Ductless AC System
If you take a look in your basement, you’ll likely see ducts running to and fro, but what if we told you that a ductless AC system was an option? If you’re looking to add an AC unit or update an old one, a ductless AC system may best suit your home!
Ductless AC units (sometimes called mini-split systems) are a great innovation, allowing for an energy-efficient cooling of the home. The unit is composed of two parts (hence the ‘split’ name): an outdoor air compressor and an indoor, wall-mounted piece. Often these are used in situations where baseboard heating or window AC units would be installed. They’re less visible and noisy, and because they only need a small hole in the wall, they’re more airtight and therefore efficient versus leaky ducts.
However, every unit comes with at least a few drawbacks. Ductless AC systems are not considered to be visually aesthetic or efficient in extremely cold climates (for ductless heat in freezing climates, a fuel-based back up is recommended). Regardless of these points, a ductless AC system is perfect for room additions to a home, a space conversation (like a renovated garage), or can even be used as a booster to an existing system.

My existing 15-yr old A/C went down on me during the first major heatwave of the season. Researched my options, as well as a few different installers, and decided on Twintech.
They gave me confidence right from the beginning. Extremely knowledgeable. Their communication was excellent - always responded to questions quickly. Given we were in a heatwave, they were fully booked. However, within days they were able to fit me in due to a cancellation. Upon learning that the Amana unit I was getting installed was on backorder, TwinTech went to bat for me with the manufacturer and was able to get me the next model up within a day, for the same price - Amazing!
As far as the installation was concerned, I couldn’t be more impressed. These guys were clearly very experienced and did a fantastic job. Very clean, polite, timely & informative. They even thoroughly sealed all the exposed gaps in my ductwork. I’ve had plenty of heating and cooling work done in the past and have never used the same contractor twice because I’ve never been very impressed. However, from now on, I’ll always be contacting Twintech first!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Excellent workmanship, and quick response. Would recommend Twintech to anyone.
