The summers in Hudson, NH, have been increasingly hard to bear for this family living in a split-level home. Like most split-level homes, this house had problems with heating and air conditioning evenly, leaving the family with hot and cold spots.
During the winter, the family used the home’s propane heating system. However, in the summertime, they were forced to rely on window AC units. These window units were noisy, expensive, and inefficient to run. The major problem spots in this home were the gym and the two bedrooms.
The gym stayed so hot and humid in the summer that it was almost impossible to use! The window AC units provided some relief, but they weren’t able to keep up on the hottest days of the year.
Additionally, the bedrooms stayed muggy all summer long, which led to sleepless nights tossing and turning in the heat. Another problem the family faced was that the window ACs are extremely noisy, which made getting a good night’s sleep almost impossible!
Window air conditioners are also known to be a security threat for homes since burglars can use them as entry points. There have been many cases reports of burglars entering a home by simply pushing the AC unit into the house and crawling through the window.
The family knew it was time for a change, so they looked into hiring N.E.T.R., Inc.
The Problem: The split-level home was heated with propane and had no central AC, so the family used window ACs. This solution was expensive and offered little relief from the hot summers.
The Solution: N.E.T.R. Inc. designed a system with three indoor ductless AC units that would provide air conditioning and heating for year-round comfort.
After finding numerous 5-star reviews from previous happy customers in the area, this family knew that N.E.T.R., Inc. would be able to design a solution for them. They needed an HVAC system that would provide outstanding air conditioning in the summer and allow them to get rid of their window ACs, which were driving up energy bills. This family also wanted a solution that would be more eco-friendly, since window units are known for being incredibly inefficient.
Most often, the inefficiency in window ACs comes from an improper seal, which lets the hot air leak in from outside. Additional problems come from having to install and store the bulky units, which takes up valuable time and space.
This family was tired of dealing with the window units and ready for an easy solution to all their heating and cooling problems. When Michael Herrick met with the family and walked through the home for his initial assessment, he knew just what to do.
Michael designed a three-zoned ductless system using the existing Hyper-Heating condenser unit that would provide instant cooling relief. Both bedrooms and the gym would have a ductless wall AC installed on the walls. The units would then have thin tubing run through the walls to the outdoor condenser.
Because the ductless units do not require massive reconstruction or renovations, they are excellent solutions for families that are looking for an easy solution. The tubing is run from the indoor air handler to the outdoor condenser like an electrical wire and only requires a small hole to be cut in the wall. This solution is perfect for homes without pre-existing ductwork!
The Benefits of Ductless
The placement of the indoor ductless ACs allows for optimal distribution of the cooled air, which will offer the family pin-point control of their comfort. Using the remote control, they can adjust the temperature with the touch of a button from the comfort of their bed.
Each AC unit functions independently of the others. So, if mom and dad prefer a warm bedroom, but the kids like something a little cooler, no one has to fight over the thermostat. Additionally, the units monitor the humidity of the room and adjust accordingly, providing premium comfort throughout the year, which is especially important in the gym!
In the winter, the family can simply turn off the ductless units and enjoy the heat from their propane heating system. Or, on unusually cold days, they can use the ductless AC units as high-quality heaters for an extra touch of warmth. These units use Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heating technology to keep a room feeling perfect even when the temperatures outside reach -13 degrees!
Another benefit this family will enjoy is the whisper-quiet technology that makes these ductless units ideal for any home. In fact, our ductless systems are so quiet that we’ve installed them in recording studios!
Additionally, the family will see a significant drop in their energy bills this summer, thanks to the ductless system’s energy-efficient design. These units use as much power as a lightbulb to keep a room cool. This change will provide incredible savings when compared to the expense of running the window ACs all summer. The family will even see savings over the winter as they use the new ductless system to supplement their existing propane heating system.
Now, the family can enjoy their home all year round. If they ever decide that they need additional heating and cooling, the ductless system is easy to expand upon, so all they have to do is call N.E.T.R., Inc! Our team can easily expand their existing system into the kitchen, living room, or anywhere they need it.
