While ductless installation is great, the mechanical side in me believes there are some lurkers out there that get bored with basic pics of nice and tidy new install pics. This Mitsubishi unit gets parked into its mini recess in the wall. Note the good clearance to the right and left. Too little room and future service is a bummer. Our cool flare tool gives us the thumbs up: if you zoom in you can see the teensy ridge inside that tool's gauges. If the flare passes through or doesn't enter it al all, we start all over. Gear heads, 12.5 lbs of torque is what that little 1/4" line requires. Yes I use two hands and two wrenches; but I needed to take a pic first. Actually we use the Newton Meter scale, 17 Nm. It's rare that we need to exit the wall unit to the right or left, and it's a bit more work. This wall unit is on the gable end of a cape style second floor. Exiting the rear would have been quite ugly outdoors, piping over the gutter or roofline, yuck.

Online Reviews--are losing their luster; quickly. Home services matchmaker giant Homeadvisor is buying Angies List for a bit over $500 million. For those of you that aren't very familiar how the game works, here's a quick rundown: The home services providers were at one time well-intentioned, yet profits had to take control of the ship. Small business owners that were/are eager to grow their operation saw some hope/ potential business growth, and signed on to the various on-line providers. The trouble is the contractors are paying for 'leads' that were/are lame, to put it nicely (Homeadvisor model). Angies' model is less devious, they just expect the contractor to pay an advertising fee to be listed at the top of their search criteria. Bottom line is- the Homeadvisor model sends you (the homeowner) a link to a contractor that simply wants to play the game, and you, the homeowners, are led to believe you're getting good/quality/professional services. Maybe you are. Just like the Yellow Pages once managed to extract some serious profit margins out of business across the land, the online review sites are making a run at it. I could go on for a bit; this is the bullet run-down of where things are going. Bottom line, ask you friends and neighbors who to hire; look for good Google reviews, look for longevity in the marketplace.

Here's an install that took some careful planning (measure twice and drill once). The pictures don't illustrate the second floor nuances and complexity. Outdoors, the 4 units needed proper spacing from utility meters and the heating system exhaust. The bigger 15k unit was tucked around the front (the tree is not impeding heat transfer). Several thousand dollars in rebates for this install. Carine does all the rebate paperwork, she's got the rebate process down pat. Zoom in on the bigger unit, note the way we anchor the units into the ground. You won't see that everyday 😀. Those are solid cement blocks (8x8x16) standing on end, buried and tamped about 12" (each) into the ground Lastly, the rain water barrel is getting an added dose of water when the sun is shining, adding a small bit of detail as we tucked in right behind the gutter.

Say what? Yes this is what we do when we are getting a new central AC system set up in the spring or fall, or any day when it's just plain mild outside. 60 degrees is minimum, yet I like to wait for 65 or 70 whenever possible. Warmer the beter yet we need to get these systems running properly when it's not hot outside. Ac systems need a certain amount of "load" to run correctly. If they aren't running with a basic load (indoor temperature at least 65 degrees dry bulb and 55 degrees wet bulb) we just need to "add heat". This pic shows 10,000 BTU helping the new 30,000 BTU ac system stretch its legs. Some houses are simple; many older homes have a completely different heating sysyem. In that case my little heaters stay on the shelf and we simply run the heating as we are testing the AC. Don't worry, 30 minutes or so won't drum up any high heating bills😃

Here is a modern wall-hung boiler (Buderus GB142, upper pic) that developed a small leak. After much contemplation and weighing present vs future costs, the homeowners decided to get a new boiler installed. Because we installed the Buderus in 2009, I dropped our costs and agreed to process the rebate paperwork (wait for the rebate money instead of the homeowner waiting for the rebate money). A bit of effort was put forth to make the new system look like it was the original installation. Most HVAC/Plumbers would have a few more couplings and ugly offsets to fit in a new system. The new Bosch ZBR (lower pic) was neatly tucked into its spot, picture worthy. #gettingmodernheat
