Everyone has heard about all of the scams that are being perpetrated on the elderly.
Unfortunately, not all scams are harmless and it is not just the elderly that is being duped by these clever scammers.
Everyone has a hook and one of the worst is where it comes to ductless heating and air conditioning system. I read one article that guaranteed they could install a ductless HVAC system for less than $200 and the cost for the ductless mini split HVAC unit was less than $2000. After doing some extensive research, I found out that this is the cheapest and least efficient mini split HVAC unit on the market. The installer was not a professional and he was reading the same directions I could have read. If you are truly looking for a ductless HVAC system, it is always best to go to a professional HVAC company. They can tell you what kind of ductless HVAC unit would best suit your needs. They will explain all of the incidental costs that may be included. If you want a ductless HVAC system for your entire home, you will probably need more than one air handler, which is the unit that goes into your home. Depending on the size of your home, if it is quite large, they may even recommend two condensers instead of one. The lesson I learned, is that if it is too good to be true, then call one or more HVAC professionals for other opinions. Don’t be duped by scammers who will take your money and then you pay even more to have the HVAC system reinstalled, or you may even need to buy a new HVAC system.
