As the weather continues to heat up during the summer, you want to do everything you can to keep your house cool. But for some people, no matter what they do, it seems like it’s difficult to keep their house at the ideal temperature while still operating their air conditioning system efficiently.
A central HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system isn’t always the most efficient way to heat and cool your home. The farther that cool air has to travel through a house’s ductwork to get to the rooms it needs to cool, the more energy it is going to take. Also, even if you are only using one room, your air conditioner will still have to cool all of the rooms throughout the house. If you’re finding that these factors are causing your energy bills to rise, you might want to consider a different solution: zoned heating and cooling.
Introducing the Mitsubishi Comfort System
Mitsubishi’s Comfort System provides a great solution for ensuring that each room of a house is at the ideal comfort level. These units operate in a similar fashion to the systems available in hotel rooms, working to regulate the temperature of a small space. By installing a unit in each individual room or comfort zone, you can ensure that the temperature is kept at a comfortable level in the rooms you are using without having to expend energy on the rest of the house.
Home-Wide or Supplemental Systems
While zoned heating and cooling through the Mitsubishi Comfort System can replace an entire home’s central HVAC system (a solution which is especially effective in older homes which do not have ductwork installed), it can also be used to supplement an existing system. This can be done for homeowners who want to save on energy bills by reducing the use of a central HVAC system, but it is also especially effective for additions to existing homes.
Since furnaces and air conditioners are sized for a specific size house, they may not be able to handle the increased capacity that comes with an addition to the home. Using zoned heating and cooling in the new addition can eliminate the need to replace the furnace and/or A/C unit with higher-capacity systems, as well as the need to install new ductwork. Rather than undertaking the construction and labor, the Mitsubishi Comfort System can be installed with minimal construction work, providing a more efficient solution that will result in long-term savings.
Depending on the options chosen, the Mitsubishi Comfort System can also act as a dehumidifier and air quality filter in addition to providing heating and cooling. Some models have advanced UV filters built in which can pull allergens out of the air, ensuring that you retain the air quality that you need.
