Yes, ductless HVAC systems are efficient … but how efficient are they?
This is a question we get all the time and it’s hard to answer it with numbers. Every model of ductless mini split is going to differ, and every home is going to have a different level of energy efficiency. For instance, a home with the door left wide open all year is going to be much less efficient than one that’s tightly insulated. We can’t really control that, and it might lead to a homeowner getting frustrated after being promised that their ductless system was efficient.
What we can do is point to the ways that a ductless system improves efficiency in Logan, South Harrison, and East Greenwich. And, if they’re maximized properly (with insulation, mild thermostat settings, and more) then you can reduce your energy bill by a substantial amount.
Let’s get into it, and be sure to contact our team for ductless AC service in Gloucester County, NJ.

Air ducts are a necessary part of heating and cooling. For many homes in our area, they’re responsible for transporting heat from the furnace to the rest of the house. The reason why we say “many homes” and not “all homes” is because ductless mini split systems don’t need to use air ducts. They provide heat from an air handler that’s mounted on the wall or ceiling. But these systems are not as common as furnaces, so it’s more likely that you’ll see air ducts in a home.
Here’s a question: how do you know if your basement is too cold for your air ducts or furnace? Sometimes, things can get so cold that a furnace basically freezes up and requires furnace repair in Cumberland County. Even in Greenwich, Hainesport, and Evesham, we all know how cold some days can get, so how do you make sure that your furnace stays warm in the coldest section of your house? Keep reading to find out!

Furnaces are “forced-air” heating systems, which means they heat the air in your home and force it through air ducts to reach the living spaces. This is different from a radiant heating system, which radiates heat from radiators, baseboard heaters, or lines running under floorboards. Forced-air heating systems are often more affordable and more common because of just how easy it is to heat the air in a home.
However, it’s important to remember if you’re a furnace owner in Greenwich, Hainesport, or Evesham, that forced-air heating relies on complex systems of air ducts in order to work properly. These involve ducts to transport air through the home, as well as a port exhaust duct system to transport fumes and other harmful contaminants out of your house so that you’re kept safe and secure.
So, let’s discuss how ducts might relate to furnace repair in Cumberland County, and three unique facts about your duct system.

Allergies can get pretty bad in Longport, Margate City, and Somers Point. But allergies can also spring up incredibly fast, right after the last snow has melted, we might get inundated with large amounts of pollen. Nature is resilient, and those plants and trees are just waiting for the opportunity to send some pollen into the air.
For many, allergies can be downright debilitating. They can clog up our sinuses, be painful to our throats and noses, and they can even cause disruptions in our sleep schedules. The effects of these problems can be anywhere from a nuisance to life-altering in some cases, which is why we’re big proponents of systems that protect indoor air quality in Atlantic County.
Let’s talk about a few ways to protect your home from allergies this spring season, before it’s here in full swing.

Have you ever heard the expression “every home is different?” It’s true, every single home is going to be designed and put together differently depending on the people who live in it. Your cousin’s home probably looks at least a little different from your best friend’s home, and that’s one of the fun parts about being a homeowner. Your home gets to be the way you want it, and nobody can tell you otherwise.
When it comes to comfort, this is going to remain true. Every home is going to have its own comfort preferences. Homeowners throughout Mount Holly, Lumberton, and Evesham are going to live differently and with different comfort preferences. But what if we told you that there is such a thing as having extreme comfort preferences that could damage your home, your health, and your energy efficiency? We’d argue that humidity levels need to be normalized when it comes to indoor air quality in Burlington County. And here’s why.

You’ve heard us talk about smart and Wi-Fi thermostats a lot on this blog, mainly as an upgrade option. But you probably haven’t heard us mention some of the more abstract benefits from this kind of technology. It’s true that Wi-Fi thermostats are more convenient to operate, but sometimes convenience also comes hand-in-hand with better operation, efficiency, and more benefits that you can take advantage of. This blog post is going to focus on these three benefits for customers.
- Convenient operation and faster updates.
- Control from anywhere and everywhere.
- A detailed look at your HVAC technology.
With an upgrade like this, we’re certain that you’ll be better off in the long run. Just make sure you contact a professional for a smart thermostat in Salem County, especially if you’ve got an old, analog thermostat that’s been in need of an upgrade for decades.

When it comes to heating a home, there are various different methods that we use today. We’re not going to go into things like space heaters or wood fireplaces because, well let’s face it, they’re not that efficient and they don’t do a good enough job heating an entire home. Customers come to us for whole-house solutions that can keep a whole house warm and cozy all winter long in Cherry Hill, Tavistock, and Voorhees.
There are two main categories for heating. There’s forced-air heaters that use gas or electricity to heat the air of your home and push it through air ducts, and then there’s radiant heating, which uses water or electricity to radiate heat through floorboards, walls, and radiators. Each has its own set of perks and benefits, but be sure to call us for your forced-air or radiant heating services in Camden County.

The term radiance just sounds nice, doesn’t it? There are things that radiate joy, light, hope, and the term just tends to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This isn’t a coincidence, the term “radiance” is also an old term in the HVAC industry for a specific type of heat that does almost the same thing!
Radiant heaters are a type of heating system that encompasses common units like boilers and electrical radiant heating systems. These types of heaters are very different from forced-air heaters like furnaces and heat pumps, specifically because they radiate through objects and people, causing ambient heat to warm you up instead of the air around you.
If you thought these heating systems were out of style, guess again! There are some excellent reasons to invest in radiant heating in Gloucester County, and we’re going to go over them today. Just be sure to call our team for support in Wenonah, Glassboro, and Swedesboro as well!

Indoor air quality is a serious concern for homeowners these days. It’s not really that the pollution is coming from outside of the home, but rather from inside where our houses are so tightly sealed that contaminants have trouble leaving. Some contaminants are more common than others, and we’ve decided to write a bit of a PSA about the different, most common IAQ pollutants and where they come from.
Of course, the simple solution to all of this would be to call the pros at Ambient Comfort. We have tried and tested solutions for indoor air quality in Cumberland County, and we love testing and addressing problems in our customers’ homes. For an air filter or an air purifier in Deerfield, Greenwich, or Upper Deerfield, don’t hesitate to contact our team.
For everyone else, keep reading as we get into the contaminants and what you should be on the lookout for.
