Where The Ductwork Won't Go, Your Ductless Mini-Split DeliversWhen you're planning a renovation or adding more livable space, heating and cooling it can become an issue, especially if it would be difficult or expensive to extend ducts from your current HVAC system. However, ductless mini-splits are excellent ways to condition a space without ducts, since these heat pumps vent air directly into a space. Like a regular air-source heat pump, a mini-split has two main parts: an outdoor compressor/condenser and one or more interior air handlers. A conduit connects these parts.

Anything that has electronic components needs surge protection. This includes not only obvious items like TVs and computers, but also any other appliances with electronic components, such as your washer and dryer, refrigerator and other items. Less obvious equipment that needs surge protection is your HVAC equipment. In fact, your HVAC system is probably the most expensive thing you own that needs a surge protector.

Any time you launch into a new cooling or heating season, you should make sure you have a clean air filter ready to go, since this will help ensure both improved indoor air quality and smooth HVAC system operation throughout the upcoming high-use season.

Now that the cooling season is nearly upon us in Indiana, humidity will increasingly become an issue for homeowners. Though air conditioners and heat pumps can control humidity levels to some extent, many homes need an added level of protection from muggy indoor air, a whole-house dehumidifier. They're also handy during humid weather when the outside temperatures are cooler, and running your air conditioning isn't a viable option.

Programmable Thermostats: Make The Smart DecisionThermostats have always been a smart choice. They're money and energy savers – even the old manual units, if used correctly to set back temps when your family leaves the house or goes to sleep. Digital programmable units are more sophisticated, allowing Ft. Wayne-area homeowners to program a schedule and temperature for different parts of day and days of the week. Adjustments are then automatic.

"Love these people! We bought a brand new furnace and ac a year ago. For some crazy reason something happened to the ac Sunday when it was 91 degrees . I had a service guy here Sunday and Monday... Vicky was fabulous through it all and the guys were wonderful. They ended up working after hours and got it all fixed... Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my puppies. We're cool again!!"

"Hartman Brothers installed the HVAC system before we bought this home, and has always maintained it. When it was time to replace it after 32 years, we selected them to install & maintain this system as well."

"We reached out to Hartman Brothers as our previous place was actually rude and acted like didnt care as we had an issue with the AC. Our systems at that point were about 14 years old. We got a quote from previous place and i about fell off my chair. Called Hartman Brothers and asked if they could provide a quote for us on both and in AC alone. Super impressed as Rick came out next morning. Looked at what we currently had and that same day had a complete quote to us. We were scheduled for May 26 install however they had a cancellation and came out May 17. Both techs were super amazing. Talked with us with everything and answered all of our questions. They came out a little before 8am and everything was installed and working by 2pm. Cleaned up their stuff ( which was great as we have 3 dogs). Never have we experienced this type of professionalism from any company. We are all so pleased with Hartman Brothers including Vicki in the office. She was great helping me and explaining the maintenance agreement. If you ever need a great team you wont be disappointed with Hartman Brothers ! We thank you all for helping us and doing a great job. It was also great we kept it local as well. Glad to be a part of the Hartman Brothers family now ! Thank you again."
