Sleek Home Comfort Upgrades

Ductless air conditioning is a sleek upgrade that can save cash in the long run.You don’t need a new home to live in luxury. Many homeowners are installing sleek upgrades to make their lives a little more comfortable. Upgrading HVAC systems and controls, adding a gas fireplace or making small changes to the kitchen can make you feel like you have a new home and help you feel more comfortable in the space you have.

Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless air conditioning systems are cost effective and energy efficient. Whether you are adding a sunroom or replacing an outdated HVAC system, you can affordably add a ductless system and retain or improve upon the comfort levels you enjoyed before. The indoor units are inconspicuous, environmentally friendly and as quiet as a whisper. They can be concealed in recesses in the ceiling or even in a wall unit. The outdoor units come in single-zone or multi-zone options. If you need to cool and heat several rooms, a multi-zone system would be appropriate.

Programmable Thermostats

Upgrading the controls of your heating and cooling system can keep everyone in the home completely comfortable without lifting a finger. Programmable thermostats allow you to save money by adjusting the thermostat to a comfortable temperature when you’re home and an energy-saving temperature when you’re away. You can set it to return to the comfortable temperature before you come home so that you don’t have to experience any discomfort. Best of all, you don’t have to think about a thing. Just set it and forget it.

Gas Fireplaces

Traditional wood fireplaces are not only inefficient when it comes to energy usage, they aren’t all that comfortable. To really feel the heat, you need to get up close, and when you do, it gets a little too hot a little too fast. Gas fireplaces provide even heating in small zones. You can turn down the thermostats in unused rooms while sitting in front of your gas fireplace, reducing energy costs by up to 40 percent. Gas fireplaces are also convenient, can be completely customized to your décor and increase the value of your home.

Affordable Kitchen Overhaul

Redoing the kitchen can also increase the value of your home. Most homeowners recoup at least 80 percent of their investment when upgrading the kitchen. An easy way to add a stylish improvement is to add or replace the hardware on the cabinets and drawers. Modernize the kitchen with a coat of bold paint and sleek drawer pulls or pull off a vintage look with retro hardware and a mint-green wall. Replacing standard lighting fixtures can also go a long way in making your kitchen more sophisticated.

Small upgrades throughout your home can give it new life for year to come. Find out more about going ductless with your heating and cooling by reaching out to a Mitsubishi Electric contractor today. This sleek upgrade can increase your comfort while lowering your utility bills.
