While heating may be called for in the master bedroom, cooling may be needed for the sports court. Meeting this diversity is no problem for the Mitsubishi Electric R2-Series.

The owner of a 10,000-square-foot home in Byron Center, Michigan, needed some rooms in his home to stay warm (e.g., master bedroom, guest room) and others to stay cool (e.g., exercise room, tanning bed). This need for zoning and simultaneous cooling and heating brought him to Variable Refrigerant Flow zoning technology from Mitsubishi Electric. And that ultimately brought him a 75 percent savings in operating costs. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear the full story and see photos of the home and equipment.
