Increase Home Value in Charlestown with Mitsubishi Ductless

Charlestown has lots of charming older homes like this one, which have, over the years, relied predominantly on window air conditioners for relief from the hot, humid New England summer. Especially the upstairs. How many of you hit that palpable wall of heat as you walk upstairs from your air-conditioned family room to the unconditioned upstairs hallway? It can take your breath away on the hottest days. 

Best ductless installer in Charlestown

I hate this damn window unit!These homes were built in a time when air conditioning was not a given or not an option. Window a/c units, despite their inconvenience, inefficiency and noise, provided welcome seasonal relief for master bedrooms and living rooms, while basements, if you had one, were usually a cool, if sometimes damp, oasis.

These days most homeowners are converting to a more permanent air conditioning solution that cools their home better and costs less to run. Ductwork was not an option for this young, professional Charlestown couple but neither was noisy, inefficient, ineffective window air conditioners. That's when they called us in.

Problem: The homeowners wanted an energy-efficient system that would cool the second floor of their Charlestown home. They wanted to make an investment that would increase the value of their home, improve their overall level of comfort and save them money on energy bills.
Solution: Using Mitsubishi Mini-split Ductless Units, we designed a three-zone solution that eliminated their hot spots and gave them pinpoint control of the temperatures in all three zones.  From experience in these types of homes, we know this system will save them money on monthly energy bills. With Mitsubishi Electric's 12 year warranty on these units, we know they add long-term real value to their home.

The problem this young family was experiencing was tied to the baked-in challenges (No pun intended, but I'll take it.) that come with cooling an older home of this narrow, deep and tall construction, especially the upstairs. In homes like this, homeowners have two choices if they want to go with central air:
1. Rip out some walls to install ductwork that will likely leak at least 20% if it's not done by a BPI certified contractor.
2. Run your ductwork up against the ceiling or along a wall and box it in with sheet rock.
Window units are noisy and unable to provide adequate air circulation, the main cause of hot and cold spots. When we met to review air conditioning solutions that would work for them, we knew creating multiple zones would allow them to have the pin-point control of heating and cooling they desired, and could allow them to have the comfort they needed, where and when they needed it most.

This sort of permanent solution will also mean the owners will never have to deal with the seasonal hassle of installing, winterizing and maintaining two or three different make, model, age and size of window units, let alone making space to store them all Winter long.

A Great Investment

They are still using their current system to heat, so this ductless install will only supplement their current system, allowing them to make each zone comfortable Summer or Winter, with a touch of a button. They will no longer have to spend so much money heating the large empty areas of the home, and instead, they will comfort right where they need it. 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. And many homeowners in similar circumstances can qualify for rebates!
