Gloucester Split-Level Home Installs Ductless System

This split-level home in Gloucester, MA, is set in a quiet neighborhood. The family loves the location, but they were beginning to notice problems with keeping their home comfortable. Throughout the year, the house would fluctuate in temperature, especially in the summertime.

Gloucester split-level home goes ductless with Mitsubishi Electric. Because the home was not built with a central AC system, the family knew that they would need a solution that would not require ductwork. Central AC systems work well in homes like this when ductwork already exists. However, this home had no ductwork, and it would need an expensive renovation to have it installed.

Another option they considered was the use of window AC units. Unfortunately, window ACs are known for being inefficient, costly, and noisy. Plus, the family did not want to clog up their windows with these AC units all summer long, only to be left with hot and cold spots where the air wasn’t distributed well. Additionally, window air conditioners are known to be a safety concern for homes because burglars often use them as access points.

Ultimately, the family decided to try a ductless system, which would allow them to gain high-quality cooling without an extensive installation process.


Problem: A split-level home in Gloucester, MA, had no central AC and needed a cooling solution for the increasingly hot summers.

Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. installed a single Mitsubishi ductless AC on the wall of the living room, and a matching outdoor air condenser outside the home.


The Design

Indoor air handler installed in Gloucester, MA, for Mitsubishi ductless system. The homeowners knew that they wanted a ductless air conditioning system for their home, so they began researching contractors in the area. Ultimately, they found that N.E.T.R., Inc. has tons of five-star reviews from previous customers in the area and our status as #1 Elite Diamond Dealers for Mitsubishi ductless in New England. These qualifications made the family confident that N.E.T.R., Inc. could design a solution for their home.

Chip Moeckel met with the owners. He proposed a single Mitsubishi ductless wall AC in the living room with an outdoor condenser installed on the right side of the home under the chimney. This design was simple and would allow the family to enjoy perfectly treated air where they needed it most. Because of the indoor AC placement, the cool air would be evenly distributed throughout the room.

The Installation

Chip and his crew got to work on this Gloucester, MA, project right away. The first thing they had to do was install the concrete pad for the outdoor condenser unit. This pad was placed under the chimney on the right side of the home, where it would be out of the way but easy to access for maintenance.

After the outdoor unit was in place, the indoor unit was installed. Instead of putting in bulky ductwork, the team simply drilled a small hole in the wall behind the AC unit and fed thin tubing through the walls to the outdoor unit. Then, the wall AC was mounted, where it would be able to optimize the airflow throughout the room.

The Benefits

This family will finally enjoy the comfort of their home all year long, thanks to the Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Cooling and Heating System and N.E.T.R., Inc. This new ductless system is a cost-effective solution that will help keep their energy bills low during the summer. Unlike traditional HVAC systems, the ductless air conditioners from Mitsubishi Electric use about the same energy as a light bulb to run. This energy efficiency means that the homeowners can keep their living room cooled all summer for almost nothing.

Additionally, the Mitsubishi ductless system is easy to expand on in the future. The outdoor condenser unit can power up to five indoor ductless ACs, so if the family ever decides to add another unit in the kitchen or bedroom, it will be easy!

The homeowners did not want a system like a window AC that would be noisy to run, especially in the living room where they entertain guests. The ductless system exceeded their expectations by being a whisper-quiet solution. These Mitsubishi ACs are so quiet that we’ve even installed them in recording studios!

Furthermore, the owners can use this ductless unit as a supplemental heating system for their home in the winter. The AC unit can easily switch to provide a touch of warmth on a chilly day, which will help the family save even more on their heating costs.

Not only are these units a year-round convenience for the owners, but they can be controlled with a remote so that the family can make adjustments from the couch! Additionally, if the homeowners ever want to customize the system, even more, they can opt to have a Kumo Cloud system installed, which will allow them to turn the ductless system off and on from their smartphones!

Finally, the Gloucester homeowners can enjoy their home all year round, thanks to N.E.T.R., Inc. and Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Air Conditioning.
