This terrific brick home in Villa Park was built in 1928. Like most homes that age, it relies on a hot water boiler and radiators for heat, but there is no air conditioning or ductwork in the home. As a result, the homeowners were relying on bulky, noisy window air conditioners to try to keep cool. Not only were the air conditioners ugly, they took up windows for a good portion of the year, and were a pain to install in the Spring and then store in the Fall. They are expensive to run- causing huge spikes in energy bills during hot weather! The homeowner was looking for a reprieve from the noisy window AC units, especially in her master bedroom, and to get rid of the hassle of installing and storing those heavy window AC units once and for all.
Our homeowner gave us a call at Compass Heating and Air Conditioning, after learning that Mitsubishi Ductless heating and air conditioning systems might work for a home without ductwork. For a home like this, adding ductwork would be incredibly expensive and destroy many of the great architectural features homeowners love.
Problem: Our homeowner was tired of the Window Air Conditioner ritual- Installing them in the Spring, and wasting a whole weekend to store them in the Fall, only to be surprised by a heat wave that left her sweaty and unhappy. She wanted a better, more efficient way to cool her home, without costing a fortune to run.
Solution: 3 zones of Mitsubishi Ductless air conditioning, one for the master bedroom, 2nd floor hallway and dining room will ensure our homeowner has the cooling comfort she wants throughout her home, as well as supplemental heating for Spring and Fall when you need just a touch of heat. Increased efficiency will also help reduce energy bills.
When we came out to see this home, we knew right away that Mitsubishi ductless would be a great solution to give our homeowner the comfort she craved, while also reducing her energy bills all year long!
