Old City Philadelphia is famous for its Row Homes. And, older row homes are equally famous for being uncomfortable in our humid summers because so many row homes don't have a central heating and cooling system, leaving folks to rely on window units to try to stay comfortable in the heat. This row home, built in the 1920's in Old City has a gas-fired water boiler and cast iron radiators for heat, but no central air at all. This means relying on bulky window air conditioners that are a pain to install and take down seasonally, and actually block up your windows for a good part of the year as well! On top of that, window units are not very efficient and expensive to run, and our homeowner was looking for a better solution for his new home.
The homeowner recently moved into this older home on Fillmore Street in Bristol, PA - Bucks County. The venerable home has oil heat and and lacks the ductwork, and the space needed for the ductwork, of a traditional air conditioning system. The customer was looking for the most economical, and least intrusive way, to cool the rooms on the second floor.
This clogged condenser in Yardley was preventing the air conditioner from supplying cool air to the house
Every summer our technicians go on service calls for air conditioning related issues. And, every year we find that more than half of those service calls could have been prevented by having simple, preventative maintenance performed. Here's why it's so important to have your equipment serviced on a yearly basis and what could happen if it's neglected for too long.
A thumbs up is exactly how we feel here at ECI Comfort about the new Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling system. Whether you're in the market for a whole new system or you just want to make your home more comfortable during the hot and humid weather that lies ahead, here are 5 reasons why you should choose to go ductless this summer:
If you were to walk by this charming Bristol Borough home, it might not be immediately apparent that inside, a popular salon has been thriving for almost sixty years.
Recently, ECI Comfort installed a Mitsubishi ductless split heating and air conditioning unit in the home. While we were there I got to get to know the home/salon owner, Harry Moyer, and even got a haircut while I was at it.
In October 2013, ECI Comfort Solutions completed an installation of a ductless heating and cooling system in the Fairmount neighborhood of Philadelphia. The installation was such a success story that Mitsubishi and ECI decided to publish a case study extolling the virtues of ductless systems for row homes.
