Have you had work done around the home recently or converted your basement or attic? Ductless mini-split air conditioners are the perfect match for new home additions because they can be installed and controlled on a room-by-room basis and do not require bulky, expensive ductwork. Some models even provide a measure of heating power that can be useful in milder temperatures, but not for a real Massachusetts winter when temperatures can drop near zero. In extremely cold environments your heat pump can freeze, like running an air conditioner in the winter!


The time to upgrade is NOW, and here's why:


  • Tax Incentives: IRA tax incentives include up to $2,000 for installations of qualifying ductless mini-split systems.


  • Room-by-Room Control: Mini-split systems are independently wall mounted and remote-controlled, allowing you to adjust the cooling of your home on a room-by-room basis. 


  • Higher Efficiency: Window air conditioning units are inefficient and can raise your monthly energy bills. A mini-split air conditioner will provide more cooling to your home while lowering your electric bills.


  • Multi-Functional: Many ductless mini-split systems can also be used for heating your home. This allows for a smooth transition from heating to cooling when the seasons change.


North Shore Fuel provides top-of-the-line ductless mini-split air conditioners from Mitsubishi Electric. Their "Mr. Slim" model is an energy-efficient ductless system that is perfect for installing in tight, compact spaces.
