Our certified technicians at Vogel know that there is not a "one size fits all" solution for keeping every home cool. We spend the time to properly select and fit our HVAC systems to each unique home, including those that may be ductless, constructed with plaster or have additions and other rooms that are not adequately controlled by the primary HVAC system.
Often in homes with the above obstacles, our St. Louis customers prefer the installation of a ductless mini split system for convenience and seamless temperature control throughout the entire house. The system allows for temperature control smaller spaces without the addition of a full second system or additional ductwork.
Mini Split Heat Pumps
As temperatures drop, mini split systems serve as heat pumps for rooms that tend to trap in colder air, thus helping your main furnace not work as hard in the coldest months of the year. Though the system is connected to the outside of your home, mini split systems do not run the risk of freezing due to snow and ice, or overheating like many other space heating options, providing year-round comfort in your home.
Mini splits can also help conserve energy in your home during the fall and winter months, allowing you complete control over the temperature in that specific area. A powerful heat pump, your mini split system can warm up a cooler space in your home relatively quickly, meaning it does not need to be running 24/7 like your main heating system.
Mini Split Air Conditioner
Most frequently used in home additions, four-seasons rooms and upper level spaces that tend to retain heat in the summer months, mini split systems offer an efficient way to rapidly cool a smaller space. The temperature can be controlled to match that of your main HVAC system to avoid inconsistencies in temperature and imbalance in cooling efforts between the two systems.

What should humidity be in the house with air conditioning?
The ideal level of humidity for air conditioning should hover around 40-60% - too low or high can result in uncomfortable side effects. Too much moisture can lead to problems such as damp walls, mold and mildew, while too little humidity can cause static electricity, dry skin, and crackling woodwork. Having the right balance is an important component of managing indoor air quality. With regular maintenance and adjustments of your air conditioner’s settings as needed, you’ll be able to keep your house at the optimal humidity level all year round.
If you have dealt with humidity issues for as long as your AC has been in place, it may be improperly sized for your home.
How often do you need to add Freon to a central air conditioning unit?
Refrigerant should not need to be added to an AC system unless you have a leak. It is a closed system. If you have a leak, it’s important it is repaired before your AC is recharged, otherwise you will be paying over and over for expensive Freon, or Puron if your unit is newer than 2010.
What brands of air conditioners do you service?
We repair virtually every type of unit from every major brand:
