One of the most common problems we see with Split level homes like this one in Burlington, MA is that they don't have balanced temperatures throughout the house. Split level homes like this one and others in the area can be especially challenging to heat and cool. One room is too cold while another is too hot, and the air doesn't always seem to circulate well to distributed heat and cooling evenly. There is no way to come to some sort of happy medium. As a result, the only way to make the cold rooms warm is to crank up the heat, causing other rooms to become too hot and it's costly to raise the temperature in all rooms, when you only need a touch of warmth in a particular area. That was the situation for this couple, despite the fact they were already using radiant floor heating.

The problem this family was having was heating and cooling all levels of their split level home. The radiant floor heating system they were using to heat the family room was great, but it didn't provide any cooling options in summer, and the homeowners still felt cold in winter, even though their feet were toasty warm with the floor heating.

Our Solution: By adding a Mitsubishi ductless system, we were able to create a great zone of comfort for them in their family room, available all with the touch of a button on the remote control. This couple can now be ensured comfort 365 days a year.

While the radiant floor heating did a good job in the Winter, it didn't provide any cooling at all, and by adding a ductless system, the homeowners will get all the cooling and additional heating they need. Due to the efficiency of the HyperHeat system, the homeowners will also enjoy cost savings year-round. There was no need to replace their current system at all- the ductless will work in conjunction with the current system to provide enhanced comfort, every day of the year.
