Older homes in Bucks County, Pa. and Philadelphia, Pa. have qualities that you just can't find in new construction -- at least not without a sizable investment to replicate the character. However, these charming older homes come with one setback: they're notoriously challenging to heat and cool without spending a fortune. That's where ECI Comfort and Mitsubishi Electric can step in to help.
Why Mitsubishi Ductless Systems Are Great for Older Homes
The Mitsubishi ductless systems that we install give you precise control over your environment without interfering with your home's great features. And because older homes often have problem spots, you can create independent climate zones, which puts you in charge of the temperature in every room. Sound ideal? That's because it is!
If you've got an older home, here's how you can have the best of everything:
When winter is at its worst, Mitsubishi keeps your whole house comfortable
Living on the East Coast means winters are bitter, and that means your energy bills will soar when trying to heat your older home. With a Mitsubishi ductless system, you don't have to sacrifice your comfort to keep energy consumption low.
Mitsubishi systems with Hyper-Heating INVERTER (H2i®) technology are heat pumps with a critical difference: they keep providing the warmth that you need when winter weather drops into the teens, or even below zero. You'll have a warmer home without the extreme costs of running a furnace or boiler to carry the load.
Drafts and cold spots are no match for our solutions
Drafts are an unfortunate -- but inevitable -- occurrence when it comes to older homes. Whereas new construction might be sealed up, older homes that have settled may introduce gaps. They also may not have insulation that's up to today's standards. Both of these factors are likely to produce drafts and cold spots that a conventional system can't fix well. Mitsubishi ductless systems, on the other hand, uses 3D i-See Sensor™ technology that detects and corrects cold spots, meaning you'll never have to leave your cozy couch to get maximum comfort.
The Mitsubishi sensors actively scan each zone, looking for areas where you need more heat to match the comfort level that you've set. When a cold spot is detected, the unit automatically adjusts and sends tempered air to correct it. With this precise control, you won't have to adjust the main thermostat and change the temperature of your whole house just to take the chill off one area. This saves energy and keeps your bills lower as a result.
Zone control lets you decide your own level of comfort in every room
Constantly battling with family members over what the most comfortable temperature is? You need a zoned system! A Mitsubishi ductless system has a small outdoor unit that can serve several indoor units. Each zone in your home has its own dedicated indoor unit, which is also small and mounts nearly anywhere you like. There's no ductwork to think about either, so you won't have to modify any of your architecture.
Controlling your home in zones means you can set just the right temperature for different parts of your home. You might not want or need the foyer to feel as toasty as the living room or den. With a Mitsubishi ductless system, you can have it just the way you like, and your high ceilings and walls won't be sacrificed in the name of a new heat system.
Older homes have remained a tradeoff when it comes to heating and cooling, but that's changing. Where owning a house with great bones but serious drafts was once a package deal, you can now have the beauty and character that made you fall in love with the house, but with comfort you never thought possible.
