HGTV Star Sabrina Soto Transforms Her Garage

HGTV star and designer, Sabrina Soto, remodeled her home’s garage in Studio City, California, into a functional design studio. Her new flexible workspace features wooden cabinets, vibrant furnishings, large design tables and our Zoned Comfort Solutions™. With zoned technology in her newly designed garage, Soto can work comfortably year-round while having the luxury of being within steps from her living room.

During a recent interview with ApartmentTherapy, Soto said, “After living out the better part of my 30s in a three-room rented Manhattan apartment, I couldn’t wait to create a home studio space that reflected my design aesthetic ‒ fun, playful, modern and effervescent ‒ when I moved to Los Angeles. This space is a true labor of love. I gathered all the tips I employed while designing amazing spaces for my HGTV families over the years and applied them to create a real usable workable space.”

We’re delighted that our products helped Soto create her dream studio. Click here to see more photos.

Welcome Home to the Dowdells

OFH

On Thursday, April 14, U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Jonathan Dowdell and his family were welcomed into their new home in League City, Texas. The home was built and gifted by our partner, Operation FINALLY HOME (OFH), a non-profit organization focused on building mortgage-free homes for veterans. This is the 100th such home donated by OFH over the last 10 years and in 30 different states.

Cpl. Dowdell served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and earned a Purple Heart while conducting an investigation of a compound where it was suspected that IEDs were being manufactured. The explosion of a pressure plate IED left Dowdell with severe injuries, including the amputation of both legs and his left index finger.

Built by Harbour Classic Builders, LLC out of the Houston Bay Area, our zoning system helped provide the Dowdell family with a comfortable home. Some unique features of the home include a garage floor painted with the Dowdell family name and a back patio and grilling area that hosted a welcome home barbeque and dedication ceremony.

We are proud that our products have had a part in the OFH initiative and we’re especially happy to finally welcome the Dowdell family home.

It’s Trade Show Season – and We Keep on Trucking

We want to thank everyone who took the time to step inside our Mitsubishi Electric Demo Truck on the showroom floor at this week’s AHR Expo. If you missed it, passersby had the opportunity to tour the vehicle to get a firsthand look at our latest commercial and light commercial products. Visitors were surprised to find that the equipment on display inside the truck was fully operational. This gave attendees an opportunity to interact with our CITY MULTI® VRF systems and experience just how whisper-quiet they truly are.

Special thanks, as well, to Nicole Curtis, star of HGTV’s “Rehab Addict.” Nicole joined us for a two-hour meet-and-greet, generating long lines for the opportunity to get an autograph and photo!

We also want to take time to thank those who joined us at Cuba Libre for a night of celebration and even a little dancing (yes, we saw you).

We rolled in with a truck and rolled out with cigars, and hope you all had as much fun in Orlando as we had with you!

September 2_ HPAC Engineering Webinar Image

Registration for our free, hour-long webinar, “A New Era of Efficiency: Advances in Water-source VRF Technology,” is now open!

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology has become a $500 million segment of the market in just over a decade. On September 15, we are joining forces with HPAC Engineering magazine to discuss one facet of the technology contributing to that growth: water-source VRF.

Attendees will learn:

  • How the demand for higher energy efficiency has guided HVAC manufacturers.
  • How water and air source VRF differ, and the various features and benefits of each.
  • Why so many engineers use water source VRF to learn LEED® points.
  • How VRF can be paired with a geothermal, or other closed loop, system.

Our New Consumer Website Goes Live!

February 19_Comfort Site Relaunch ImageMitsubishiComfort.com, our consumer-facing website, relaunched yesterday and features a revamped design!

We’ve enhanced our website to offer users the same personalized and pleasurable experiences they enjoy with our products. The new MitsubishiComfort.com is:

  • More user-friendly: MitsubishiComfort.com is compatible with iPads and smartphones, allowing users to easily access the website from anywhere, at anytime. The new website also offers more intuitive search functions – such as the Dealer Zip Code feature – to deliver quality, comprehensive results and information more quickly and conveniently.

  • More visually appealing: More visuals and less text make the website more enjoyable to navigate and the information easier to read and understand. The sleek, modern layout features high-quality photography throughout, creating a more sophisticated, editorial look and feel.

Now users can scroll over icons on a product page for quick and easy access to brochures, manuals, photos and videos that provide more in-depth product information. We’ve also improved the website’s “shareability.” Users can easily send information to family, friends and colleagues via email, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, with just a click of a button.

We’ll highlight more of the new website’s bells and whistles in a blog post next month. In the meantime, head to MitsubishiComfort.com and start exploring!

Mitsubishi Electric Awarded at Gwinnett County’s Premier Event

John Gabilondo

Our senior director of operations & logistics,
John Gabilondo, accepting the James J.
Maran International Award on behalf of
Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating.


At Gwinnett Chamber’s 66th Annual Dinner on February 7, we were named as the second recipient ever of the James J. Maran International Award. The award, created in honor of Jim Maran, recognizes an international business that not only has chosen to call the Gwinnett County home, but has enhanced the quality of life and made it a better place to live.

More than 1,000 county leaders – including Governor Nathan Deal and Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle – attended the premier event and toasted to the collaborative work of the community, the accomplishments of 2013 and the promising outlook of 2014. “You are part of what is making Georgia grow,” Deal said in his speech about the successes that are bringing jobs to the local economy.

In August 2013, CNN Money ranked Gwinnett County ninth in its national list of “Where the Jobs Are.” In the 20 years we’ve been here, we’ve outgrown four offices, have seen double-digit growth and now plan to bring more than 100 local employees on board. Needless to say, we were flattered when Gwinnett Chamber President Dan Kaufman added that, “Through the efforts of these esteemed leaders being honored, the Gwinnett Chamber and the thriving community it serves will continue to thrive and prosper.”

For more details on Gwinnett Chamber’s Annual Dinner event, visit www.gwinnettannualdinner.com or watch a video recap of the event here.

We’re Kicking Off Our Diamond Contractor™ Conference!

diamond_contractor Logo

Today we’re excited to begin the first of two Diamond Contractor™ Conferences held just down the road from our Suwannee, Ga., offices at the Sonesta Gwinnett Place- Atlanta. Even though it’s the middle of a hot summer (and contractors’ busiest season), the event is completely sold out. The goal of the two-day conference is to equip our Diamond Contractors with tools to grow their businesses through increased sales of our ductless systems.

The conference will feature presentations, product and program announcements, motivational speakers, breakout sessions and networking opportunities for our Diamond Contractors. The next session, scheduled for October 7-9, is sold out, too. Can’t make it to either of the conferences? Check back here for updates throughout the event.

Are you interested in becoming a Diamond Contractor™? Contact your local distributor to find out how.
