Contemporary homes like this one in Concord MA are known for having uneven heating and cooling. With all the windows, dormers and sloped roof lines with varied ceiling heights, it can be a challenge to get the air circulation just right.
That’s why, in the past, our homeowners opted to add Mitsubishi ductless air conditioner to their homes. The units evenly distribute cool air throughout the space better than standard window air conditioners.
Years later, the homeowners were still struggling in cooler weather with hot and cold spots, as their forced hot water oil heat with radiators weren’t getting the job done.
They were looking for a more permanent solution than relying on space heaters. This was especially true in the living room and kitchen areas.
When they gave us a call, we knew we could easily upgrade their current Mitsubishi electric ductless cooling system with a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat ductless system. The new system would ensure they got the year-round comfort they craved without costing them a fortune in energy bills.
Problem: A contemporary home in Concord MA added Mitsubishi ductless for cooling only a number of years ago, but were looking to add supplemental heating as well as cooling to their home.
Solution: Upgrading the older Mitsubishi ductless units with newer Mitsubishi Electric Hyper Heat ductless units will ensure the homeowners get the state of the art heating and cooling year round that they deserve.
Zoned HVAC Offers Even Heating and Cooling
Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning systems are designed to create separate zones of heating and cooling in a home. This allows you to get the perfect temperature exactly where you need it most.
Contemporary homes like this one were built before forced hot air heating and cooling was standard. Adding cooling with Mitsubishi ductless mini-split systems is an excellent choice, and one these homeowners had been really happy with for a number of years.
While you can opt to add just ductless AC, more and more homeowners are adding units that can both heat and cool the space they’re in efficiently and effectively. This ensures you get year-round comfort.
Newer Heat Pumps Save on Energy Bills
In the past, heat pump systems were inefficient in colder weather; however, Mitsubishi Electric’s new Hyper Heat systems provide cost-effective heating down to -13 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s colder weather that we ever see here in the Boston area.
The ductless systems use a special inverter technology, similar to the expensive two-stage systems you see on high end, whole home systems. They are designed to use the minimum amount of energy necessary to keep your home perfectly comfortable.
The indoor units monitor your home for temperature and humidity, and use the smallest amount of energy possible to maintain your comfort level perfectly.
This efficiency, coupled with zoning, ends up saving many homeowners 35 to 40 percent on their energy bills!
Upgrading Ductless Units in a Contemporary Home
For this home, it was simple to replace the existing Mitsubishi ductless units with newer, upgraded Mitsubishi Electric Hyper Heat systems. The new units can deliver both heating and cooling on demand to the kitchen and living room areas that only had added cooling before.
Now, the homeowners will get the same state of the art cooling comfort they had before with heating as well. And, it’s all delivered as quiet as a whisper.
What Does Added Heating Do for Homeowners
Many of our homeowners find that the supplemental heat provided by their Mitsubishi ductless units lets them add just that touch of heat they need on rainy spring days or those first frosty days of fall. Now, they can easily keep their home the perfect temperature.
This unit adds just enough heat to ensure everyone is more comfortable, but because of zoning, the family doesn’t have to crank up the heat for the whole home to get the comfort they need in a specific room. This also means they can delay turning on the heat for the season for weeks, and even turn off the main heating system earlier in the Spring.
However, they can still get that small blast of heat they may want on unexpectedly clammy days, without needing an extra tank of oil for the main system.
Energy Savings and Cash Rebates
Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Hyper Heat systems are so efficient they qualify for rebate programs through Mass Save and Mass CEC. These homeowners were able to save $1,250 with a rebate from the Mass CEC program, making this comfort upgrade to their home even more affordable.
