We did an installation on Babcock Street in Brookline in a beautiful condo this July. In these homes, the floor you’re on has a lot to do with the cost of the job.
Problem: Unsightly, inefficient, noisy window AC units were installed in holes in the wall, detracting from the home’s overall aesthetic and racking up huge electric bills.
Solution: A three-zone Mitsubishi ductless mini-split system powered by one outdoor condenser and three wall-mounted units was installed for premium cooling throughout the home.
Why are These Brookline Condo Installations Tricky?
When it comes to installing air conditioning in these condos, the floor you’re on makes all the difference. If you’re on the first floor the job is relatively easy. We run a 3″ line to the indoor ductless units through the wall and directly into your home. Similarly, a third-floor condo requires a 3″ line run down through the roof to the ductless indoor AC units, with the assistance (and warranty) of a bonded roofer.
If your condo is on the second floor, however, this presents more of a challenge for running the ductless AC line to your indoor units. Often this results in additional cost for the labor. Sometimes a carpenter is needed to do some detailed finish work and the outdoor lines are certainly longer, using more material.

A Total Comfort Solution for This Brookline Condo
The solution: complete temperature control in every corner of this condo using a multi-zoned Mitsubishi ductless HVAC system.
Based on the homeowner’s wish to have absolute control over the temperature in every part of this condo, we recommended a three head multi-zone solution from Mitsubishi.
The great part about a job like this is that we can run all three heads off the same outdoor unit, which keeps the costs of installation lower.
In this situation we were able to put condenser on the back patio and hide the line in a piece of molding that blends right in with the building’s facade. The result was a seamless install that provides quality heating and cooling all year long.
