boston air conditioningThis Three family home in South Boston had a common problem: They were using window air conditioning units and fans to try to stay cool in the summer, and the family was still uncomfortable.

Window units can seem like a good idea for homes without central air- you can get one for each room you want to stay cool, and turn them on and off as needed. But window units come with downsides as well. They take up your windows for a good portion of the year. They are a pain to install and then store for Winter. Worst of all, they are really inefficient and cost a fortune to run. Many of them also have trouble keeping up with the heat, and if you turned them off to try to save money when you leave for work in the morning, it can take a long time for them to get your home comfortable once you get home at the end of the day.

Our homeowners were looking for a better solution that would keep the family comfortable, and not break the bank to operate even in the hottest weather. They wanted an energy efficient solution, and they especially wanted their bedroom to be more comfortable so they could sleep comfortably and not wake up feeling sweaty and cranky.


Problem: The family was looking for a better solution to cool their three family home in South Boston- the window a/c and fans they were using were leaving them sweaty and uncomfortable- and they were expensive to run!

Solution: We installed two zones of Mitsubishi Ductless air conditioning to ensure this family had the year 'round comfort they needed while saving money on energy bills, even on the hottest day of the year!


When our homeowners called us, they had done their homework and knew they were interested in Mitsubishi ductless based on its online reviews for being cost-effective and energy efficient. They also had read our reviews and saw all of our experience with homes like theirs. That's why we're an elite Diamond Dealer and the #1 dealer for Mitsubishi Ductless in New England- we have such extensive experience throughout the area, that we can offer a full 12 year warranty for all of our installations!

boston air conditioningDuctless air conditioning systems consist of two main parts- an outdoor condenser unit, and indoor cassettes, which are usually wall mounted, but there are floor units available as well. One outdoor condenser can support several indoor units, and each unit can still be controlled independently, allowing you to create separate zones of comfort throughout your home as needed. We knew that we could help our homeowners get comfortable with two zones of ductless, by placing one indoor unit in the dining room, and another in the bedroom

Each indoor cassette is controlled by its own remote, so the temperature can be set to whatever you want at the touch of a button. The units monitor both the temperature and the humidity throughout the space, and make adjustments as needed to keep it perfectly comfortable. They also do a great job of distributing the cool air throughout the space, making sure you don't get the hot and cold spots that are so common with window units, and had this family using fans alongside window units to try to keep the rooms comfortable!

The second cassette was installed in their dining room area, which will keep the main living area of the home comfortable throughout, and no one will have to raise their voices to be heard over the A/C ever again!

Mitsubishi Ductless systems use inverter technology, which allows the units to use just the amount of energy necessary to keep a room comfortable, and this helps save energy. Additionally, each of the units are individually controlled, allowing the family to turn off the a/c in the bedroom, for example, while they are in the rest of the home, and likewise change the temperature in the dining room to use less energy at night, further increasing efficiency and reducing energy bills- something every homeowner can appreciate.

As a bonus, Mitsubishi ductless units like these are essentially heat pumps, and can also work as heaters. This means that our homeowners will be able to add just that touch of heat they may want on frosty fall mornings or when they come home at night, without having to crank up the heat for the whole home in order to get comfortable. This means the family will be able to be perfectly comfortable year-round with this installation, even if it gets to be -13F outside!
