Ment Residence

A wall-mounted air handler sits discreetly high on the wall.
[This is] a technology that is at once quiet, reliable and efficient, providing us years of worry-free operation. This is an amazing product and fits our house like a glove.

For the first 30 years of Herbert Ment’s residence in Hewlett Harbor, New York, 17 different architectural publications featured his house and its steel and glass panels. There was so much attention paid to Ment’s home’s design – but in reality, so little comfort in the home, itself! Ment sought out a cooling and heating system that would offer that much-needed comfort without distracting from the house’s aesthetic. What he found offers quiet, worry-free operation: ductless from Mitsubishi Electric. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the homeowner and contractor, and see photos of the home and equipment.
