Waltham-colonial-ductless-cooling.jpgWaltham has a rich history as a major contributor to the American Industrial Revolution, and it's home to both Brandeis University and Bently University. Colonial homes like this one were built before ductwork and central heat and air were the norm, so many of these homes have been relying on window a/c units to try to keep cool during our hot and humid summers. 

Our homeowners were looking to keep their first floor home office cool, as well as their bedroom. Like many folks in the area, the home office has become a space where our homeowners were spending more time, including telecommuting some days into the office. When the office was hot and uncomfortable, the homeowners really noticed that their productivity suffered. The window units didn't do a great job of circulating air around the room, and they also blocked up a window and chewed up sunlight for half the year!

Our homeowners also wanted to be able to sleep better at night, when the bedroom always seemed just a touch too warm in the summer and a touch too cold in the Winter.  They were looking for an energy-efficient solution that would end the yearly battle with window a/c units and also be cost-effective- why spend all the money you save on commuting on energy bills instead?


Problem: The homeowners needed additional comfort for their master bedroom and home office- the window a/c units weren't cutting it, and they were miserable. They wanted to make sure they got a reliable, cost-effective solution that would help them sleep better at night and  work better during the day!

Solution: Two zones of Mitsuibishi's ductless units now provide world class air conditioning, ensuring our homeowners in Waltham won't be kept up nights worrying about their energy bills. They can now work efficiently at home and sleep like a baby in perfect comfort throughout the first floor of their home.


Our homeowners gave us a call at NETR based on our great online reviews and experience. As Diamond Contractors, we have the expertise and experience installing ductless throughout the greater Boston area in homes of every type with installations ranging from a single ductless module to cool off a sun room, to installing a whole home solution to provide zoned comfort in every room. We knew that a two zone solution for the office and bedroom would provide the homeowners with the comfort they needed most at a price they could afford.

waltham-home-office-zoned-cooling.jpgMitsubishi ductless units have an outdoor heat pump unit that connects to indoor units that sit up on the wall, out of the way. The units are controlled separately by a remote control, allowing you to adjust the temperature just where you need it. The units work both as air conditioners and as heaters, and are some of the most efficient and cost-effective solutions on the market.  Their energy efficiency is so great that our homeowners qualified for a Mass Save rebate of $250 and a Mass CEC rebate of $1,489.00 for a net rebate of $1,739, helping make the installation of these two units and increased comfort even more affordable!

The units will allow this family to have the comfort they crave, especially during the summer, while also giving them the option of adding heat when they need it.  Rather than firing up the heating system for the whole home, the homeowners can now just add a touch of heat at the touch of a button on chilly Spring or Fall days, or use it to take the chill off the  bedroom on the coldest days of the year, as well as enjoy world-class comfort with lower energy costs than they were paying running their window units all the time.

As a result, we were able to provide this family with a two-zoned solution, giving them they comfort they needed while saving them money on the installation, as well as on energy every single month. Plus, there's no more wrangling with window units twice a year!

That's a solution that gives modern comfort to older, charming colonial homes like this one, and we know we can provide you with a similar solution, whether you live in Waltham or Newton, The North Shore or in the City- we have the experience and expertise to help you achieve the comfort you need.
