Keeping an air conditioning system tune-up and ready to help you with the heat is an important job here in Phoenix.
If you are planning to change your HVAC system during the fall, one of the choices you may run into is whether you should go with a standard system that uses ductwork or switch to the increasingly popular ductless mini split heat pump.

This can make life unpleasant even for people with modest allergies.
