The owner of this condo in Charlestown, MA loved the location of their home but found several issues with the heating and air conditioning. The condo’s electric heating system did a decent job of keeping the owner comfortable in the winter, but they were still experiencing hot and cold spots in the 500 square foot space.
Another problem that arose with the home was the lack of air conditioning. Summers in Charlestown can get very hot, and this owner did not want to have to resort to window ACs to stay cool. Window ACs are a solution used by many homeowners in the area, but they are inefficient and often cost a fortune to run.
This owner knew it was time to find a more permanent solution.
The Problem: A condo in Charlestown, MA had no central AC and was heated with electric heat, which left the owner with hot and cold spots throughout the home. The home’s lack of AC meant this owner would have to rely on window ACs and fans unless they found a better solution.
The Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. designed a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split heating and air conditioning system for year-round comfort. The entire system consisted of two indoor wall-mounted AC units and a single outdoor heat pump.
Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Mini-Splits
After researching some options, this owner found N.E.T.R., Inc. and read some of our many online reviews written by customers near them. They discovered that our status as the #1 Elite Diamond Dealer for Mitsubishi Electric in Boston and the surrounding areas would allow more exceptional customer service and satisfaction. N.E.T.R., Inc. can offer our customers extended warranties for up to 12 years thanks to this special status.
After meeting with the owner, Jimmy Smithell, the project manager, knew that a three-unit ductless design would work the best for this condo. He knew that the Mitsubishi ductless units offer both heating and cooling capabilities, allowing our customer to get the year-round comfort they craved with a single install.
After viewing the condo, Jimmy knew that he could give this owner year-round comfort with a simple, Mitsubishi mini-split ductless AC system. The two indoor units would be less expensive to operate than window ACs during the summer and will help to lower the heating bills in the winter by offering supplemental heat.
The first unit was installed in the kitchen/living space. It was mounted high on the wall to achieve maximum air distribution throughout the space. The second unit was placed in the master bedroom. Both indoor AC units then had thin tubing run through the walls like electrical wiring to the outdoor condenser unit, which was placed behind the home.
Each of the indoor AC units has its own thermostat so that the rooms can be adjusted individually. This feature will help to save the owner money on monthly bills by allowing them to customize the heating and cooling in these rooms. If one room is not in use, they can turn off the unit in that room and save even more.
Not only do these ductless AC unit offering heating and cooling, but they also monitor the humidity in the room. These Mitsubishi air conditioners adjust the air quality and humidity to provide the best comfort all year long.
Because these Mitsubishi ductless systems are built with energy-efficient technology, they take very little energy to run. This design results in lower energy bills, even when the system is being used for supplemental heating and cooling purposes.
In this case, the owner will see a significant drop in their energy bills during the summer and additional savings in the winter. By using the ductless units as supplemental heating for their existing electric heating, they will avoid having to use dangerous space heaters to get that extra touch of warmth on unusually cold days.
Additional savings were found for this owner by applying for rebates. The Mass Save programs offer rebates for environmentally friendly upgrades. N.E.T.R., Inc. assisted this owner in applying for $1,500 in rebates to help reduce the overall cost of the installation. Now, they’ll see monthly savings and be able to enjoy their condo at the perfect temperature all year, without worrying about the expense.
Another great benefit to the ductless system is that it is a long-term investment in the condo that will help increase its value over time. This way, when the owner is ready to sell, the value of the home has increased due to the updated system.
