Zoned Home/Whole Home
Mini-splits make it easy to add heating and air conditioning to bonus rooms, attics, garages, basements, home offices and any new or previously unconditioned space. Did you know the same technology can be used to heat and cool your entire home as a heat-pump air conditioner? Modern mini- and multi-split heat pumps are increasingly popular as a means to shrink residential carbon footprints and reduce utility costs.
Bedroom That’s Too Hot or Cold

Sleep is a critical component of our overall wellbeing. Setting the right type of environment for sleep can make the difference between meaningful rest or a night counting sheep. Having a dark and cool room is optimal, but it’s not economical or comfortable to set your whole home back to 65 degrees every night. There is a better way! Zoned, split-ductless heat pump systems can offer the energy-efficient comfort you need for a good night’s rest!
Oil, propane, or gas-heated home
Homeowners with legacy oil, propane and gas heaters are discovering how our mini- and multi-split systems can help solve long-standing comfort and sustainability challenges. In regions like the Northeast, homeowners who’ve experienced heating oil price fluctuations may be particularly motivated to consider our all-electric systems.
High-Performance Home/Net-Zero

Considering a high-performance home but unsure what is involved? Compared to the average build, a high-performance home emphasizes comfort, wellness, efficiency, sustainability and durability in the design and construction of the structure and systems. High-performance homes require a holistic approach to their design and function in order to achieve the high standards of efficiency, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and overall sustainability. The structure is designed to require minimal energy and the home’s systems are engineered to optimize the overall performance.  
Zoned Home
Dividing a home into zones is a popular way to customize comfort and potentially increase your home’s value. You can make a single room a zone or you can establish a larger zone consisting of multiple rooms or an entire floor. Whatever you choose, zoning enables you to establish preferred temperature set points for each area to match how you use the space. For example, your media room, home office, playroom, bedrooms and kitchen could have individual set points without affecting comfort throughout the home.   
Tiny Home
In the last decade, tiny homes have gone from being a fun novelty to a viable living option. Particularly for millennials ready to purchase their first home, these tiny dwellings have become more attractive as a smaller footprint and minimal furnishings foster sustainability and cost-efficiency.  
Sunroom
If there’s a place with perfect weather year-round, most of us aren’t lucky enough to live there. Depending on your latitude, you may spend a chunk of your year bundled up against freezing winters or desperately trying to keep cool in summer heat. But the thought of staying cooped up inside all day without feeling the sun on your skin isn’t much more appealing.  
She Shed
Ladies, we know how hard you work. Whether you’re a mother, career woman, student, caretaker, business owner, or any combination of the above, you deserve your own space to relax. Enter, the she shed.   
Man Cave
The man cave exudes relaxation and fun times — a place to unwind after a long day at work, school or parenting. For some guys, the man cave revolves around the TV for binge-watching movies, putting on the big game or kicking back to watch a favorite prime-time sitcom. For others, a workout bench, guitar or bookshelf takes center stage. Wherever your interest lies, the man cave is your place to indulge without interruption.  
Home Without Ductwork
So, your home has old-world charm thanks to its colonial, craftsman or Victorian architecture. Or maybe it’s a 1970s-style ranch or New England Cape Cod. The common technology missing in these home styles’ design is HVAC ductwork.
