Colonial-style homes in our area were often built without ductwork, and they often use oil radiators of one sort or another for heat. This type of heating can work well for most people in the winter. However, in the summer, they must rely on window air conditioners to try to cut the heat and humidity. Living in a turn of the century house you get used to the ritual of dragging the heavy AC units out of the basement, lugging them up a couple of flights of stairs. Often, multiple people are needed to install the window ACs and make sure they don’t fall out of the window in the process. Also, the insulation must be installed appropriately, so you don’t waste money and energy!
In the fall, the whole painful process must be reversed and frequently took place just before another heat spell set in. It’s an incredibly labor-intensive process for air conditioning. Plus, only the rooms with AC units ever get entirely comfortable, and it’s no wonder that homeowners like ours in Woburn were looking for a better solution.
Solution: Installed two Mitsubishi Hyper-Heating Ductless Units that will cool the kitchen and bedroom with the touch of a button, and provide additional heat, if needed in the winter.
This family needed a comfort upgrade! Their colonial style home has oil heated baseboards for heat, but the home lacked ductwork. This situation left them to rely on window air conditioning units, and their home was uncomfortable for most of the warmer months of the year. The kitchen and bedroom never got the air circulation or cooling needed from the window air conditioning units, which were also causing expensive energy bills.
When they called us, we knew that we could help them eliminate the need for window air conditioners. Installing two wall-mounted ductless units, in the kitchen and bedroom, would provide lasting comfort with a reliable heating and air conditioning system. The wall ACs are mounted out of the way, and the family can use their windows to see outside, instead of looking at an ugly window AC for four to five months a year!
N.E.T.R., Inc. suggested that they install two Mitsubishi Hyper-Heating Ductless Unit. This solution involves one outdoor heat pump, and two indoor wall mounted ductless AC units. The ductless mini-split system is expandable so that this family can add additional indoor ductless ACs in the future. These ductless mini-split ACs can also act as supplemental heat in the winter, so they can take any extra chill out of a room with the remote control, whenever they want.
Best of all, this energy-efficient technology will be able to deliver maximum comfort at a much lower monthly energy cost, any month of the year! Our homeowners were able to save money with a rebate of $1,300 through the Mass Save program. Energy-efficient technology like this Mitsubishi Electric ductless Hyper-Heating system helps everyone, by reducing the overall energy use. Rebates are still available! If you are interested in this type of energy-efficient equipment, ask your N.E.T.R., Inc. heating and air conditioning specialist about what sort of rebates would apply.
