Supplementing a Wood Stove with a Ductless Mini Split Heat Pump for This Winchester Home

Uneven heating and cooling can make some areas of a home less popular, and that’s a shame, especially when it comes to areas like a family room, which is meant for folks to get together and spend time as a family. This is a common problem with bonus rooms, finished basements or attics, or a lower level family room like the one in this Winchester, MA home. The homeowners had a pellet stove they were using, but they found it was providing inconsistent heat and had significant maintenance issues. The pellet stove was difficult and timing consuming to clean, hauling pellets was a burden, and it was becoming more and more expensive to heat the home in this manner.

Problem: The pellet stove used to heat the lower level wasn’t doing its job and was difficult and time consuming to maintain, as well as expensive. The living area upstairs also wasn’t getting the heat needed, so something needed to change.
Solution: Installed two Mitsubishi Electric Heat ductless wall-mounted units, one in the living area and one in the lower level family room. This will provide hassle-free heating and cooling, all year round, without the burden of pellets. In addition, the new system is more efficient, providing significant ongoing energy cost savings.
