Monday, May 21st, 2018

ductless-blower-unitIf you own a home and you don’t have a system of ductwork in place, then chances are that you are making due with window unit air conditioners. This is far from ideal. These units are noisy, they leave your home vulnerable to intruders, and they can cost a surprising amount of money to run.
