Colonial homes, like this one in Needham, MA, are a typical housing style in the area. They are often older homes built before modern central HVAC systems, and the homeowners frequently experience heating and cooling problems.
This family was experiencing that very problem when they called N.E.T.R., Inc. The home had an existing oil heating system, which was less than adequate for the cold Massachusetts winters, and there was no air conditioning system. The family did not want to have to rely on a space heater for supplemental heating in the winter because they are known to cause fires.
Furthermore, they wanted to avoid the need for window air conditioning units in the summer. The family knew that window ACs were notoriously loud and expensive to run. Also, these types of AC units made it easy for burglars to break in by pushing the unit through the window.
Problem: The home’s existing oil heating system needed help to keep the family warm in the winter, and there was no AC system installed. This family needed a year-round heating and cooling solution.
Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. designed a ductless mini-split system with Hyper-Heating technology to ensure they were comfortable all year long. This system involved a single outdoor condenser with one indoor wall-mounted ductless AC.
Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Mini-Splits
This family knew they needed a heating and cooling system to fix their problems, so they spoke to N.E.T.R., Inc. about their options. Paul Varonakis, the project manager on this case, assured the homeowners that a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split system with Hyper-Heating technology would be the ideal solution.

The Mitsubishi ductless AC unit would act as both a high-quality air conditioner, eliminating the need for window ACs, and a state-of-the-art heat pump. This complete system would allow the family to solve both of their problems with one, simple install. The homeowners were thrilled and could not wait for Paul and his crew to get started.
The dining room and kitchen experienced the most uneven heating and cooling in this home. Both rooms were inadequately heated from the oil heating system, which left them chilly during the winter months.
The summertime was even worse, especially in the kitchen. The lack of central air meant that the residual heat from cooking or sunlight had no way to escape. The family found both rooms unbearable on the hottest of days.
Paul knew that the wall-mounted ductless AC unit would provide the best air circulation in the two rooms. He was able to mount the unit in an optimal location that allowed it to heat and cool both the kitchen and the dining room with ease.
Additionally, the family wanted to be able to control the new ductless units from anywhere. So, N.E.T.R., Inc. made sure that the Mitsubishi ductless system had compatibility with the Kumo Cloud app.
Now, the family can turn on the AC in the kitchen on their way home from work using their smartphone, giving the system time to cool the area down before the homeowners arrive to cook dinner. They can also turn off the Mitsubishi mini-split unit when the dining room and kitchen are not in use. This flexibility will help save them money in the long run.
The owners of this Colonial home in Needham, MA can now happily enjoy the comfort of their kitchen and dining room, thanks to the Mitsubishi ductless mini-split system from N.E.T.R., Inc. The unit is controlled independently from the home’s oil heat thermostat, so it will be easy to customize the level of heat they want in those rooms. Additionally, the Mitsubishi system is easy to expand upon later. So, if the family decides they need extra cooling in the bedrooms or living room, the expansion is easy.
Another benefit of choosing a ductless system is the savings the family will see on their energy bills all year long. These ductless units are so energy efficient that they require about the same amount of energy to function as a standard light bulb. Plus, they are known for being environmentally friendly systems, and that qualified these homeowners for a rebate of $215! These energy-saving rebates are an excellent way for these owners to save on the upfront cost of installation.
The family will also continue to see savings all your long as the supplemental ductless heating reduces the strain on the oil heating system, prolonging the life of both. Most homeowners see a drop in their energy bills within the first month!
