Back in July, in the midst of a heat wave, I introduced to you to a Levittown couple in in the process of an HVAC installation. If you recall, they made the decision to switch to an all-electric heating and air conditioning system and had Mitsubishi Ductless Splits and a Mitsubishi ducted unit with a ceiling cassette installed by ECI Comfort Solutions www.ecicomfort.com
To refresh your memory, Levittown homeowners, Elliot Rubinsky and Sarah Jonas, made a decision to change the way they heat their home. They no longer want to depend on their baseboard oil heat and have chosen to convert their home’s heating and air conditioning to an all electric service, but the decision didn’t come easy.
After more than two years as an automatic delivery oil contract customer, complete with maintenance agreement, with the same company, they found themselves one cold day in January without any oil to heat their home.They were shocked that a company that had delivered their oil for so long, could allow this to happen. To add to their frustration, they were told that they were going to be charged more per gallon for the emergency delivery of diesel that night and that it was their fault they had run out of oil. They continued to receive a their monthly bill for oil they never received. Frustrated and fed up, they decided to take the plunge and switch to an all-electric system.
Elliot and Sarah have only had 7 weeks with the system fully functional, but had this to say, “It was quieter than the wall AC and we did save some money. I suspect the winter will be more flattering.”
I will definitely check back with them after this winter, to see how they feel about abandoning their oil heat for good.
