You Don’t Have to Put up with Hot & Cold Spots

If Merts Heating and Air Conditioning could make wishes come true, do you know what we would wish for (well right after world peace and a really cool new car)? We would wish for an end to the complaints we hear about hot and cold spots in homes.

Seriously, this is one of the most common problems we encounter with our clients. The causes for uneven heating and cooling are many. Some can be fixed easily and some can’t. Certainly a prime culprit can be your HVAC ductwork. Proper airflow is critical to even distribution of the conditioned air. Leaks, kinks, or poorly designed ductwork can hinder the process. Rodents and other critters can often cause damage, especially this time of year when they are trying to escape the cool weather outside. Merts can usually fix any ductwork issues we find.

In many cases, the best and most economical solution is the addition of supplemental heating and cooling with one or more ductless mini-split heat pumps. You might have heard them referred to as mini-split air conditioners, but they work just like a traditional air source heat pump so they can provide supplemental heating as well. Merts is proud to feature Mitsubishi mini splits.


There are a lot of things to like about mini-split heat pumps. As the name implies, they require no additional HVAC ductwork so the installation is easy and affordable. They use the latest in efficient heat pump technology, meaning they use less electricity and because there is no ductwork there is no loss of conditioned air.


The indoor air handler can be installed in the room or area of the home where the problem exists, and the cooled or heated air is delivered directly to the location where it’s needed. Multiple air handlers (4 is usually the maximum) can be connected to a single outside compressor. Each air handler has its own thermostat for the ultimate in custom temperature control.

If you can make wishes come true, just save that for something more important. But if your home does have hot and cold spots, all you really need to do is call Merts Heating and Air Conditioning to learn more about ductless mini-split systems.
