As with many of the homes in Boston, MA, this Brownstone was built without a central air conditioning system. The owners knew that installing a ducted system would require a lot of renovations to the home, so they were looking for a heating and cooling solution that would not require significant reconstruction.
The home’s electrical baseboard heating system kept the house relatively warm in the winter, but it was an inefficient system, and the homeowners wanted to take advantage of the rebates available for upgrading their home to ductless. The Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling system was an excellent fit for this home all around.
The Problem: The owners of this Brownstone condo in Boston, MA, wanted to upgrade their home to make it more comfortable all year. The lack of a central AC system left them hot during the summer, and the electric baseboard heating system was expensive to run.
The Solution: Learn how N.E.T.R., Inc., helped this family upgrade to ductless heating and cooling to provide high-quality comfort every day of the year and saved the homeowners $10,000 in rebates!
The team at N.E.T.R., Inc., was able to design a three-zoned ductless system with an outdoor heat pump that would be able to keep the entire home heated and cooled. This design would provide the family with the comfort control they craved while also providing a more energy-efficient solution to their heating system than the electric baseboard heating system could provide.
Outside the home, the Mitsubishi heat pump can easily provide the heated and cooled air to all the indoor units. The three rooms that needed ductless units installed were the master bedroom, the living room, and the office.
Before the new Mitsubishi Electric heat pump could be installed, the team had to clear out the old electric baseboard heating system. By replacing this outdated system, the family will be able to have greater control of their comfort. Outside the home, the Mitsubishi heat pump was mounted on the brickwork outside the home, which will make it easy to access in the future while keeping it out of the way.
Inside the home, the three wall units were installed on the walls of each room, where they can provide the best airflow throughout the room. The ductless wall units are placed on the walls after a small hole is cut to allow the tubing to connect to the outdoor heat pump.
This tubing is highly efficient and transfers the heated or cooled air, so almost no energy is lost between the heat pump and the ductless wall unit. The incredible efficiency of this system makes it easy to enjoy premium comfort throughout the home.
One of the primary reasons the owners of this Brownstone chose to upgrade their home’s heating system was because of the rebates available right now for installing more energy-efficient heating and cooling systems. The family qualified for $10,000 in rebates for switching their home from an electric baseboard heating system to a Mitsubishi Electric ductless heat pump with heating and cooling capabilities.
The upgraded system will allow the family to see substantial energy savings on their bills over the winter, which they can use to provide the home with cooling relief in the summer. Now, this Brownstone condo will be comfortable all year long, instead of leaving the family struggling to stay cool in the summer without using window A/Cs.
Another way that this new installation will improve the comfort of this condo is because each of the units operates independently. This design allows the family to adjust each room to the comfort needed for that space. If the living room needs a little extra cooling because of the way the sun hits it in the afternoon, the owners simply adjust the temperature with a touch of a button on the remote, and they will be able to enjoy the relief they crave.
