Case Study

Mitsubishi Ductless Installation In Madison CT

Overview

The homeowner in this project noticed that their home was not as comfortable as it should have been. They were paying a small fortune by using their window AC units. One room would feel hot, and another room would feel cold.

They called Wilcox Energy and scheduled a free, in-home consultation.

One of our experienced heating and cooling technicians recommended that they install a Mitsubishi ductless system in their Madison, CT home.

Madison Mitsubishi Ductless Installation

Problem:

After many years of use, our clients decided that window air conditioning units were noisy, expensive to use, and their house still felt hot and sticky. Our homeowners wanted a better solution to combat the heat.

Solution:

Wilcox Energy installed two energy efficient Mitsubishi ductless outdoor condensers (MXZ-4C36NA2-U1 and MXZ-3C30NA2-U1) and 5 Mitsubishi ductless indoor units (two-MSZ-GL06NA-U1, two- MSZ-GL12NA-U1, one MSZ-GL18NA-U1) in their home.

Mitsubishi Ductless Heat Pumps In Madison CT

The ductless units that Wilcox Energy installed in this customer’s home are some of the best ductless heat pumps available on today’s market.

They are capable of meeting all of the heating and cooling demands that this family has. Since these ductless units are extraordinarily energy efficient, this client will not have to pay a fortune for their comfort. Also, they provide a high level of comfort since they offer zoned heating and cooling.

These units have sophisticated filtrations systems where they improve the indoor air quality of the home. This feature is a great option for those who suffer from respiratory illnesses and allergies. Even better, they can experience all of this without the inconvenience and expense of installing ductwork into their home.

Mitsubishi Ductless Air Handlers: Indoor Units

The indoor units that Wilcox Energy installed offer a variety of features. They are wall-mounted, and, as mentioned above, they can work in multi-zone or single zone setups.

Its design allows for noiseless operation. Our homeowner won’t even know that they are on which is quite a contrast compared to the window units that they were using. Mitsubishi offers a 5-year warranty on parts but with registration and installation by a Mitsubishi contractor, you can receive an extended 10-year warranty.

The Mitsubishi MSZ-GL06NA-U1 air handlers that we installed have many operating modes. This unit has different fan speeds with multiple airflow directions. It has 24.6 SEER rating and a 12.8 HSPF, making this model very energy efficient. It is Energy Star qualified. The two Mitsubishi MZ-GL12NA that we installed offer many different benefits as well. It has a 23.1 SEER rating and is Energy Star qualified. Also, it comes with 5 different fan speeds and inverter technology. It has a 24-hour timer and features various operating modes. This unit allows for a high level of comfort while performing in a very energy efficient manner. The MSZ-GL18NA-U1 that we installed offers similar features but has a 20.5 SEER rating with an 11.2 HSPF.

  • Sophisticated Filtration System: Mitsubishi ductless heat pumps have sophisticated filtration systems. They have a hybrid catechin deodorizing filter. This enzyme-based filter helps reduce and remove allergens and other indoor air pollutants. It traps them and breaks them down.
  • Hot Start: This feature prevents the fan from operating until the heat exchanger is warm, preventing cold drafts.
  • Econo Cool Setting: This feature gives you the option to improve the energy efficiency of your unit since it allows you to adjust the cooling set points. By swinging the horizontal vanes, you can enhance your comfort by pointing the cooled air where you want it to go.
  • Dehumidification Options: The unit features a dry mode. The dry mode ensures that the coil’s temperature is below the dew point of the air, removing any unwanted moisture. It improves comfort, prevents mold growth, and prevents property damage.

Thinking Of Installing A Window AC For Your Madison CT Home?

If you are thinking about buying a window AC, you should reconsider this decision.

These devices come with some inconveniences that you will regret later on. Now, the initial cost of the window AC is quite low and this why many people are tempted to buy these products. However, the bad news is that this “cheap” air conditioner will cost you more in the long run. Your energy bills will hit the roof, and you will experience problems with indoor air quality. Below are some reasons you should avoid buying the window air conditioner.

Less Security

When you install a window air conditioner in your home, you are unwittingly inviting a burglar to burgle the house. Many criminals know that the window AC is a weak link in your home security system. Intruders can quickly remove the window AC and gain entrance into your home from the space where the air conditioner was. If you want peace and security in your home, you should not install the window AC. In fact, your best bet is the ductless mini split system.

Loss Of Natural Light

When you install the window AC, it blocks any natural light from entering the room. Also, you cannot have access to fresh air when the temperature is cool and nice outside. Another disadvantage of the window AC is that you have to remove this unit when the weather gets cold. Removing and storing these units every fall is a significant inconvenience.

Limited Cooling Space

As a cooling system, the window AC comes with some severe limitations. With this system, you can only cool one room at a time. Unless you are planning to install one in every room, the window AC is not convenient for your home. On the other hand, the ductless system is very efficient because you can create cooling zones in the house. You can even set different temperatures for different parts of the home. This option gives you convenience and an excellent cooling experience.

Noise

One of the worst things about the window air conditioner is that it is noisy. This cooling system cannot function without making quite a bit of noise. Depending on the system you are using, the sound may be a continuous rumble or a low growl. If you have a window system installed in your bedroom, you may not always get a night’s sleep. To enjoy an air conditioning home without the inconvenience of constant background noise, invest in the ductless AC. It is an excellent cooling system that performs quietly and effectively.

The ductless air conditioning system is your best choice because it offers you many benefits. This system comes with a high-quality filtration system, so you enjoy clean air. Also, the compressor is outdoors, so noise is not an issue if you are using this system. If you want better comfort, more effective cooling, and lower energy bills, the ductless AC is the way to go.

Review of Wilcox Energy

Having just purchased our home and being completely overwhelmed, Julie has been amazing to work with to help sort out what we need to be doing with our HVAC systems in the home. She’s been a great resource and friendly guide throughout our process of getting up to speed. But the real kudos go to her and Greg helping to save our Memorial Day Weekend plans!! Our pool company opened the pool for us for the weekend so we could celebrate our anniversary and our house purchase but the pool heater conked out and wouldn’t work and the temp of the pool water was 69 degrees, unswimmable for anyone not a polar bear. Julie got Greg on the scene quickly and he very persistently worked to rectify the problem and got our heater working so that the kids didn’t kill me for bait and switching them on the pool opening! The pool was the highlight of our weekend (besides the Memorial Day celebration itself on Monday honoring our country’s heroes) and we were singing Julie and Greg’s praises all weekend for sprinting into action at a time that most people are trying to slide out the door to start their own weekends! It was an amazing save and one we truly appreciated and will never forget! Thanks, guys, you made believers out of us and we’re looking forward to working with Team Wilcox going forward!
