How old is your Boston-area home? If it was built before central air conditioning became common in the 1960s, it might not have ductwork. This is especially true if it’s heated with a hot water system (boiler).
At Cubby Oil & Energy, we talk to lots of homeowners who live in houses without ducts and mistakenly believe that they are stuck with window A/C units. This is a shame because, to be blunt, window units are awful. They don’t cool large areas effectively; they’re loud; they leak cool air through gaps in the window, and their efficiency is subpar at best. Plus, you lose the view from your window!
And homeowners relying on window A/C’s face an aggravating choice every year: Do you leave them in and risk heat loss all winter or go through the arduous process of hoisting them into and out of storage?
Are those enough good reasons to look for a better, more efficient, longer-term cooling system? We have a solution that doesn’t require any ductwork in your home — ductless mini-splits.
Ductless systems are composed of two components: indoor units that cool individual parts of your home and an outdoor compressor that they connect to through thin pipes in your wall. The indoor units pull in the warm air from your rooms, then cool it and return it.
There are a plethora of advantages to installing ductless mini-splits in your home. Pardon us if this sounds like a love letter, but we can’t help singing the praises of these fantastic systems:
We install and service Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini-split systems, some of the top-rated ductless cooling products on the market. Since we are Diamond Preferred Contractors, any Mitsubishi system we install will have a 10-year parts and 10-year compressor warranty!
Don’t suffer through a sweltering summer with ineffective window A/C’s. Contact the Cubby team today to find a top-of-the-line ductless cooling option.
