Melrose, MA colonial home gets a four-zone Mitsubishi ductless AC system.The owners of this quaint colonial home in Melrose, MA were in the middle of renovations and tired of dealing with the home’s lack of a central air conditioning system during the summer months. They were ready for a change. In an attempt to stay cool, they had been using window ACs, but these units proved to be expensive, inefficient, and noisy.

Besides, the window air conditioners required much time to be spent in the spring and fall just installing and removing them from the windows. Not to mention that the family had to give up their window views all summer long to try and stay cool!

Finally, enough was enough, and these homeowners decided it was time to call in the experts.

Solution: N.E.T.R., Inc. installed a five-unit Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning system. The outdoor condenser and four indoor units were used to provide maximum comfort all year long.


The Installation

After some research, they found N.E.T.R., Inc., the #1 Elite Diamond Dealer for Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning units in Boston, MA. Reading our many reviews from previous customers with similar problems convinced these homeowners that our experts could design the perfect solution for their home.

The project manager for this install was Chip, who worked side by side with the homeowners to create a ductless system that would give the even, efficient cooling throughout the home. Ultimately, we designed a five-unit system with an outdoor condenser unit and four indoor units in the rooms that needed the most cooling relief during the summer.

The first two units were installed in the family room and dining room. These wall-mounted ductless air conditioning units were strategically placed in the room so that they could provide the most effective cooling. Although many of the rooms were still under renovation, N.E.T.R., Inc. wanted to ensure that the wall units wouldn’t interfere with the visual appeal of the finished room.

This individualized system will help to save them money on their energy bills over the years and provide the relief they need with the touch of a button.

All the units are controlled by remote, so it’s easy to adjust any room to the perfect temperature. Each unit will also monitor the humidity in the room, to help provide that extra touch of comfort.

In addition to being highly efficient air conditioning systems, these Mitsubishi ductless ACs are also whisper-quiet! Compared to the noisy window units this family had been using, they’ll barely hear the new system running at all. N.E.T.R., Inc. has even installed these kinds of ductless ACs in music studios because of how quietly they run.

Lastly, the outdoor unit was placed on the left side of the house, out of sight but easily accessible. All the indoor units were attached to this unit through the thin piping that was installed instead of invasive ductwork. These pipes are easily threaded through the walls like electrical wiring and are easy to install without damaging the aesthetics of the home.
