This micro-unit apartment complex with electric resistance heating system was causing tenant complaints about the high utility costs and their inability to put their furniture in desired locations due to the small size of the units. The property owner wanted to preserve all possible rentable sq. ft. so installing new furnaces that would take away from the rentable space was not an option.
The customer was presented with the idea of a high-efficiency, high wall-head, heat pump HVAC to allow tenants more freedom to rearrange their furniture as well as not taking up any internal sq. footage. Additionally, the owner was shown how RMP incentives would help them get the desired high-efficiency equipment to work within their budget.
Savings generated from new HVAC heat pump systems, high efficiency insulation, programmable thermostats and LED lighting.
