West Newton is filled with charming older homes, like this Colonial. Our homeowners bought this home and during their remodel, decided they needed to update their HVAC system. Older homes like this one usually don't have duct work, and it would take significant reconstruction to try to install it all throughout the home. Finding a system that will work to provide energy-efficient heating and cooling throughout a home can be a real challenge, especially if you are trying to keep costs- both for installation and operation- down as much as possible.

West Newton heating and air conditioning installation

Options like window air conditioners tie up windows for months out of the year and are inefficient; installing baseboards or other central heating systems can be expensive as well. The homeowners came to NETR to learn about Mitsubushi's excellent hyperheat ductless systems, that work as both heaters and air conditioners, with some of the best energy efficiency on the market.

Better yet, ductless systems are flexible, so you can create different zones of heating  and cooling throughout a home. For this home, they needed comfort on every level, from the first floor to the third! There were 5 bedrooms needing their own comfort, not to mention the family room and living room on the first floor. After talking to our experts, we knew we could design a system that would meet their needs every day of the year.

Problem: Homeowners were renovating a older colonial home and needed a new HVAC system that would be cost effective, energy efficient, and provide comfort throughout the home on all three floors.

Solution: A seven zone Mitsubishi ductless split system powered by one outdoor condenser and seven indoor units will heat and cool the living room and family room on the first floor, and five bedrooms located on the second and third floors of the home. The separate zones will allow the homeowners to customize the heating and cooling they need, just where they need it, adding to additional energy savings!

Colonial Style Homes Can Have Modern Comfort

Colonial style homes were first built in the 1700's in New England, but many homeowners find they don't want colonial-era heating and cooling in their homes! We've had some tough winters lately, so making sure you have an efficient, cost-effective heating system can help keep energy bills down. Summers have become increasingly hot and humid, and window air conditioners can be expensive to run, so finding an efficient, cost- effective solution there is important as well.

Making sure each floor in a house like this one can be a real challenge, but by creating seven separate zones with the wall hanging units, each bedroom will have customized comfort available! Mom & Dad can set their bedroom to the perfect temperature, while each kid can have their bedroom just as warm or cool as they want- any day of the year!  Even on the third floor, an area notoriously hard to heat and cool, each bedroom will have its own comfort system that will keep each person perfectly comfortable, even in the dead of winter or hottest day of summer!

Efficiency Means Savings- and Rebates!

Mitisubishi's hyper heat ductless system extracts heat out of the air down to -13F outside, to provide efficient heating, and will extract the hot air out of your home to provide state of the art cooling in the summer. By choosing to update your home with energy efficient technology like our homeowners did here in West Newton, you can potentially qualify for rebates under the Mass Save and Mass Clean Energy Center (Mass CEC) program.

In fact, this family qualified for a Mass CEC rebate of $2,300 and and Mass Save rebate of $250, saving them a total of $2,550 on this installation! Our homeowners also qualified for a 0% interest for seven years Mass Save Loan, helping to make this upgrade even more affordable!
