Project Files: An Authority on Affordability
Company: Haier Ductless
Customer: Quincy Housing Authority Buildings, Quincy, Massachusetts
Installation: 750 Haier FlexFit multi-zone ductless heat pump systems.
Objective: The Quincy Housing Authority (QHA) aimed to reduce the energy consumption of the its primary building, decrease its carbon footprint, and increase the comfort and durability of the buildings for residents. The mission of the organization is to promote, develop, and maintain affordable rent and home-ownership housing opportunities that are well designed, consistent with market standards, cost-effective to manage, and encourage freedom of choice. By providing an efficient environment of choice, strengthened by essential support services, the QHA seeks to assist eligible households and individuals of low and moderate income in achieving household stability and economic self-sufficiency.
Work Completed: More than 750 new Haier FlexFit multi-zone ductless heat pump systems were installed in four Quincy Housing Authority buildings. FlexFit systems can operate from two to four indoor units simultaneously and control the temperature of each zone individually while providing high efficiency heating and cooling. “This was a project that demanded an affordable and energy-efficient solution for more than 700 units,” said Colin Heneghan, heating systems specialist Action Energy. “When all of the parties come together to work toward one goal, that’s how you get to where we are today with this successful project kick off. We are happy to be working with the Quincy Housing Authority to reduce their energy consumption saving money and kilowatts, reduce their carbon footprint, and increase the comfort and durability of the buildings for their residents.”
