This lovely ranch home in Ipswich wasn’t comfortable all year round for the owners. The couple began exploring ways to add both heating and cooling to their home, since the electric heat and pellet stove weren’t perfect, and there was no air conditioning at all in the home.
As a result, they were getting uneven heating in the winter, and no cooling at all in the summer. Hauling pellets around all the time was getting to be a burden, so they called N.E.T.R., Inc. to explore their options to solve their heating and cooling issues, once and for all.
Problem: The existing heating and cooling system was inefficient, lots of work to maintain, and didn’t provide comfort to the whole home. The electric heat and pellet stove combination were costly and hauling pellets around was starting to become a drag. In addition to this, the home had no air conditioning, so it was hot in the summer.
The problem this home had was with both heating and cooling in their Ipswich ranch cape-style home.
We see this situation frequently — homeowners will use pellet or wood stoves for heat, and love the charm, but worrying about pellet supply, storage, delivery, and hauling the pellets around gets to be simply too much.
We knew we could help them out by not only giving them a fuss-free heating solution, but also providing them with much needed air conditioning to ensure comfort and enjoyment of their charming home.
Our Solution: We installed two Mitsubishi Hyper Heat ductless systems that will allow for zoned heating and cooling for the whole home.
These units maintain efficiency down to -13 degrees, unlike conventional heat pump systems, making them a great choice for whatever old man winter dishes out.
Mitsubishi Hyper Heat is also a ductless air conditioning system, getting rid of the need for inefficient window based air conditioners to provide comfort 365 days a year, rain or shine.
Our Woburn-based comfort specialist was thrilled to design a system that would be able to supplement the existing system while enhancing comfort, and we were able to do this while increasing efficiency and reducing overall costs for the homeowner.
This couple was also able to save money with a rebate of $1,250!
Because Mitsubishi ductless heating is energy efficient technology, Massachusetts provides the highest level of available rebates for these systems, since they are helping out the environment.
Additionally, when your system is installed by one of Mitsubishi Electric’s Elite contractors like N.E.T.R., Inc., the warranty on parts is extended to twelve years, giving you peace of mind as well as increased comfort in your home.
There are still rebates in the kitty, so if you are interested in this type of energy efficient equipment, be sure to ask your comfort specialist about what sort of rebates would apply.
To recap the key points of this particular home and our solution:
- The homeowners now have a comfortable, quiet ductless solution to heat and cool their ranch cape-style home.
- They no longer will be worried about storing and dragging pellets around to make sure they have enough heat, and they have dramatically increased the energy efficiency of their home.
