Think Outside the Box

ECI TAKES HOME COMFORT TO THE NEXT LEVEL:

Heating and air conditioning equipment is always evolving and becoming more efficient.  The problem is that most HVAC contractors are stuck doing business as usual.  A widely used term in our industry is to "replace the box".  A contractor will get a call for a heating or cooling related problem and see the opportunity to sell new equipment or "replace the box".  In some cases upgrading the equipment may be the solution but all too often the home itself can be the source of the problem.  

Many homeowners learn to live with hot or cold rooms, dusty furniture and high utility bills.  ECI has made it a priority to solve these issues by looking at the home and ductwork as well as the equipment.  In a lot of cases, a system cannot run at its full potential when a home is not properly air sealed and insulated.

What the Window Companies don't want you to know

Windows are a very important part of our lives - they allow us to see what is going on in the world, they let in sunshine, and they light our houses so we don’t have to use electricity during the day. We need windows.

But they are a mixed blessing. They have very low insulation values so they cost us a lot more than a plain wall would cost to heat and cool. Also, this low R-value means the surface is cold so we can feel cool standing next to them, and they have a lot of moving parts, which means they can leak air.

The importance of Air sealing your home

In typical homes, air leaks are often found at cracks, small holes, and penetrations for plumbing, wiring, lighting, and ductwork. Together, these leaks can add up to as

much air loss as having an open window! It’s easy to imagine how this can increase a homeowner’s utility bills and reduce comfort.

Sealing a home’s envelope—its exterior walls, ceiling, and floors—is an important step in controlling the indoor environment and lowering energy bills. The goal is to reduce air leakage as much as possible, while providing ventilation as needed for fresh air. In other words, “build it tight and ventilate it right.”

Mastronardo Case Study Sneek Peek

HVAC Installation in Stone Homes, Water Heater Repair - Mt. Airy, Philadelphia from ECI Comfort on Vimeo.

Coming soon to the Case Studies section of our Web Site! John Mastronardo


Overview:

About five years ago, John Mastronardo purchased a beautiful, old, stone home in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia. With only window air-conditioning units and radiators on each floor, John realized right away that the house needed a whole new HVAC system. Luckily, one of John’s neighbors was all too happy to show him the system they had installed and enthusiastically referred him to ECI Comfort. Five years later, John used ECI’s services once again to replace a water heater and sat down with Ron to discuss the work that has been done in his home.
