Project Profile: Community Connections, Washington, D.C.

April 10_Community Connections ImageCommunity Connections is the largest not-for-profit mental health agency in Washington, D.C., and provides innovative health care and residential services to men, women and children in need. The organization continually strives to improve the lives of the city’s most vulnerable citizens. As part of this commitment, Community Connections installed our systems to help increase comfort and reduce operational costs in one of its apartment facilities.

The Community Connections building used gas-fired furnaces original to the 1950s building and window air-conditioning units for heating and cooling. The system was outdated, inadequate and inefficient. The organization was spending more money on utility bills than it should.

Using our ductless M-Series systems, Community Connections now provides its residents with a consistently comfortable and healthy environment, and the organization is benefiting from the system’s efficiencies as well. The M-Series helped achieve more than a 40 percent reduction in energy use, which led to lower utility bills for Community Connections. More importantly, it allows the organization to better allocate funds to carry out its mission.
