West Newton is filled with charming older homes, like this colonial. Our homeowners found during their remodel that they needed to update their HVAC system. Older homes, like this one, usually don’t have duct work, and it would take significant reconstruction to try to install a central heating and cooling system throughout the home.
Finding a system that will provide energy-efficient heating and cooling throughout a home can be a challenge, especially if you are trying to keep costs- both for installation and operation- down.
Options like window air conditioners tie up windows for months out of the year, are inefficient, and costly to run. Installing baseboards or other central heating systems can be expensive as well. So, these homeowners turned to N.E.T.R., Inc. to learn about Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heating ductless systems. These function as both heat pumps and air conditioners, with some of the best energy efficiency on the market.
Better yet, ductless systems are flexible, so you can create different zones of heating and cooling throughout the house. For this home, they needed comfort on every level, from the first floor to the third! There were five bedrooms needing individual heating and cooling comfort, along with the family room and living room on the first floor. After talking to the homeowners, our experts knew we could design a system that would meet their needs every day of the year.
Problem: During renovations of an older colonial home, this family discovered it needed a new HVAC system that would be cost effective, energy efficient, and provide comfort throughout all three floors.
Solution: A multi-zone Mitsubishi ductless mini split system powered by one outdoor condenser and seven indoor units will heat and cool all of the rooms in need. The separate zones allow custom heating and cooling and energy savings year round.
Colonial Style Homes Can Have Modern Comfort
Colonial style homes were first built in the 1700’s in New England, but many homeowners find they don’t want colonial-era heating and cooling in their homes. We’ve had some tough winters lately, so making sure you have an efficient, cost-effective heating system can help keep energy bills down.
In addition, summers have become increasingly hot and humid, and window air conditioners are ineffective and expensive to run, so finding an efficient, cost-effective solution is necessary.
Heating and cooling each floor in a house like this one can be a challenge, but N.E.T.R., Inc. designed a multi-zoned ductless system with seven wall hanging units. Each bedroom now has customized heating and cooling available! Mom & Dad can set their bedroom to the perfect temperature, while each kid can have their bedroom just as warm or cool as they want- any day of the year! Even on the third floor, an area notoriously hard to heat and cool, each bedroom will have its own ductless unit to keep each person perfectly comfortable, winter or summer!
