Summer is here. It’s time to turn your dream of a cool, air-conditioned home into a reality. Alternate Energy Inc.’s (AEI) new Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Division can bring the industry’s latest and most efficient cooling technology to your home or office today.

A Mitsubishi Elite Dealer long renowned as Hawaii’s leader in residential PV sales and installation, AEI is becoming equally acclaimed for its top-notch HVAC and electrical contracting service. All designs and installations are done by AEI’s in-house team of electrical engineers, HVAC journeymen and licensed electricians, who are proud employees of the company, not subcontractors.


Sales director Craig Kawamura said, “Our customers love having us as their one go-to contractor, to handle everything related to home comfort and efficiency. They also really appreciate the option to have us install PV, solar water heating, solar attic fans and even electric vehicle charging, to maximize their home’s energy-efficiency into the future.” Mitsubishi Electric’s efficient, quiet, high-quality HVAC systems are the gold standard for home cooling.

The advanced ductless technology offers not only the industry’s highest SEER efficiency ratings, but also allows you to enjoy more precise comfort in one or multiple rooms. Because you can control the temperature in individual rooms, you avoid the energy waste of having to cool or heat rooms you are not using.

Mitsubishi’s inverter technology also enhances efficiency. The inverter-driven compressors instantly and automatically adjust to changing room environment conditions, to deliver ideal comfort, while only using the energy that’s needed.

One more extremely important point of difference: AEI takes care of all City & County building permits and Homeowners Association requirements. Kawamura cautions that other contractors may make the homeowner deal with permitting, or worse, not pull permits at all, and have unlicensed electricians do the electrical work. This can cause problems down the line, when it comes time to do more electrical work or even sell your home.


AEI also offers a 2-year workmanship warranty on its HVAC installations (compared to the traditional 1-year warranty offered by most); and, as a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractor, the company offers a 7-year parts, 7-year compressor warranty.
