Cambridge Condo Replaces Gas Heat with Ductless

This condo in Cambridge, MA, replaced its gas heat with a Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling system.

Gas heating systems are common throughout Massachusetts. Not long ago, heating with natural gas was the best way to get quality heating throughout your home. Today, gas heating systems have been outdated by newer technology like the Mitsubishi ductless heat pumps with cool climate capabilities. These new ductless heating and cooling systems provide everything you need for temperature control with more flexibility and precision.

The owners of this Cambridge, MA, condo were ready to find a new heating solution to their gas heat so that they could have more control over their comfort in the winters. Additionally, the family wanted to find a more efficient cooling solution than window ACs or box fans to keep their home comfortable during the summer.

The Problem: The gas heat in this Cambridge, MA, condo was doing a decent job keeping the family comfortable in the winter, but it was inefficient and expensive to run. Additionally, the family wanted something that could replace their gas heat and provide cooling in the summer.

The Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc., installed a ductless system with multiple zones of temperature control to provide the family with pinpoint comfort throughout the house. The new Mitsubishi ductless wall-mounted system features both heating and cooling capabilities.

The Design

After researching some options for heating and cooling their condo, the owners discovered N.E.T.R., Inc., and knew we would be able to design the perfect system for their home. Our years of experience, hundreds of customer reviews, and status as the #1 Elite Diamond Dealer for Mitsubishi Electric Ductless in Boston convinced this family that we’d have the solution they were looking for.

After meeting with the comfort consultant, the owners agreed that a three-zone ductless system with both heating and cooling capabilities was the best fit. The three rooms that would need comfort control were the living room, master bedroom, and the spare room. Each of these spaces would have a single ductless wall-mounted unit installed to provide the room with the best airflow.

The Installation

After planning the installation with the owners, the team got to work preparing the home for the new ductless system. First, the concrete pad needed to be poured and the outdoor unit installed. The heat pump selected for this installation was a Mitsubishi Electric outdoor unit with cold climate heating capability, which will allow for both heating and cooling in the home.

Next, the indoor wall-mounted ductless units were positioned and mounted on the walls where they would be out of the way. Each of the units had piping snaked through the walls behind it to connect it to the outdoor heat pump. Line hide was used on all of the piping on the exterior of the home to disguise the pipes as much as possible. This step helps to preserve the aesthetic of the home.

The new ductless mini splits inside the home all had standard remote controls set up to allow the family to easily control the temperature in the rooms individually. This gives the owners more control over the comfort in their home by allowing them to set the temperature of each room independently from the others.

The Benefits

Now that the new system is installed and ready to use, the family will start seeing energy savings right away! The Mitsubishi ductless system is more energy efficient and cost-effective than other air conditioning or heating solutions. Additionally, because they chose to replace the gas heat system with the new Mitsubishi mini split system, they’ll be able to enjoy all the warmth they crave on the coldest days of winter.

During the summer, the family can enjoy high-quality cooled air in the house to keep their space comfortable without the noise and hassle of window ACs. Unlike window units, ductless wall-mounted units are whisper-quiet, so the owners will never have to worry about talking over a noisy AC in the summertime.

Because of the energy-efficiency of these ductless systems, the family applied for a Mass Save rebate and received $592 in return!
