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.

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.

Installing a Ductless Mini-Split For An Older Bucks County Home Addition

PROBLEM: These homeowners were tired of installing window units, so they called ECI looking to get a high velocity system installed. This was perfect for the main house, but there wasn't a great way to tie it in to the addition. They also weren't big fans of the look of ductless splits.

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a high velocity system in the main house and a two-zone ductless mini-split system for the addition. Both of the ductless units were blended in with their surroundings to minimize any interruption with the home's aesthetic.

South Philly Rowhome Finally Gets a Permanent AC Solution

PROBLEM:  New homeowners, Ted and Carrie, reached out to ECI during their settlement process on an old Philadelphia rowhome. The rowhome was equipped with cast-iron radiators for heat and window units for AC. Ted and Carrie were looking for a more permanent solution for their new home. Concerned about space and noise, they reached out to ECI about ductless mini-splits.

SOLUTION:
ECI Comfort installed a four-zone Mitsubishi Ductless system.  This multi-zone system was installed across three stories and provides both heating and cooling. This provided a permanent solution for their forever home and eliminated the need for those noisy window units. Since these Mitsubishi mini-splits require no ductwork, our homeowners can save on valuable space and get the most out of their new home. They also feature whisper-quiet technology.

1700s Stone Farmhouse Gets AC Upgrade It Always Needed

PROBLEM:  Our homeowner, David, has a charming stone home built in the early 1700s. The home was built in three phases and was equipped with cast iron radiators for heat with no cooling system.

SOLUTION:
ECI Comfort installed a four-zone Mitsubishi Ductless system.  This four-zone system provides heating and cooling to the main spaces of the home without disrupting the homes functionality. With the home being constructed in different stages, finding spaces for the splits and the heat pump proved to be tricky. But with help from our lead installer, Matt, and coordination with the homeowner, our team found the perfect options and placements. For older homes with limited space, ductless AC is the perfect match.
