LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Executives and staff from Haier Ductless, Emerson Swan, and Action Energy will join local dignitaries for a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the beginning of a large-scale rehab and modernization upgrade to Quincy Housing Authority buildings. The project includes over 750 new Haier FlexFit multi-zone ductless heat pump systems in four Quincy Housing Authority buildings. FlexFit systems can operate from 2 to 4 indoor units simultaneously and can control the temperature of each zone individually while providing high-efficiency heating and cooling along with enhanced comfort and lowering energy costs.

“We are pleased that our multi-zone ductless systems were the right solution for this project,” said Nick Shin, vice president and business unit leader, Haier Ductless. “There was a lot of planning and coordination to make this happen and I’d like to thank Emerson Swan; National Grid; Action Energy; the installing contractors, Gem Mechanical and Breen & Sullivan Mechanical; and the Quincy Housing Authority.”

“This was a project that demanded an affordable and energy efficient solution for over 700 units,” said Colin Heneghan, 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, reducing carbon footprint, and increasing the comfort and durability of the buildings for their residents.”

“This project came to fruition after six months of hard work thanks to Action Energy, the Quincy Housing Authority, and Haier, our partner since 2013,” said Tim Eaton, AP Heating Sales, Emerson Swan. “Teamwork makes projects like this happen.”
