Mini-splits, or ductless systems, are ever gaining in popularity. Our M E Brown professionals are installing, repairing, and maintaining more of them every week in River Oaks, TX. And with good reason. Mini-splits are a great solution for your home when other HVAC systems won’t solve the issue.
These versatile ductless systems can address that uneven temperature in your back bedroom, the one you rarely use. A mini-split can also be a part of your basement remodel plans, that way you don’t have the complication of needing to tap into your existing system. The same goes for an addition to your home or your garage. A mini-split is the perfect answer for each of these scenarios. Since mini-splits are easy to install, have a small footprint, do not require any ductwork, and are very efficient, they have a multitude of uses.

Heat pumps are another great option for heating and cooling your home. They’re both environmentally friendly and energy efficient, so they’ll work well in many homes. Here in River Oaks, TX, we see many homes with heat pumps rather than more traditional heating systems. If this is an option you’d like to explore, our M E Brown technicians would be happy to come out to your home and discuss whether it would work well for you. Or if you already have one, our professionals are experienced in both heat pump repair and maintenance and are always ready to discuss how they can help.
One topic they are fervent about is heat pump maintenance. Since heat pumps operate very differently than more traditional systems, not everyone is familiar with their workings and required maintenance. Heat pumps work similarly to your air conditioner––they simply move the appropriate-temperatured air from one place to another instead of creating it. For example, when your heat pump is working as your heating, instead of expending energy to create heat, it takes the warm air from outdoors and brings it indoors. When it’s working as your air conditioner, it operates in the reverse and removes the heat from the indoor air, sending it outside, leaving only cool air inside with you. Since nothing is really created, it’s a very energy-efficient process, saving on energy costs.
So whether your current heat pump is acting up and requires a professional or you’d rather discuss a new heat pump or regular maintenance, call and talk with one of our knowledgeable technicians.
Your home’s HVAC ductwork may not be that exciting of a topic to you, but at M E Brown, we could talk about it all day. That system of sheet metal is a complex labyrinth that’s very precise and detailed. We take great pride in our professional team’s ability to successfully install such a system, additionally because it plays a central role in your HVAC system.
Here in River Oaks, TX, we know how important indoor air is to the health of your HVAC system, your home, and your personal system––your body. Your ductwork is responsible for carrying that air back and forth, so it’s imperative that it’s installed correctly. Any problems can result in bigger issues in your heating, cooling, air distribution, air filtration, or dehumidification. That’s why our ductwork team is certified and knowledgeable––each member knows how critical his or her job is, so those types of errors just don’t occur here. They recognize the job they do will have an impact on the overall efficiency and lifespan of your heating-and-cooling system.
Working with an experienced and knowledgeable team makes all the difference in ductwork installation. Call us today to see how we can make a difference for you.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is a term used to describe the air quality inside your home. You may be surprised to learn that your IAQ may be much more polluted than the outdoor air around your home, no matter if you live downtown or out in a more rural area. Here in River Oaks, TX, there’s been much media coverage on IAQ over the past few years as more becomes known about its effects. At M E Brown, we take this very seriously, as we’re aware of just how subpar IAQ can contribute to poor health.
Poor IAQ has even been linked to serious illnesses like cancer. But even conditions not as serious, like allergies and chronic illnesses, have been proven to be triggered by poor IAQ. All these facts make it more important than ever to properly maintain your home’s HVAC system. Keeping your system in good working order does more than just save you money. It keeps pollutants at bay, resulting in better health for you. Things like dirty or poorly sealed ductwork, a clogged air filter, or a neglected humidifier contribute to poor IAQ. All these possible contaminants make their way to you and your lungs, possibly triggering disease and illness.
Our team of professionals knows that regular maintenance of your HVAC system can make such a difference. Call and talk to us today about how we can help improve your home’s IAQ.
High humidity in a sauna is a good thing. High humidity in your home is not. Humidity is moisture, and too much of it can cause an entire host of problems in your home. Living here in River Oaks, TX, we have our share of humid days, and this humidity always manages to make its way indoors. We at M E Brown know the best way to protect your home is with a whole-house dehumidifier.
The humidity that makes its way indoors has a way of promoting mold and microbes in your home’s air, negatively affecting your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). The mold and microbes can damage both your home’s contents and your body. The best way to battle the humidity is by controlling it by way of reducing it. That’s exactly what a dehumidifier does––removes the excess moisture from your home’s air. Besides protecting what’s inside your home, including you, reducing humidity levels also saves your air conditioner by preventing it from working so hard. This saves on energy, saving you money, and helps to extend your system’s life, also saving you money in the long run.
Our experienced professionals can tell you that having a whole-house humidifier offers many advantages for you and your home. Call us today to learn more about them.
Just as too much humidity in your home can wreak havoc, too little humidity is equally bad. With too little humidity, your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) can be negatively affected. It’s all a fine-tuned balancing act, which our experienced M E Brown professionals are more than qualified to oversee. They’re aware that by living here in River Oaks, TX, your home will experience its share of dry-air days. That’s precisely why they highly recommend have a whole-house humidifier working with your HVAC system.
When it’s too dry in your home, your body will notice the difference and may suffer needlessly. You may experience increased allergies, breathing issues, or chronic illnesses. With this lack of moisture in your home’s air, your home most likely will present with issues as well. Woodwork and furniture can dry out and crack, appliances will not be running as smoothly and may break down more often, and your HVAC system will be working harder and may also break down more frequently. All these negative effects can be prevented by simply installing a humidifier and keeping it properly maintained.
Speak with one of our highly trained professionals about the delicate balance needed in your home for optimum comfort and health. Whether you’d like to schedule a quote, a maintenance appointment, or if your humidifier needs repairing, a member of our team is happy to speak with you any time.
