Berkeley Electric and Air Concept Solutions Team Up to Help a Homeowner

Berkeley Electric and Air Concept Solutions Team UpWhile performing a routine energy audit, we head off a potentially dangerous issue. We joined Energy Specialist Josh Laughter with Berkeley Electric to investigate a high electric bill.   The owner of the home was paying around $500 a month during the cold season and Josh deduced there was a possible problem with their HVAC system. We visited the member’s home together to take a closer look and found that the thermostat had been wired incorrectly.

We found melted wires in the air handler and when the HVAC unit was cut on a small fire occurred. Thankfully, we were on-site to see the fire and were able  to extinguish it quickly.  We disconnected the heat strips to prevent further problems. Not only did we fix the thermostat and heat strips but now the member’s bill has dropped from $500 a month to around $100-$150.

What is a Mini Split? Ductless Mini Splits Overview

 A ductless mini split may the answer to make your system more cost effective

Mini Split is another name for a ductless heating and cooling system that can both be designed for the use of straight air cooling or as a heatpump system that can perform heating and cooling. They are especially desirable for remote rooms and rooms with special HVAC needs in which additional ductwork may not be sufficient or accessible. One example is a finish room over a garage in which some call a (FROG). Ductless Mini Splits are also used when a garage or a porch area become enclosed into a finished living area. Communication or computer rooms can also benefit when it is important and required to maintain lower room temperatures.

Ductless Mini Splits have several advantages and can be used in many applications when cost matters. In the examples giving above, the overall cost for installation is nearly lower in every case. With its wireless thermostat capabilities it gives excellent temperature control. Over the years efficiency of theses units have risen dramatically with the new inverted technology. Mini Split equipment uses minimal amp draw and wattage often exceeding that of a fully ducted system.
