ECI Upgrades Gas Boiler System That We Installed 22 Years Ago in Media, Pa

PROBLEM: ECI installed a Peerless boiler system 22 years ago for Mr. Moppert. While it functioned properly all those years, it was finally time for an upgrade. Mr. Moppert started hearing some loud sounds coming from the unit and gave ECI a call to get an up-to-date system. 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a Lochinvar Knight 95% gas-fired, hot-water heating boiler. This included a new Lochinvar indirect 80-gallon water heater and a new Lochinvar 30-gallon buffer tank.

Mitsubishi SEZ & Unico High Velocity Install for the Fezzuoglio Family

PROBLEM: While John Fezzuoglio and his family were renovating and redesigning their entire home, they decided it was the perfect time for upgrading their cooling system. Not wanting to sacrifice their dream aesthetics for comfort, we were challenged with designing a non-intrusive HVAC system. 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a Unico Small-Duct High Velocity system in combination with Mitsubishi SEZ Small-Duct Mini-Splits. These systems take up much less space than traditional ductwork, provide extreme cooling comfort, and are both efficient and quiet.

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.

Yardley, PA Addition Turns to Mitsubishi Ductless System

PROBLEM: Our homeowner in Yardley was putting an addition on the back of his house and basement with a contractor we have previously worked with. The rest of the house has a ducted heating and cooling system, but the new space was left unconditioned, meaning he needed a heating and cooling solution for these two new zones.

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a Mitsubishi Ductless Hyper-Heat Mini-Split system. This system doesn't require ductwork to add both air conditioning and heating, so it's the perfect way to solve heating and cooling problems in a space without an existing system. Plus, it provides additional zones for spaces that have different comfort needs.

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.

Chestnut Hill and Unico High Velocity: The Perfect Match

PROBLEM: Our homeowner, Alex, recently purchased this charming new Chestnut Hill home. It needed some updating, which was to be done while maintaining its historic value. But the biggest issue in an older home like this is the lack of air conditioning -- something Alex and his family were not going to live without. 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a Unico High Velocity system with a Bosch Heat Pump Inverter and Green Series Air Handler. This system will provide even and comfortable temperatures through each room, drastically reduce humidity, and create the perfect comfort solution, while minimizing any changes to the interior!

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.
