The electric baseboard heaters were resulting in high utility bills for tenants and causing occupancy issues for the new owner who approached RMP. Additionally, the old property was dealing with health and comfort issues for the tenants due to insulation issues around window air conditioning units: issues such as hot/cold drafts and condensation inside the building.
High-efficiency heat pump-based HVAC units replaced the window A/C and baseboard heaters in each unit. The highly efficient units installed reduce the utility bills drastically for the tenants while closing the window A/C openings took care of the health and comfort issues.
