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!

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed two Mitsubishi Ductless Mini-Split systems, one for the left side of the house and one for the right side. This will finally provide Joe & Sandy with the comfort they deserve!

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.

Maple Glen, PA Home Replaces Older Ductless System

PROBLEM: Our homeowner, Curt, has an amazing at-home gym. While it features all the equipment one could need, it is located above the garage in a space that was built without heating or cooling. About 10 years ago, he had a Sanyo Ductless Split installed, which he loved. After many years of great use, it saw its last day. Curt needed to replace the unit to keep his gym warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

SOLUTION: ECI installed a single-zone Mitsubishi Hyper Heat ductless system in the gym. The updated Mitsubishi unit provides the zoned heating and cooling Curt loved for this space. With the updated unit, it takes up less space and features a much sleeker look.

Mitsubishi SEZ and Ductless Combo Cools Bensalem Home


PROBLEM: Our Bensalem, PA homeowners, Eileen and Tom, have spent far too long living without central air conditioning. In their beautiful home, an oil boiler with baseboard radiators keeps them warm in the colder climate, but window AC units have become rattling nightmares. Time for a comfort change!

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a three-zone system, with two SEZ horizontal ducted units, paired with a high-wall mounted ductless unit. This combination provides air conditioning to the second and first floor, as well as a supplemental heat source to keep down energy costs in the colder months!

Indoor Air Quality Package Solves Allergy Issues in Philadelphia Home

PROBLEM: These homeowners struggled with bad allergies and asthma due to dry and dusty air from their forced hot air furnace. This lead them to installing an expensive boiler and radiant floor system to avoid using the furnace, which then stopped working. 

SOLUTION: After an initial sale of a new boiler to try and fix the radiator heat issue, ECI changed course to implement an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) package to the existing and functioning ducted furnace.

South Philly Rowhome Beats the Heat with Mitsubishi Ductless AC

PROBLEM: This homeowner was tired of the summer heat taking over her home, but it was too much of a pain to continuously install window AC units every year. Not only was the installation process burdensome, but the inefficiency and "window-rattling" were becoming too much of a nuisance. Time for an upgrade!

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 South Philly rowhomes, ductless AC is the perfect match.

Merion Station, PA Home Adds Mitsubishi Ductless to Uncomfortable Room

PROBLEM: This Cape Cod-style home built in 1953 had existing ductwork for central air and heat, but certain rooms experienced uneven temperatures, resulting in discomfort. Two second floor bedrooms already had Mitsubishi Hyper-Heat ductless systems to combat the home's issues, but a third room was experiencing similar issues. 

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a single-zone Mitsubishi Hyper-Heat ductless system in the first floor office and guest bedroom. This room does not heat up or cool as well as the rest of the house, so this ductless unit will provide the perfect solution to create comfort in the home.
