We recently met with a customer who was in the process of remodeling a very large, unconditioned room. This room was located off the back of their home and led out to a beautiful deck. The challenge was making the room a great space where their family and friends could gather and visit all year around. However, since the room will not be in use constantly, they wanted a system that could be controlled separately from the main part of the home. They also were concerned about the operating costs of an additional heating and cooling system and additional construction cost to the main part of the home, in order to get new ductwork into the space. Lastly, the space for an additional outdoor unit was limited, due to the deck.
After going over different solutions with the customers, it was decided the best solution for them was to install a Mitsubishi ductless system in the room. The Mitsubishi system checked all the boxes:
1. The Mitsubishi system would operate separately from the main home’s heating and cooling system.
2. No additional construction on the main part of the home was needed.
3. The efficiency of a properly sized Mitsubishi system is second to none.
4. With the Mitsubishi system proposed, we can connect numerous wall-mounted indoor units to one outdoor unit.
Given the room size and ceiling height, two indoor wall-mounted units were needed. The units were installed up high on the wall, near the ceiling. Each unit is controlled with a separate remote control, so each unit’s temperature can be set separately, giving them the most optimal comfort.
Finally, since the outdoor space was limited, by using this specific Mitsubishi system, we were able to connect the two indoor units to one outdoor unit. Due to space issues, the outdoor unit needed to be installed near the deck and the customer was concerned about the noise of the unit. However with the Mitsubishi’s Whisper Quiet technology, we were able to put their concerns at ease.
If you are having issues heating or cooling an area in your home, such as an addition, bedroom, an entire 2nd story, or even a garage, a Mitsubishi system may be the perfect solution.
