Brannon Gardens is a newly built community in the suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky, offering customizable, ranch-style homes. As residents began to move in, several complained about experiencing thermal discomfort on the bedroom level. The cause: ineffective traditional HVAC. The entire community – some already built, some just spec’d – would need to find a solution to address the zoning issues. That solution: our Zoned Comfort Solutions™.
William Richmond, owner and president, Richmond Mechanical, Inc., Lexington, worked with the home builder to fix the airflow issue. Richmond came to the conclusion that dampers would not solve anything and adding a second HVAC system wasn’t practical. The project team took interest in our systems’ INVERTER technology, among many other features and benefits. For Richmond, the answer was clear: “I researched all of the brands. Mitsubishi [Electric] is the only one that goes to 13 below zero. It’s the only one that has a 3-ton air handler you can put ducts on and run to multiple rooms.”
With our Zoned Comfort Solutions, residents of the Brannon Gardens community can now achieve comfort in all parts of their homes at a lower cost of operation. Many residents are also using our kumo cloud™ programmable controller app, which allows them to control their indoor units remotely over their smartphone, tablet or computer.
