When Bob Eyman launched Eyman Plumbing in 1957 its primary business was plumbing and drain services. The company now has six divisions and uses such new technology as remote visual inspections and customized climate control systems. Tom Eyman, Bob’s grandson and a member of the family that runs the company six decades later, said he always tells his employees to treat their customers the same way they’d treat their own mothers. “When you treat a customer fairly and go that extra step,” he said, “you often win the customer for life.”

Known as the “fix-it” company, Eyman often gets calls to handle the toughest problems. “We have to be flexible. We’ll work nights, Sundays and holidays because when you need us, it can’t always be on our terms.” One of the hottest technology trends in HVAC is the introduction of ductless heating and air systems. You may have noticed these small, indoor devices installed high on walls in homes, restaurants or office buildings. These systems, Eyman said, offer powerful advantages for your home … and your energy budget:


Traditional central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through ducts. A ductless design instead delivers air directly into various zoned areas of your home. The system is comprised of a small-footprint outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that require nothing more than access to electricity. Ductless cooling and heating offers home and business owners a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. Ductless systems can even be fit for buildings that currently use ducted forced-air systems.


As utility costs soar, one of the biggest advantages to ductless is found in your wallet. Ductless systems operate on less power and the zoned, room-by-room approach means there is no loss in efficiency. Homeowners may also be eligible for federal, state or local tax credits or utility rebates for the year they are installed.


Your ducts were clean the day they were installed. And that’s about it. Dust and allergens remain even after cleaning. Ductless systems have sophisticated filtration capabilities that drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.


Traditional systems, especially in older homes, can take several weeks to install and disrupts your daily life. Ductless systems are far less invasive to install. Ductless systems run on small pipes that require a mere three-inch hole. No tearing down walls. No loss of square footage. No mess. Just clean, fresh air.


The small size of a ductless cooling system and its zoning capabilities allows for greater energy efficiency. These systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, which means they are far more energy efficient than the minimum standards set forth by the federal government. Improved efficiency saves money, of course, but it also helps reduce your total carbon output. And ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential. This means the system will have less impact on the environment

throughout its life. Energy efficient. Environmentally friendly. Completely customizable to exact, zone-by-zone temperatures. Consistent, year-round comfort.

How’s that for a no-fuss solution for your home? “My grandfather would probably be scratching his head if he could see how technology has changed virtually everything in our homes,” Eyman said, “But I know he’d be proud to see that we’re delivering that new technology with the same family commitment to the community.

Science is great, but happy, comfortable customers are even better.”
