The Mini-Split Debut

If you caught the HGTV’s Good Bones Season 4, Episode 4 titled “Mina’s Forever Home,” you may have seen some work by Godby. Our guys who worked on her home did not get their 15 min (or even 15 seconds) of fame, but the Mitsubishi mini-split we installed did! For a special surprise, Mina kept the final […]

Fully Insulated, Compact Duct Design

Split-ductless systems eliminate the need for long duct runs which compromise energy efficiency through leakage and impact occupant health by accumulating harmful particulates. Given how ducts in poorly designed systems can harbor bacteria, mold and dust mites, limiting ductwork can make for a healthier home. Reducing ductwork can also increase durability given how flex ductwork […]

Many have opted to use flushable wipes to combat their problems “down there.” What may seem like an answer to your bathroom […]

How to Avoid Frozen Pipes

Frigid temperatures can create major plumbing problems. Frozen or cracked pipes and leaks are no one’s friend. When temperatures drop, the pipes in your home are at risk. Pipes in unheated interior spaces, (think garage, basement and attic) are most at risk, but pipes running through cabinets and your home’s exterior walls can also freeze. […]

To the Extreme- Baring the Bitter Cold

Even if you live under a rock, the meteorologists won’t let you avoid the drama over the extreme temperatures. It’s true, we all need to be prepared for the cold and understand what can make these subzero conditions so dangerous. Let’s get to your furnace. Your furnace will be working overtime. A typical furnace in […]

Bigger Is Not Better

Previously, some builders may have selected oversized HVAC systems in the hopes of guaranteeing comfort and limiting callbacks but this approach is costly and inefficient, particularly in homes with tight thermal envelopes. Instead of providing comfort, an oversized system creates temperature swings and wastes energy by short cycling: constantly turning on and off. Short cycling […]
