Year-Round Comfort for This Brownstone Condo
A lot of traditional Brownstone buildings in Boston have been converted into condominiums. In this case, the whole building functioned on a single heating system, which did not provide every homeowner the comfort they needed. While electric heat was included in the condo fee, our homeowner never felt warm enough in her space. When she called us, we knew that we could help her get the comfort she craved, independent of the heating system serving the whole building.
Problem: The existing heating system was designed for the entire building, but left our homeowner feeling cold. The uneven heating, although included in the condo fee, forced our homeowner to look for cost-effective, supplemental heating to make her home a warm and inviting space.
Solution: A single zone Mitsubishi ductless split system powered by an outdoor condenser and a single wall-mounted unit will provide our homeowner with the heating comfort she craves. This system will also provide air conditioning in the summer, giving her year-round comfort.
An Incredible Investment
Because Mitsubishi Electric ‘s Hyper-Heating is one of the most efficient systems available, most homeowners see their energy bills drop by adding ductless units. Our condo owner will still have the fee for the old system, but we are confident that her new heating bills will be small, especially when compared with other alternatives like space heaters.
In addition, Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heating systems provide air conditioning in the summer! Rather than relying on window units, our homeowner will also get a burst of cool air, whenever the heat of summer sets in. That’s an extra benefit everyone in our area can appreciate!
Our homeowner also qualified for a $625 Mass CEC and a $500 Mass Save rebate by installing this efficient technology! This means she received a total of $1125 towards the price of the unit and will be able to achieve comfort every day of the year as a result. Her investment will also increase the eventual resale value of her Condo by choosing some of the best heating and air conditioning technology available to the residential market.
The warranty on all qualifying systems installed after April 1, 2015 has been extended to 12 years! Click here to see the details.
Heating & Cooling Solution for Any Boston Brownstone
Brownstones are located throughout the city- sometimes they are single family homes, and often they are multi-family condos, like this one. N.E.T.R., Inc. has the experience in all sorts of brownstone installations to meet the needs of and homeowner with heating and cooling problems.
Our owner needed to be able to control the heat in her unit, and a single head Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heating unit worked wonders for her. The unit was installed in her kitchen, providing heat and air circulation throughout her home. We were able to thread the wiring through her bathroom and install the outdoor unit right under the fire escape stairs- without interfering with the safety of the escape.
Installation with Little Visual Impact
We were able to tuck the outdoor unit conveniently under the fire escape stairs, avoiding any additional visual clutter to the building while still maximizing our homeowner’s comfort.
As you can see from the picture below, the unit is placed right under the stairs but not in the way of exit and safety- making it a perfect place to minimize the impact on neighbors or the outside of the building.
