hot and cold air, but instead, a steady, comfortable temperature throughout!

The ductless units monitor the temperature and humidity throughout a space and use a variable speed function to make sure that the temperature in the room remains constant, unlike traditional systems that tend to turn on and off with wider swings in temperature. This system also reduces energy consumption, and helps make these systems incredibly energy efficient.  As a result, PECO and other rebates are available, because these units can really help save energy and the environment! Our homeowners qualified for a $500 rebate, helping make the installation of three zones of comfort in their home even more affordable.

Best of all, the energy-efficiency of carrier ductless means that the family will save money. Each of the zones, operating independently, can be turned on or off as needed, meaning you don’t have to worry about cooling the living room while you’re asleep upstairs- and vice versa- meaning you are only spending energy  for heating and cooling right where you need it. Between this and the efficient heat-pump inverter technology, homeowners can see a significant savings in their monthly energy bills from when they were using window units. And if they use the units for heating as well, we’ve had homeowners report that they can save almost 40% on their energy bills compared to other modes of heating- something any homeowner can surely appreciate!

Best of all, the Carrier ductless units work well even when it’s -22F or 125F outside- temperature extremes we don’t even see here in Allentown! Compared to heat pumps in the past, these new units can handle extreme temperatures and provide cost-effective heating and cooling at the same time, delivering year-round comfort for the whole family.

If you need air conditioning or supplemental heating for those hot and cold spots in your home, give us a call here at Werley’s. We’re happy to talk to you about the options available, and how ductless might provide the perfect quiet comfort solution you’ve been looking for!

Adding Ductless to Perfectly Cool an Allentown Cape Cod Style Home

Heating and air conditioning cape cod Allentown, PAIn Allentown, there are lots of older homes like this Cape style home, that were built before central forced air heat and air conditioning were the norm. This home was being heated solely by oil, and the homeowners were looking to add air conditioning that was more robust than just window units. They came to us looking for solutions, so we visited the home to see what we could do.

Problem: The homeowner was looking to add air conditioning to the home, but the existing ductwork was too small to do the job properly.

Solution: A Carrier ductless heating and cooling system with five separate zones will not only provide the homeowners with perfect cooling comfort without having to install new ductwork, but it will provide great cost-effective supplemental heating, saving the owners a lot of money on energy bills!

On inspection, we found that the existing duct work could not handle the load required if we were to install a traditional “unitary” air conditioning system. When we started to discuss the possibility of using a ductless system to cool the home, we let them know that these systems can act as both heaters as well as air conditioning, so you can get two benefits from one system. While the owners were satisfied with their oil heat, they knew that oil prices were rising, and it always feels like a bit of a gamble when you arrange for a tank fill up for a season.

The new Carrier ductless heat pump systems use inverter technology that not only can work efficiently when it’s -22F or 125F outside, and they are super-efficient.

The technology allows the homeowners to use only as much energy as absolutely needed to keep the room a constant temperature, avoiding the highs and lows you might get with a traditional single-stage, whole home system – essentially what the homeowners had currently for heating.

Carrier ductless also constantly monitors a room for temperature and humidity and distributes the hot or cold air evenly through a room, so there are never the hot and cold spots you might get with other systems.

The homeowners opted for 5 indoor wall units, which sit up on the wall, out of the way, making sure no one ever even notices them.  These units are also really quiet- under 30 db, and as a result, you can barely hear them running, meaning they will never cause you to have to turn up the TV in the family room, or disturb a night’s sleep when they kick on. All you have to do is set the temperature with a remote control, and you’re done!

By choosing to add 5 wall units, the homeowners are creating 5 zones of heating and cooling.  This will allow them to adjust the temperature in each zone separately, creating custom comfort while saving money in energy bills.  Unlike a whole home system that is either on or off, each zone can be controlled independently, and can even been turned off when not in use. So for example, you might want some extra cooling in the living room or kitchen during the day, but leave the units in the bedroom off, and reverse this at the end of the day. It also means if the kids like their room extra warm, but Mom and Dad like it cool to sleep, each person can adjust the temperature so they are perfectly comfortable.

Because the Carrier ductless system can act both as a heating and cooling system, the homeowners will also be able to add just a touch of heat when they need it on cold days, right where they want it. Most of our customers who install ductless find that they reduce the use of their main whole home heating system dramatically, and watch their energy bills drop significantly during the first year- something every homeowner can appreciate!

Because this is a such an energy- efficient upgrade, there are rebates available for homeowners to adopt systems like these- and our homeowners qualified for $800 in rebates that helped make the installation of this significant comfort-upgrade even more affordable! And it means Mom will no longer be telling kids to go put on a sweater if they think it’s too cold in the house- the family can bump up the heat to make everyone comfortable without worrying about the utility bills breaking the budget.

If your home could use a better air conditioning system, and add efficient heating to those rooms that always seem too hot or cold, give us a call.  We may have just the right Carrier ductless solution for your home!
