Ambiance Eco Green, A Smarter, More Efficient Air Conditioning System For Homes
I've worked in the hvac industry since 1995, I've worked on all manner of air conditioning and heating systems commonly found in the great state of Texas, and trust me, in Texas-air conditioning techs have a lot to do, and a short time in which to get it done. In my time I've seen and had my hands and tools on every conceivable brand and style of both commercial and residential equipment. .I've written numerous articles here on hubpages about hvac equipment, including tips for tune ups and preventive maintenance ideas for homeowners, and even tips on how to prevent disasters during home improvements and repairs. I've also written about, and completely described the hows and whys concerning the sorry state of equipment being sold to homeowners in the residential market in these times of environmental crises, and energy conservation.
Then there's the Ambiance Eco Green mini-splits. These systems are altogether above the norm in many, many ways. These systems top anything else on the market today with conventional air conditioning and heating systems. Their reliability is superb, and the electrical efficiency that they offer far and away exceeds the typical central heating and air conditioning systems sold today, and when you employee the benefits of Ambiance Eco Green systems throughout your home in the manner that they were designed to be used, then you've really done yourself, and your family a favor.
Ambiance Eco Green Mini Split Systems
What is a Mini Split? It's SMART Heating and Cooling
So you've never heard of Ambiance Eco Green, and don't know what a mini split is. That's great! That is exactly why I'm writing this, and exactly why you should be reading this if you plan on building a new home, or need to remodel an existing home, and need a new air conditioning or heating system for that home, then this is for you.
Think of a traditional home central heating and air system, it's either got ductwork all over the attic, or all underneath the house. If the duct is in the attic, then you can't store nearly enough of your stuff up there. If the ductwork is underneath the house, then raccoons, rats, squirrels, and other critters can tear into it, or damage it. Let's not even think about snakes, okay?
When you sleep at night, or leave for work-and your central a/c and heating system is running-it is either heating or cooling the entire home. Is this not wasteful? It's very wasteful! If you are sleeping, then you don't need your kitchen, your dining room, and you spare bedroom heated or cooled, do you? NO, YOU DON'T!
Simply put, a mini split is a mini split system, or, a miniature central heating and air conditioning system-without ductwork. With mini-splits, you only run the heat or a/c in the rooms that you are using, and you've got a different system for each room.
Basic Heat Pump Overview
Nothing Like A Window Unit.
These systems are nothing like window units. Central heating and air conditioning systems sold on the market today have a MINIMUM seer rating of 13 S.E.E.R. "S.E.E.R." stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating. Window units typically come rated at 7 to 9 S.E.E.R., and are FAR less efficient than a central heating and air system.
The photo at the top of the text, and to the right is a picture of both the indoor, and outdoor sections of an Ambiance Eco Green mini split. The indoor portion does NOT go in a window, it goes where you want it to go, you only need to tell the installer or builder where in the room that you want the indoor section to go. Do you see any ductwork? NO YOU DON'T! The reason for this is that THERE IS NO DUCTWORK. If you've got Ambiance Eco Green mini splits for each major room in your home-you'll not have ductwork, or any need for ductwork-you can turn your attic in an existing home into another room, or use the entire attic space for storage.
In my article "The Advantages Of Owning a Heat Pump," I explained the many benefits of owning heat pumps-but in that article I was talking about heat pumps as central systems. The Ambiance Eco Green mini splits are also heat pumps, so besides the regular energy savings and safety benefits that you get with a home's hvac system being a heat pump-with the Ambiance Eco Green mini splits, you can multiply those savings benefits times however many rooms you have mini splits in. It totals out to a HUGE cost savings over time.
High Tech Air Conditioning and Heating
The full name for the Ambiance Eco Green mini split systems is Ambiance Eco Green Inverters. What does that mean? Well, besides being very high efficiency systems and heat pumps-these systems also invert electricity from standard a/c current to d/c current, and pulse that current based on various data to the fan motors via variable frequency drives. That means, for you tech buffs out there, that the indoor fan motor, and the outdoor fan motor are not typical fan motors. Typically a fan motor will operate a either 1075 revolutions per minute, or 850 revolutions per minute. Indoor Fan motors sometimes operate at two, or even three different speeds-condenser fan motors are almost always set at a specific speed. But not with these units, these very high tech units have fan motors that can and will operate anywhere from one revolution per minute all the way up to one thousand and seventy five revolutions per minute. These systems know what speed their fan motors should operate at for maximum energy efficiency. As if that weren't enough, they also have a two speed compressor!
In conclusion I'd like to state that if one is willing to go outside the normal way of heating and cooling a home, then one can and will save huge sums of money with the Ambiance Eco Green Inverter mini split heat pumps. There's more advantages to having a home utilizing this technology than I even covered. They are low maintenance, in fact, their reliability far exceeds anything on the market today by any of the major American air conditioning equipment manufacturers such as Carrier, Lennox, or Trane. I hope that you've either enjoyed reading this, or learned something that you didn't previously know. As always, thank you for reading, and never hesitate to contact me with any questions.
