The new homeowners knew they were going to spend a significant amount of their time in the great family room, but the old gas wall heater didn’t evenly heat the whole room, and there was no air conditioning at all, making the room pretty uncomfortable.
The homeowners gave us a call here at Compass Heating and Air Conditioning to see what solution we could recommend to keep them comfortable all year long.
Problem: Family room addition has an old natural gas wall heater and no air conditioning. The new homeowners knew this is where they wanted to spend a lot of time, so they wanted to upgrade the comfort and add air conditioning.
Solution: A single zone of Mitsubishi ductless mini-split will provide the family room with year-round comfort and will help save money on energy bills!
When you have an addition, you need to figure out the best ways to heat and cool the space, and often the system set up for the rest of the home doesn’t do a great job. People then rely on solutions like electric baseboard heaters, wood stoves, or wall gas heaters, like this home did. Many of these systems are energy inefficient and don’t distribute the heated air evenly throughout the space, leaving you with hot and cold spots. And of course, none of them provide air conditioning, which is a real problem in our increasingly hot and humid summers.
The indoor units are typically mounted up high on the wall, and the i-see state-of-the-art sensor monitors the entire room, looking for temperature variations. The system is so smart, it can actually tell if you are in the room, and direct the heating or cooling accordingly, making sure you and anyone else in the room is perfectly comfortable. It can also sense when you aren’t in the room and go into energy saving mode, to help reduce the impact on your energy bills as well!
