This lovely deck-style home in Newton, MA needed additional climate control. Like many people these days, the home office is becoming more important, and the wife was going to be working more and more from home. This meant having the office be comfortable year 'round was important, especially in the summer. They had been relying on window air conditioning units in the living room, office and study, but the units were noisy, and frankly, weren't always making the rooms as comfortable as they could be. On top of that, window units are really inefficient and expensive to run, unlike ductless AC. The last thing you need when working from home is to be spending more money keeping your home comfortable, taking away any cost savings from a reduced commute!

Mitsubishi Ductless - The Perfect Fit

The homeowners contacted NETR and we knew that we could replace the ugly and noisy window units with ductless mini-splits from Mitsubishi that would provide them with the comfort they craved and creating separate zones of heating and cooling throughout the home, which would let them get the comfort they wanted without wasting energy on heating or cooling areas of the home not in use. We were able to design a great ductless HVAC system using Mitsubishi Hyper Heat that delivers efficient heating and cooling for this home office, study and living room while also saving our homeowners money on energy bills. It will make working from home a pleasure any day of the year!

Problem: The Homeowners were working from home, and needed additional comfort for the home office, to make the space more comfortable- and productive- for the wife. In addition, the window units they were using to cool the study and living room weren't doing a great job and cost a fortune to run.  They were looking for a better and more energy efficient option to bring comfort to their home.
Solution: Installed a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat Ductless Unit with three indoor units to provide perfect comfort at the touch of a button to the home office, study and living room. Whether they want to work in the office or elsewhere, they will have the cooling they need in the summer and the ability to add a little heat if they want to in the Winter, delivering perfect comfort at the touch of a button.

Comfort is about humidity as well as temperature. The wife was working from home, and there's nothing worse than getting up from a desk chair in the summer and sticking to the wood because of too much humidity in the house, even if the temperature is manageable. Window air conditioners cool the air, but they don't always do as great a job of circulating it through a space or reducing the humidity, which is so important, especially in a deck house like this one in Newton, MA.

When you spend a good deal of your time at home each day, comfort becomes important. You might spend several hours in the office, followed by a lunch break and spend the afternoon working somewhere else in the house. But there's no need to have to spend money cooling every room for maximum comfort- that just wastes energy! By creating separate zones of A/C, each room can be adjusted as needed, and will rapidly reach the temperature you want with ductless- the air circulates better through a room than with a window unit, and the humidity is controlled- a real blessing when the humidity is high.

NETR suggested the Mitsubishi Hyper Heat ductless system, which brings both cooling and supplemental heat to each new comfort zone- the home office, study and living room. This means when a room gets just a touch cold even on the worst days of winter, our homeowners can add heat just where they need it most- keeping toes and fingers warm. Our homeowners also appreciate the quietness of the Hyper Heat system, which makes taking calls from home a pleasure- they don't have to deal with the loud background noise of window units making conference calls hard to hear!

This family was also able to save money with a Mass Save rebate of $250! Because ductless HVAC ststems are 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 cool their home office, study and living room, making their home the perfect work and home environment!
  • The system will replace noisy and ugly window air conditioners, giving the homeowners their view back, and will allow them to supplement their existing heating system, providing quiet and efficient comfort every day of the year, no matter what Mother Nature dishes out!
  • The energy bills will go down because of the energy efficient technology, summer and winter.
  • No removal or replacement of current HVAC equipment was necessary, except making those window units redundant.
  • $250 rebate was available to home owners, making this solution cost-effective as well!
