Mitsubishi Ductless AC Replacement in Boathouse Row, Philadelphia Following Flood Damage

Mitsubishi Ductless AC Replacement in Boathouse Row, Philadelphia Following Flood Damage

PROBLEM: The air conditioning units outside Fairmount Rowing Association along Boathouse Row, Philadelphia were damaged during Hurricane Ida's massive flooding. As a result, the boathouse was left with no AC and therefore needed a new solution for their cooling needs.

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort replaced the five indoor ductless air handlers with brand new Mitsubishi ductless models. The five new outdoor units were relocated to the opposite side of the building where flooding is less likely. They were also mounted high on the wall instead of the ground so that they will not be reached in the event of another flood.

Mitsubishi Ductless in a University City Twin

Mitsubishi Ductless in a University City Twin

PROBLEM: Our homeowners, Katherine and Patrick, recently purchased a beautiful University City twin-home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As with most old Philadelphia homes, they are designed with boiler & radiator heat - meaning no air conditioning! These homes bake in the summer heat, making them extremely uncomfortable. Tired of window units, they were ready for a permanent fix. 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a Mitsubishi Ductless Mini-Split system. This system doesn't require ductwork to add both air conditioning and supplemental heat, so it's a great way to solve heating and cooling problems in older homes that lack the extra space for ductwork. For Philadelphia homes, ductless AC is the perfect match.

Mitsubishi Ductless Saves the Day for Fairmount Homeowners

PROBLEM: Danny and his family were presented with a problem after purchasing their home a few years ago: an older HVAC system that never quite got the job done. After a few years of constant issues -- finally capped off by a dead system -- they were stuck in the heat of the Summer with no way to cool their home. Their heat pump system was also their main heat source, so looking ahead to Winter caused urgency as well. Enter the debate of fix, replace, or re-invent...was it time for ductless heating and cooling? 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a multi-zone Mitsubishi Hyper-Heat Ductless Mini-Split heating and cooling system. With equipment delays becoming the norm, we also installed temporary window & portable AC units to provide the homeowners with relief from the extreme heatwave while we worked to get our equipment in and begin the installation.
