Boston, like most of New England, is filled with older homes, like this one in Allston. And while homes like this are full of great architectural features, most were built during a time when "air conditioning" was a luxury reserved for the well-to-do. Heating and cooling older homes can be expensive, especially when you try to achieve balanced temperatures throughout the house. One room is too cold. Another is too hot, resulting in a never-ending battle for control of the thermostat. The only way to make those cold rooms warm is to crank up the heat, causing other rooms to become too hot, and costing extra money on energy bills. That was the situation we were brought in to solve for this family in Allston, MA.

The problem this family was having was wasting money on heating and cooling a larger older home. In this type of home, the owners were spending a fortune trying to get comfort throughout the house, and like in most homes, only a few areas are used all the time. When we talked about solutions that would work for them, we knew creating several zones would allow them to have the pin-point, push button control of heating and cooling they desired, without disrupting the great architectural features in the home, like the post & beam features you can see to the right. NETR suggested that they install a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat Ductless Units, which could be create zones of comfort, right where they were needed most

The wall units blend in to the walls, making them unobstrusive as they deliver unparalleled comfort to this hard to heat and cool home. Ductless units supply heating and cooling on demand from a remote control, providing quiet comfort any day of the year, just what our Homeowners wanted.

The ductless system also supplements their current heating system, meaning no expensive removal of the old system was necessary. In fact, by adding the ductless system to their home, they will be able to minimize the use of their existing system, and extend its life.
