The homeowners in Needham, MA loved the character and charm of their ranch-style home; however, they were faced with a significant dilemma. The house’s oil heating system kept most of the rooms toasty warm in the winter — except for the master bedroom and the dining room. These two rooms felt drafty and never stayed warm enough for the family’s comfort.
Additionally, the home did not have central air conditioning, so summer months were miserable. Our homeowners did not want to have to rely on window air conditioners for their air conditioning. Instead, they knew they needed a more permanent solution, that’s why they called N.E.T.R., Inc.
Problem: The owners of this ranch-style home in Needham, MA were suffering with insufficient heating from their oil heat system and a lack of AC. The rooms affected the most were the master bedroom and the dining room.
Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. installed a Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling system using a ductless mini-split design to provide perfect comfort all year long.
The Benefits of Mitsubishi Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems
The family researched their options to find the best solution to their heating and cooling needs. Finally, they came upon N.E.T.R., Inc., and read some of the reviews from previous happy customers in Boston and the surrounding areas. The homeowners knew that our status as Mitsubishi Electric Elite Diamond Dealers meant that we could design a system for their home that would meet their needs.
At N.E.T.R., Inc., we stand behind our products to ensure complete customer satisfaction. That’s why Paul Varonakis, the project manager for this installation, met with the family in person to discuss their options. He suggested implementing a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split system with both heating and cooling capabilities. The two-zoned ductless system would provide supplemental heat to the existing oil heat system and function as the AC for these rooms in the summer.
This installation required two indoor air handling units and a single outdoor condenser. The outdoor unit functions as a heat pump, which transfers hot air out in the summer and cold air out in the winter. These highly efficient Mitsubishi heat pump units have been proven to provide excellent heating even in temperatures as cold as -13 degrees!
The indoor units were placed in the master bedroom and the dining room. The owners chose a floor unit for their dining room, which blended with the surroundings best, and a wall-mounted ductless unit for the master bedroom. Both ductless units were installed to provide maximum air circulation throughout the space.
After the units were installed, our experts ran the tubing used to transfer the air from the outdoor condenser to the indoor units. This tubing does not require massive renovation or invasive construction because it can be run through the wall like electrical wiring. This feature saved the owners on installation costs and ensured they did not have to change the aesthetic of their home by adding bulky ductwork.
Now, the family will be able to enjoy the master bedroom and dining room at the perfect temperature all year long. Each of the indoor AC units function entirely independently from one another. This feature allows the owners to keep the dining room toasty without affecting the temperature in the master bedroom..
Ductless Energy Efficiency
In addition to being a convenient solution for supplemental heating and cooling, the Mitsubishi ductless system is highly energy efficient. These units are so efficient that many homeowners qualify for rebates just for improving their heating and air conditioning with ductless. In this case, the owners earned $215 from the Mass Save program for equipping their home with an environmentally friendly option.
