Bringing Year Round Comfort for this Brownstone Condo

A lot of traditional Brownstone buildings in Boston have condominiums. The whole building has a heating system, but sometimes, it doesn't serve every homeowner the comfort they want. This was the case for the owner of one of the units in this Brownstone building in Boston. While electric heat was included in the condo fee, our homeowner never felt adequately warm in her space. When she called us, we knew that we could help her get the comfort she craved, independent of the heating system serving the whole building.

Heating a Boston Brownstone

Problem: The existing heating system serving the whole building was leaving our homeowner in the cold. The uneven heating, although included in the condo fee, still left our owner unhappy and looking for other solutions to make her home a warm and inviting space.
Solution: A single zone Mitsubishi ductless split system powered by an outdoor condenser and a single wall-mounted head will provide our homeowner with the heating comfort she craves, and also will provide air conditioning in the summer when needed, giving her year round comfort.

 A Good Investment

This is a brand new installation, and the homeowner will now be paying for additional heat, but she will finally be able to control the temperature in her home to suit her needs. Since Mitsubishi's hyper heat system is one of the most efficient systems available, most homeowners find their energy bills go down when adding ductless. For our condo owner, we are confident that her new heating bills will be small, especially when compared with more dangerous options, like space heaters.

In addition, ductless units also provide air conditioning in the summer! Rather than relying on window units, our homeowner will also get the benefit of an extra burst of cool air, no matter what heat Mother Nature dishes out. That's an extra benefit everyone in our area can appreciate!

Our homeowner also qualified for a $625 Mass CEC and a $500 Mass Save rebate by installing this efficient technology!  This means she received a total of $1125 towards the price of the unit, and will be able to achieve comfort every day of the year as a result, which is sure to enhance the eventual resale value of her Condo by choosing some of the best heating and air conditioning technology available to the residential market.

The warranty on all qualifying systems installed after April 1, 2015 has recently been extended to 12 years! Click here to see the details.

The ideal air conditioning solution for a Boston Brownstone of any size

Brownstones are located throughout the City- sometimes they are single family homes, and other times, they are like this multi-family condo. NETR has the experience in all sorts of brownstone installations to meet the needs of homeowners like this one.

Our owner needed to be able to control the heat in her unit, and a single head Mitsubishi Hyper Heat unit would do wonders. We were able to install the unit in her kitchen, providing heat and air circulation throughout her home, while being able to send the wiring through her bathroom and installing the outside unit right under the fire escape stairs- while not interfering with safety.

As you can see from the picture below, the unit is placed right under the stairs, but not in the way of exit and safety- making it a perfect place to tuck away the outdoor unit while minimizing any impact on neighbors or the outside of the building.

Installation With Little Visual Impact

We were able to tuck the outdoor unit conveniently under the fire escape stairs, avoiding any additional visual clutter to the building while still maximizing our homeowner's needs.
