This lovely colonial-style home in Newton, MA needed additional climate control. The homeowners wanted to convert one of the bedrooms into a music studio, so having great climate control AND noise reduction were key.  The homeowners wanted to make sure the recording they did didn't have the distracting hums, clicks and clacks that go with traditional window air conditioners, or too much noise from fans that are amplified if caught on sound recording equipment.  We knew we had to balance comfort and ambient noise to meet the goals of our client. We were able to design a great system using Mitsubishi Hyperheat that will be able to deliver- quietly- efficient heating and cooling for this great space while also saving our homeowners money on energy bills.

Newton Ma heating and air conditioning

Problem: The Homeowners were converting a bedroom into a music studio, which would require not only ensuring the room had adequate climate controls for instruments and equipment, but was quiet enough to prevent "artifact" noise when they were recording music.
Solution: Installed a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat Ductless Unit to provide additional heating and cooling to supplement their existing gas heat, while providing extra quiet cooling during the Spring and Summer.

Newton Colonial gets efficient HVAC system

Comfort is about noise as well as temperature. Our homeowners wanted to make sure that all of their sound equipment was treated as well as any member of the family, and had the climate control needed to keep their expensive equipment in top working order. Unlike most homeowners who are most concerned about comfort, our homeowners were equally concerned about ambient noise. 

NETR suggested the Mitsubishi hyperheat dutless system, which will bring supplemental heat and air into the new music studio. It provides not only easy controls to maintain the perfect temperature, but it's widely known for being one of the quietest systems available. While most of our customers are suprised and delighted by the quietness of the Hyperheat system, for these homeowners, quiet was the primary feature they required.  They were impressed that after installation, the system generated a mere 19 db of noise- "whisper quiet" they remarked. This system is wall mounted, out of the way of the instruments and recording gear, and circulates the air to keep everything functioning well. 

This family was also able to save money with a rebate of $1,125! Because this is energy efficient technology, there are rebates issued for these systems since they are helping out the environment. There are still rebates available, so if you are interested in this type of energy efficient equipment as well, 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 new music studio, keeping temperatures perfect for instruments and audio equipment.
  • Ambient noise is only 19 db, whisper quiet, making sure comfort doesn't come along with lots of background noise like you have with window air conditioning units.
  • The energy bills will go down because of the energy efficient technology.
  • No removal or replacement of current HVAC equipment was necessary.
  • $1,125 rebate was available to home owners, making this solution cost-effective as well! 


A Great Investment

This kind of installation is going to help our homeowners with a few things. This new unit will allow them to control the temperature in the studio precisely, and it will do so incredibly quietly- necessary for a recording studio, but appreciated by all customers!  Our customers can still using their current system to heat the rest of the house, so this system will act as a supplemental zone for this new studio, ensuring maximum comfort with minimal disruption. No removal of an old system necessary.

This technology will also help save money on energy bills, being that it is an energy efficient solution. The homeowner was also eligible for a $1,125 rebate!
