Home Heating Transformation: Philadelphia Homeowner Upgrades to Mitsubishi Electric Hyper-Heat System

PROBLEM: Our customer, Maria, had a steam boiler for twenty years. In the past couple of years, she decided it was time to move away from her high gas bills and stop spending money each year to keep it running. 

SOLUTION: ECI installed a Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Heat Pump with four indoor wall units to allow her to customize her heating and cooling!

Our Philadelphia homeowner was dealing with a pretty old and expensive heating system – her steam boiler. Her boiler was giving her crazy high gas bills and needed fixing almost every year. Plus, she had old-school radiators in her basement, using basement heat to warm her entire home. Maria's heating setup was old and not doing her any favors. Between the high costs of gas bills and repairs, she knew it was time to find an efficient system to keep her home cozy.

Check out this 5-star review Maria left on Google after her installation! 

"The work was very professionally done, the house remained clean throughout several days of 'dusty' drilling, the installers worked steadily all day and were kind and patient with my concerns and questions. I am left with no worries about how my new heat pump will work.  I tried but couldn’t get the review to add more stars! Thanks James and Nick."

Benefits of the Mitsubishi Electric Ductless System

Energy efficiency and cost savings

Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems are highly energy-efficient, providing precise control over heating and cooling. This efficiency can result in reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills compared to traditional steam boilers.

Go Green and Save Green With a Heat Pump

Zoned control

Ductless systems allow for zoned heating and cooling, meaning you can control the temperature independently in different areas or rooms. This zoning capability enhances comfort and energy efficiency by only heating or cooling spaces that are in use, reducing energy waste.

Personalized comfort

Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems offer individualized comfort with customizable settings for each indoor unit. Occupants can set their preferred temperature levels, airflow, and modes, ensuring personalized comfort throughout the living or working space.

Tax credits and rebates

In some regions, the installation of energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, such as Mitsubishi Electric heat pump systems, may qualify for tax credits or rebates. These incentives can contribute to the overall cost-effectiveness of the system and provide financial benefits.

Space savings and installation flexibility

Ductless systems eliminate the need for bulky radiators associated with steam boilers or ductwork associated with furnaces. This not only saves space but also offers more flexibility in terms of installation, making it suitable for a variety of architectural designs and spaces.

Improved indoor air quality

Ductless mini-split systems often come with advanced filtration features, improving indoor air quality by capturing and removing allergens, dust, and other particles. This can contribute to a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment.

Quiet operation

Unlike some traditional heating systems, the Hyper-Heat heat pump operates quietly and unobtrusively. You won't have to endure the noise and vibrations associated with a boiler or furnace, enhancing your overall comfort and living experience.Learn More About Hyper-Heat
