The family that lives in this Colonial home in Swampscott, Massachusetts, were ready to upgrade their house with an air conditioning system. The home had an existing oil heating system that worked wonderfully in the winter, but there was no air conditioning to keep the family comfortable in the summer.
For years, the owners had been resorting to using window AC units to keep their family room cool on hot days. However, this solution came with its share of problems. First, the window AC units have to be installed and uninstalled every year when the weather changes. Additionally, window ACs are notoriously noisy, inefficient, and expensive to run.
Another possible problem with this cooling solution is that some burglars have used window ACs to gain access to homes through the open windows where they are placed. All of these factors lead the family to call N.E.T.R. Inc., for an air conditioning upgrade.
The Problem: This Colonial home in the Historic Olmsted District needed an air conditioning system to replace their inefficient, noisy, and expensive window ACs in the living room.
The Solution: N.E.T.R. Inc., installed a single Mitsubishi ductless AC unit in the family room to provide cooling relief that is quiet, simple to use, and energy-efficient.
After meeting with the family and touring the home, the team at N.E.T.R. Inc., knew that a single Mitsubishi ductless AC placed in the family room would be the perfect solution. The indoor unit would be floor-mounted on the wall to keep it out of the family’s way and provide optimal airflow throughout the space.
Additionally, the Mitsubishi Electric AC system would require a condenser unit to be installed. This condenser would be placed on the side of the home where it would be out of sight but easy to access.
The first thing that N.E.T.R. Inc., needed to do for the new AC installation was to pour a concrete pad for the condenser unit. This pad would help to keep the condenser stable while also protecting it from blockage due to debris or snow. Next, the Mitsubishi ductless condenser was installed on the concrete pad.
Refrigerant lines were run from the unit to the wall, where they would be snaked into the interior walls of the home, like electrical wiring, until the lines reach the indoor air handler. This ductless way of moving the air from the condenser unit outside to the indoor AC units requires only a small hole in the wall behind the indoor AC.
The indoor unit was mounted on the floor in an open area so that the treated air would easily circulate throughout the room. Once the entire system was connected, it was ready to start providing high-quality air conditioning to this family.
This family will reap the benefits of their Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning installation for years to come. One way they have already saved is by qualifying for a Mass Save rebate of $354, just for installing an energy-efficient system in their home.
The Mitsubishi ductless system is easy to control and comes with a remote that will allow the family to change the temperature setting from the comfort of the couch. Additionally, this ductless HVAC system monitors the humidity in the air and makes adjustments to keep the owners perfectly comfortable.
Yet another way the family will enjoy this air conditioning upgrade is through the savings they’ll see every month! Window AC units are extremely expensive to run and struggle to keep up with the heat. The Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning unit only takes up about the same energy as a light bulb. Now, the homeowners won’t be spending a fortune to keep their home cooler in the summertime.
Lastly, should they ever find themselves in need of supplemental heating in the winter, the ductless system can be used for heating the home, as well! By pressing a button on the remote, the owners can switch the Mitsubishi AC system over to heat and warm up the family room if the oil heating goes out.
