Why Go Ductless? 

Ductless heating and cooling, is becoming more popular than ever here in Valley County. These systems have been much more widespread in Europe and other parts of the world for decades. Now, there’s a surge in popularity here in the U.S.

And, it’s easy to understand why! 

With so many cabins and older home here in McCall, not all the heating solutions work as well as they should. Pellet stoves, for instance, provide uneven heat: You’re very warm when you’re close to it but get chilly further away. 

Baseboard heaters treat each room separately. But they’re expensive to run. And propane is more expensive. Plus, you have to rely on regular deliveries. 

On the other hand, a ductless system does it all! You can set each room to the same temperature and stay within a degree of that setting all the time. Or, make each room warmer or cooler, depending on your preference. 

And, with today’s Hyper Heat models, you’ll get warmth and comfort even when it’s -13 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s way colder than it ever gets here in McCall. 

That’s not to mention superior air conditioning all summer. Since this used to be primarily a winter resort town, most homes don’t have AC or ductwork for central air. A mini split is easy to install and provides year-round comfort. 

Finally, it’s energy-efficient and inexpensive to run. Heat pumps use a fraction of the energy baseboard heaters or ACs require. And, with so much electricity provided by nearby rivers, it’s as close as you can get to free heating and cooling!

Outside of sports, Barbara Morgan, the first teacher in space, taught reading and math for years at McCall-Donnelly Elementary school.
