Split level homes like this one in Huntley, IL are notorious for being hard to heat and cool efficiently. This type of home contains different levels, making for inconsistent air flow, and as a result, there are usually hot and cold spots everywhere. You’ll be comfortable on the top floor, but the lower floor ends up being cold and clammy, or if you adjust the heat to make the lower floors livable, the top floors turn into a sauna. This is where a ductless system is a perfect solution to eliminate hot and cold spots throughout the home.
Our homeowners were trying to stay comfortable in the summer using only window air conditioners. Besides taking up windows for almost half the year, the window units were noisy and inefficient, costing a fortune to run whenever the weather turned hot. Add in the frustration of installing these heavy, bulky units in the Spring, losing a window for the Summer, and storing them in the Fall, and it’s no wonder people are looking for a better solution.
Problem: The owners of this Split level home were tired of the uneven heating and cooling throughout the home. The window units they were using for air conditioning were noisy and expensive to run, and they never seemed to get enough heat in their first-floor family room.
Solution: 3 zones of Mitsubishi Ductless heating and air conditioning, one for the master bedroom, one for the family room and one for the kitchen/dining room will ensure the family finally has the comfort they crave every day of the year.
Our homeowners gave us a call to see if we could offer a solution that would allow them to finally be comfortable all year long, without costing an arm and a leg in energy bills. We knew right away that a Mitsubishi ductless heating and air conditioning system would be a great choice to provide our Huntley, IL homeowners with the comfort they craved.
Mitsubishi ductless systems are designed to provide a separate zone of heating and air conditioning right where you need it. The system consists of two basic parts- an outdoor heat pump condenser which connects to each indoor wall-mounted unit called a cassette. Each cassette can be controlled independently, allowing you to adjust the comfort level without affecting the other areas of the home. You can also turn the units off when not in use, allowing you to save money by not heating or cooling areas when no one is there to enjoy the space!
A single condenser can power up to eight cassettes, making Mitsubishi ductless systems flexible and expandable, which gives homeowners a lot of options for the number of zones needed, while also leaving room to expand the system, later on, making this system budget-friendly as well.
In this case, the homeowner opted for three zones of custom comfort- one for the master bedroom, one for the family room and one for the kitchen/dining room area. As you can see from the pictures, the wall mounted units are tucked away high on the wall. From that position, the state of the art sensors scan the room for both temperature and humidity. The units then distribute hot or cool air as needed, adjusting the level and providing consistent, even heating and cooling throughout a space.
While comfort is our main concern, at Compass, we also know you want your home to look great as well. That’s why we go the extra mile to make sure all the electric and coolant lines are hidden, giving your home a terrific appearance, inside and out.
Because of the overall energy efficiency of the Mitsubishi ductless systems, our Huntley, IL homeowners qualified for rebates of $900 and were also able to take advantage of 0% financing, making this upgrade in comfort to their home affordable as well. And because Compass is a Mitsubishi Elite Diamond dealer, we are able to offer a full twelve-year warranty on these systems, giving our homeowners comfort, reliability and peace of mind for years to come.

We can help design a system that will get rid of those bulky, noisy and expensive to run window units once and for all, while giving you year-round comfort and reducing your energy bills- that’s something any homeowner will appreciate!
