Mike Cappuccio from N.E.T.R. Inc. talks about zoned heating and cooling systems, what they are, and why a ductless system offers more flexibility for heating and cooling your home, as well as offering more energy efficiency than traditional ducted systems.
Hello, my name is Mike Cappuccio. I’m with N.E.T.R. Inc. in North Andover, Massachusetts. I’m here today to talk to you about zone systems in your home.
Okay, what are they? When you install a Mitsubishi system in your home, what you’re installing is a “zone comfort” system. You’re installing a system with zones into your home, where each part or each room of your home can be controlled by temperature. Examples, you could have one room at 65 degrees, one room at 75 degrees. Depending on what you want to do, you can even have one room off. Traditional systems don’t offer that. Traditional systems just all come on at once and shut off at once, and usually, you only have one thermostat in the home. The disadvantages to that are, you have hot and cold spots in your home, throughout areas of your home, because the system sometimes isn’t running in those areas, because once that thermostat is satisfied in that particular spot, the system shuts off or comes on depending on what the temperature there is.
With our zone comfort systems, basically we put a system in each room in your home. You can turn the temperature up, turn the temperature down, or turn the temperature off in those rooms if no one’s using them, allowing the system to be much more energy efficient than a traditional ducted system.
