The homeowners of this beautiful older home in Beverly, MA, loved the quaint features and unique architecture that come with any older homes. They did not, however, like the problems they faced every year trying to heat and cool their home adequately. Their hot water oil heat system provided enough heat to take the edge off in the winter, but while some rooms were comfortable, others were frigid no matter how long the heat ran.
In the summertime, the bedroom above the garage became an oven since it had not been equipped with an air conditioning system. Because of the lack of AC, the owners had to install window air conditioning units every spring and remove them every fall to try and stay comfortable during the summer. If that wasn’t enough, the window ACs were loud, blocked their windows, and ran the energy bill up every summer.
Finally, this family had enough, and they decided to look for options for supplemental heating and air conditioning. During their search, they found that N.E.T.R., Inc. is the #1 Elite Diamond Dealer for Mitsubishi ductless in Boston, MA. These homeowners read some of the fantastic reviews left by previous customers, and they knew that our experts would be able to design the perfect ductless system for their needs.
Problem: The hot water oil heating system in this older, 1930’s home was not providing enough warmth in the winter, and the bedroom above the garage had no central AC, so the owners were forced to use window air conditioners to keep cool in the summer. This solution was an expensive, inefficient system, and they knew there had to be a better way.
Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. installed a single, indoor, ductless mini split unit for supplemental heating in the winter and world-class air conditioning in the summer. This solution will keep the family comfortable all year long and help to reduce their energy bills by providing more efficient heating and air conditioning than their old methods.
Paul Varonakis was the project manager for this installation. He met with the owners to discuss possible solutions for their heating and cooling problems. In the end, he advised that they get a single, Mitsubishi ductless mini-split AC with an outdoor condenser and heat pump. This setup will allow supplemental heating in the winter through the Mitsubishi Electric ductless heat pump and unmatched cooling comfort for the bedroom in the summer.
The indoor floor mounted ductless AC unit was installed in the bedroom above the garage. This single unit would replace the window AC units the family had been using and provide heating in the winter, as well. Because the family chose a ductless system, no construction was needed to add ductwork to the home. Instead, thin piping for the indoor AC was run through the walls, like electrical wire, to the outdoor condenser. This system allowed the family to find the relief they craved without the need for an extensive renovation project.
The Mitsubishi ductless AC is controlled with a single remote so that the owners can adjust the temperature with the press of a button from the comfort of their bed. This Mitsubishi ductless mini split system will also monitor the humidity of the room and adjust accordingly, so the family will never have to spend another summer feeling sticky and hot in their own home.
Not only will this family benefit from the outstanding heating and air conditioning throughout the year, but they will see an improvement in their energy bills, as well. The Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini split systems are some of the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning solutions available, so they often provide enormous savings for homeowners who have them installed, even when it is just for supplemental heating or cooling.
These AC units are so efficient that many homeowners qualify for rebates through programs like Mass Save and Mass CEC just for having the Mitsubishi ductless system installed. This family was eligible for $500 from Mass Save and $1500 from Mass CEC to help with the installation cost of their ductless system.
Another great benefit to the ductless heating and cooling solutions provided by N.E.T.R., Inc. is that they are easy to expand on in the future. Should the family ever decide that they need a little extra air conditioning in the kitchen or more heating in the family room, they simply must call N.E.T.R., Inc. and have the new units installed and connected to the existing outdoor condenser and heat pump. It’s that easy!
