3-Zone Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Cooling and Heating Installation
Originally, Mary & Steven had only an electric baseboard and a coal stove to heat their two-story home. In the winter, the couple’s coal stove supplemented the electric baseboard to effectively heat the massive house, but the fact that coal isn’t a clean burning heat source made it difficult to enjoy. During the summer, the couple had no air conditioning system due to the fact that they had no ductwork in their home. After spending a year researching their options, the couple was ready to move forward with their decision: a centralized, ductless heat pump from Goodco.
Once the Good Guys heard Mary & Steven’s concerns and based on the size of their home, the team decided to install a 3-zone Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat Heat Pump. This system can effectually heat the couple’s home while also providing air conditioning without the need to install any expensive ductwork.
Mary & Steven’s two-story home in Port Matilda had an electric baseboard and a coal stove with no air conditioning system. Their electric heat proved to be a challenge in the winter, as baseboard heaters are expensive to run, and they take up valuable floor space in any home. Not to mention, they are inefficient when it comes to heating as they only radiate so far, leaving other areas in the home feeling cold. Using electric heat caused a huge spike in the homeowners’ energy bills during those frigid winter months, which is why they installed a coal stove. The coal stove was used for supplemental heat but this energy source leaves a residue of dirty black soot and isn’t the best for maintaining clean indoor air – an issue for anyone with allergies or asthma.
In the stifling summer heat, Mary & Steven had no way to cool off other than noisy fans for temporary relief that also drove their energy costs through the roof.
In search of a cost effective solution, these homeowners thoroughly vetted and researched HVAC contractors in the Central Pennsylvania region. As the only contractor in the area to install over 1,200 Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Heat Pumps over the past 6 years, Goodco’s expertise and excellent online reviews stood out to them.
After evaluating the size and build of the home, the Good Guys recommended a 3-zone Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat system. It was the perfect solution to solve all of the couple’s concerns, while remaining within their budget. This system also doesn’t require the installation of ductwork, something that is quite expensive to install and most homes don’t have the extra floor space needed to do so.
After careful evaluation of the house layout and air flow, the Good Guys strategically placed the three indoor units in the family’s living room, master bedroom, and baby’s room, creating zones that made sense for the efficient use of the home. Each of the three Mitsubishi Electric can be independently controlled and set to any specific temperature desired.
Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat systems provide the ultimate HVAC solution for heating and cooling for homes without ductwork. Unlike the coal stove and electric baseboard Mary & Steven used during the winter, the Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat System operates efficiently even at temperatures as low as -13°F without the need for backup heat. These systems keep homes warm during the winter months and cool during the summer season, while simultaneously reducing energy bills. Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat systems are ENERGY STAR® certified, making them eligible for local utility rebates. This level of efficiency ultimately cuts energy costs for homeowners, giving them even more savings every month.
Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems offer advanced filtration that silently removes particulates and contaminants from the air. This system provides a huge advantage for homeowners with asthma and allergies!
As always with ductless system installations, slim duct was also placed on the outside of the home running refrigerant piping from the outdoor unit to the indoor units. Slim duct is available in a variety of different shades so that the homeowners can choose which color best blends in with the exterior of their home.
