Like many of the homes in Roslindale, MA, this adorable two-story Dutch Colonial was built without central AC. The process to install the ductwork needed for a centralized system would be lengthy, expensive, and require massive construction inside the home.
The family had been avoiding installing a new air conditioning system for just these reasons. They had been using a window AC unit to keep the office cool in the summertime. However, this was expensive to run and left the home with hot and cold areas.
Additionally, window units are known security risks for homes. There have been numerous reports of burglars breaking into homes by pushing window units through the window into the home. This security threat was something the family wanted to avoid, so they started looking into alternative options for cooling their office.
The Problem: The family owners of this two-story Dutch Colonial home in Roslindale, MA, had no air conditioning in the office. They were using a window AC to keep cool, but the expense and safety risks were not worth the air conditioning provided.
The Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. installed a Mitsubishi ductless AC system with a single indoor air handler and one outdoor condenser unit. The new AC system is designed to allow for further expansion if the family needs additional cooling in the future.
Cooling a home with window ACs is an expensive solution that often leaves hot and cold spots throughout the space. That was just one of the reasons that this family decided to find a new AC system that would reduce their monthly bills and keep them comfortable.

When the family called, Jimmy Smithell went to meet them and assess the space. He recommended a single Mitsubishi ductless AC unit with an outdoor condenser to solve the cooling problem in the office. This system would be easy to install, provide an energy-efficient solution, and give the family the option to expand in the future.
The single indoor AC unit was installed in the study, on the wall, and then tubing was piped to the outdoor air condenser. Jimmy ran twenty-five feet of tubing through the walls like electrical wiring to connect the indoor AC to the outdoor unit. This tubing allows the air to travel from outside the home to the office without the need for extensive ductwork.
The Mitsubishi ductless AC system is a great option for this family. This ductless installation will allow the family excellent air conditioning for their office space without major construction. They will be able to control the comfort of the room with pinpoint accuracy.
The Mitsubishi Electric ductless unit is controlled with a remote, so the owner can make adjustments from their desk, without interrupting their work. Another benefit of the ductless system is that it is whisper-quiet. Now, the owner won’t have to listen to a noisy AC unit all summer, instead, they can take conference calls without any background noise.
The outdoor condenser unit is built to supply up to five indoor ACs. If the family ever needs to expand its system to the kitchen, living room, or bedrooms, they only need to call N.E.T.R., Inc.
Additionally, the Mitsubishi Electric ductless units function as high-quality heat pumps. Now, if the office is chilly in the winter, the owner can turn on the new system and enjoy a touch of heat. This option on the new system will help to reduce their oil heating bills by supplementing the existing system.
These Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning systems are incredibly energy efficient. This efficiency allows the family to enjoy high-quality comfort without spending a fortune. In the summer, they’ll notice a significant drop in their energy bills compared to previous years. This change is due to the inefficiency of window ACs, which often are not sealed properly and allow treated air to escape easily.
The new unit can even be turned off when not in use to save even more money. Now, the family can make the office the ideal temperature every day and stop overspending to heat and cool the room when it is not being used.
