Billerica has a reputation for its charming neighborhoods with colonial-style homes like this one. Many of them use baseboard heat, and many do not have central air conditioning. As a result, homeowners, like this one, often rely on noisy and energy-hogging window air conditioners to try to cool their homes. When our homeowners asked us to see what we could do to make their home more comfortable, especially in summer, we knew that having a ductless system would give them the maximum comfort at an affordable price. By using a Mitsubishi Hyperheat multi-zone system, we were able to deliver maximum cooling, effectively replacing six separate window air conditioners. Not only will our homeowners save money on energy, they now have a permanent solution for heating and cooling that no longer requires the seasonal back-breaking work of installing and uninstalling window units.

Problem: This lovely Colonial in the Pinehurst neighborhood in Billerica was relying on window air conditioners to try to cool their home, but the units were inefficient, noisy, and required twice- yearly installation and removal with the change of the seasons. On top of that the window units were ineffective at providing adequate cooling throughout the house, causing discomfort and frustration for our homeowners.

Solution: We installed a five-zone Mitsubishi Hyper Heat Ductless system that will provide cooling and heating as needed throughout the home, providing quiet year'round comfort at the touch of a button. In addition, the homeowners will have pinpoint control over their heating and cooling, allowing each area of the home to maximize comfort as needed.

It's frustrating to go from room to room in a home, when each room seems to have its own climate.

Our homeowners wanted to make sure each bedroom could control the temperature independently, and the downstairs family room and living room areas would be equally comfortable, summer or winter.  The window units they were using weren't getting the job done.  The heavy, bulky window units were expensive to run, as well as painful to install in the Spring and put away in the Fall, especially when temperatures seem to very so much- when is the perfect time to move all those units in and out of windows?

The family uses gas-fired hot water radiator baseboards for heat, like so many homes in the area.  With the new five zone Mitsubishi HyperHeat heat pump system, they will have quiet comfort every day of the year. In Spring and Summer, a mere touch of a button will deliver cool air as needed. Just as easily, the heat pump can also deliver heat down to -13 F to add additional warmth as needed in any of the zones exactly when its needed, rather than waiting for a considerable time period before a thermostat nudge finally delivers the comfort sought. This allowed the homeowners to supplement their existing system without requiring the expense of removing the old, and adding significant control and comfort throughout their home.

Because this is energy efficient technology, there are rebates issued for these systems since they are helping out the environment through the Mass Save program. There are still rebates available, so if you are interested in this type of energy efficient equipment, be sure to ask your comfort specialist about what sort of rebates would apply. 

So just to recap the key points of this particular home:

  • The home owners now have a comfortable, quiet solution to heat their whole home, with five zones to allow pinpoint control and comfort to preference in all areas of the home.
  • Their energy bills will go down because of the energy efficient technology, while increasing comfort.
  • No removal of the traditional heating system was needed, and they will no longer need those six bulky, heavy and noisy window air conditioning units! 
  • Best of All, $3,150 in rebate money was available to home owners! Along with low-cost financing, they are only paying $235 a month to cover the installation of this whole-home solution.  

A Great Investment

This kind of installation is going to help our homeowners immensely. They will no longer have to go through the twice-yearly ritual of installing and removing window air conditioning units, or worry about their maintenance and storage. With a touch of a button on a remote control, they will be able to have the heating or cooling they desire, on demand, room by room. Every person will be able to customize the temperature according to their needs, and also achieve additional cost savings by not heating or cooling rooms when not in use. The house is able to be completely comfortable, at all times.

This technology will also help save money on energy bills, as an energy efficient solution. The homeowner was also eligible for a $3,150 rebate!
