The summers in Gloucester, MA, haven’t always been so hot and humid. That’s why many homes in the area are built without central air conditioning systems. However, recent years have left many families struggling to keep their home comfortable through the hottest days of the year.
Adding a central HVAC system to a home that was built without one is an expensive and time-consuming project that these owners did not want to tackle. Instead, they looked into alternatives that required little to no alterations to their house.
These homeowners had decided to try and find relief using window ACs. Unfortunately, the window air conditioners were noisy and left hot and cold spots throughout the house. Additionally, the window AC units are not energy efficient and drove the family’s energy bills through the roof. After seeing what they were paying each month for a cooling solution that was far from adequate, the homeowners knew it was time for a change.
While they were looking for a new solution to their cooling problems, they decided to try and find a system that would be able to offer supplemental heating, as well. The home’s existing oil heating system did a decent job in the winter, but they had noticed that some of the rooms were drafty on the coldest days.
The homeowners eventually decided that a ductless system would be just the right fit for their needs. After reading N.E.T.R., Inc.’s many five-star reviews from previous customers with similar heating and cooling problems, the owners decided to contact us for a consultation.
Problem: The owners of this contemporary home in Gloucester, MA, had no central air conditioning and were relying on window ACs for cooling their home. Additionally, the heating system was leaving hot and cold spots throughout their kitchen and living room.
Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. designed a two-zoned Mitsubishi ductless AC system that will double as supplemental heating for their oil heat in the winter.
After reading the reviews left from our previous customers, the owners of this contemporary home knew that N.E.T.R., Inc. could provide the solution for their house. They were also impressed by our status as the #1 Mitsubishi Electric Elite Diamond Dealer in New England, which allows us to offer extended, 12-year warranties to our customers.
N.E.T.R., Inc. proposed a two-zone Mitsubishi Electric ductless system with both heating and cooling technology. The two indoor air handlers would be mounted on the walls where they could provide optimal airflow throughout the rooms. The outdoor heat pump and condenser unit was needed to transfer the treated air to the indoor units.
The Mitsubishi ductless system was the perfect choice for this home because it requires almost no modifications to the house. The indoor units only need a small hole to be drilled into the wall behind them before they are mounted. This hole allows the technician to pipe a thin tubing through the walls like an electrical wire to connect the indoor AC to the outdoor condenser. The piping is much thinner than the ductwork needed for a standard system, to the family can now enjoy quality air conditioning without invasive renovations.
The living room unit was placed between the chimney and the back wall, where it would provide the best airflow to the room. The kitchen AC unit was installed above the sliding door where it would be out of the way, but highly effective.
After the indoor units were installed, the outdoor air condenser was set up outside the home where it was mounted to the exterior wall. N.E.T.R., Inc. placed the unit where it would be hidden from view and easy to access for repairs or maintenance.
Now, the family is happily enjoying the summer days in the comfort of their home, thanks to the Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Cooling and Heating System and the team at N.E.T.R., Inc. They are also saving money every month on their energy bills, thanks to the energy-efficient technology used in these ductless units. The system is so efficient that each unit only takes the same energy as a light bulb to power, even on the hottest days of the year!
Additionally, this Mitsubishi ductless system doubles as a perfect supplemental heating system for their oil heat. This feature means the family will continue to see lower energy bills throughout the year. Because the Mitsubishi system works as both heating and air conditioning, the family can easily keep their home the perfect temperature during the fall and spring when the weather is continuously fluctuating.
Each of the indoor ductless units operates independently from the other. This design lets the family easily set the temperature to be cooler in the kitchen or adjust for extra heat in the living room. The remote control gives the homeowners the power to change their comfort without leaving the dinner table or getting up from the couch. Furthermore, the Mitsubishi Ductless Cooling and Heating System monitors the room’s humidity and makes adjustments as needed so that the family will enjoy superior comfort.
Another benefit these homeowners will love is that the ductless system is whisper-quiet when it’s on. They won’t have to struggle to talk over a noisy window AC or turn up the volume on the TV during a hot day. Instead, they’ll be able to enjoy a cozy, quiet home that’s just the right temperature.
