Homes like this Split-level ranch in Beverly, MA have sunrooms and other additions that can be hard to heat and cool. Sunrooms are designed with lots of windows and to help bring light into a home. All that glass can also make the room like a greenhouse- trapping heat in the summer, and allowing in a lot of cold in the winter. This can make an inviting space uncomfortable a lot of the time, and can cause these rooms to be underused, which is a shame because they add so much light and beauty. Sometimes homeowners will try window air conditioners which tend to be really noisy, or space heaters to help balance temperatures. Our homeowners in Beverly got tired of this problem and decided to find a more permanent solution that would allow them to enjoy their sunroom every day of the year.

Beverly sunroom heating and air conditioning installation

Problem: Our homeowners had a sunroom that was hard to both heat and cool.  It was too hot during the day and in summer months, and too cold to enjoy during winter. They weren't getting the use out of the space because of the comfort problems.
Solution: Installed a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat Ductless Unit to allow pinpoint control of the temperature in their sunroom, ensuring comfort 365 days a year.

The problem this family was having was making sure their sunroom was comfortable. Split-level ranch and raised ranch homes like this one can be a challenge to heat and cool in general. Making sure air circulates well and there aren't hot spots and cold spots takes an innovative solution to ensure comfort in the winter and summer. The sunroom in this home was a great example of this- it just never seemed to be the right temperature.Their existing unit, seen on the right, wasn't getting the job done to sufficiently heat the home, and the family needed something to keep the home more comfortable.  

Our Solution: By adding a Mitsubishi Hyper-heat ductless system (seen on the right), our family will be able to enjoy their sunroom every day of the year. These units work as a/c and as heaters, and help control humidity as well, improving the overall air quality wherever they are installed!  The sunroom will now be cool and breezy even on the hottest days of summer, and you won't be able to find a chill anywhere come winter. Instead of having to crank up the heat to make sure the sunroom is warm, this newly created zone will take the burden off of the main heating system, and no new radiators or ductwork was necessary! This supplemental heat pump will be able to work right alongside their existing system in tandem, and may even end up reducing their overall heating bills this winter!

This family was also able to save money with a rebate of $1,125! Because this is energy efficient technology, rebates are available for these systems since they are helping out the environment. Additionally, the warranties on the systems has recently been extended to twelve years, giving homeowners peace of mind as well as increased comfort in their homes.

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. 

To recap the key points of this particular home and our solution:

  • The home owners now have a comfortable, quiet solution to cool their sunroom and provide heat in the winter in their split-level ranch home, making it comfortable all year long.
  • Their energy bills will likely go down because of the energy efficient technology.
  • No removal or replacement of existing equipment was necessary, and the new system is likely to make sure the existing system has to work less hard to heat and cool the rest of the home.
  • $1,125 rebate was available to home owners to help reduce initial costs, along with the money they will save due to smaller energy bills.

A Great Investment

This kind of installation is going to help this family with a few things. They are still using their current system to heat, so this ductless install will only supplement their current system to make the sunroom completely comfortable. No removal of an old system necessary. This permanent solution will be quiet and efficient, a big improvement over window air conditioners or space heaters that many homeowners might otherwise rely on.

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!
