But, those units were loud, expensive and required a lot of upkeep. 

Solution: Installed a UNICO high velocity air conditioning system. This system treats the entire home without ductwork or any renovations.

High Velocity Air Conditioning Cools Historic Mt. Airy Home

Problem: Classical guitarist Allen Krantz and his wife Susan love their historic Mt. Airy home. But, they struggled to stay cool in the summer. Window air conditioners were too loud, too expensive, and didn't always get the job done. Allen's fingers would literally stick to his guitar sometimes when he practiced. 

Solution: Installed a UNICO high velocity system throughout the home. Now, each room is as cool as the Krantzes want them.  And, they didn't have to add ductwork or change the look and feel of the home. Plus, the system is whisper-quiet, so Allen can hear every note he plays.

Abington Colonial Needs a New Boiler

Problem: Customer had a twenty-five year old boiler with a bad gas valve. Replacement was expensive, and they decided rather than sink the money into a pricey repair in the old unit, investing in a new boiler would be a wiser long-term investment in their comfort and safety.

Solution: ECI installed a newer version of their Burnham boiler, a series-3 Model #306 gas boiler with electronic ignition. This new boiler will save on fuel by not wasting it running a pilot light constantly, and is more efficient than the older boiler. The new control packages can save between 15 and 20% in fuel costs.
