Whole Home HVAC Replacement for Ductless System

Family home in Waltham upgrades HVAC system with LG heating and cooling.

The owners of the single-family split-level home in Natick, New England, were ready to move their house to a more efficient solution for heating and cooling. Although the home had an existing hot water baseboard heating system, the family was in need of air conditioning to come back in the heat in the summer months. 

After looking at their options, the homeowners decided that New England Ductless would provide the best service for their home and a quick installation. The family also opted to keep the existing heating system as a supplemental option.

The Problem: The owners of this single-family home needed a whole home replacement for their house. The existing hot water baseboard heating was leaving hot and cold spots throughout the home and the lack of a central AC kept them sweating in the summer.

The Solution: NED installed a set of new ducted and ductless heating and cooling systems. The air handler in the attic was replaced, and new ductwork was installed. Additionally, ductless wall-mounted ACs were installed in the living, family, and dining rooms.

The Design

The first thing that would need to be done is to replace the furnace and all ductwork. Additionally, three new ductless mini splits would need to be installed inside the home to provide the heated and cooled air.

Outside the house, an LG ductless heat pump would be installed to provide the heated and cooled air to the indoor units. This heat pump works in tandem with the air handler in the attic, all the new duct work, and all three of the interior ductless wall ACs.

The Installation

Next, the team set up the outdoor condenser to supply the heated and cooled air throughout the home. This LG heat pump operates exceptionally efficiently, transferring the heat that is already in the air outside the house through thin piping to the air handler‘s or ductless units to provide warmth throughout the space.

After the heat pumps were in place, the team installed the three units in the living room, family room, and dining room. These three spaces would enjoy quiet, reliable comfort at the touch of a button.
