If you’re ready to install A/C, here are a few thoughts from retired Navy Capt. John Dunbar, who upgraded his Aikahi Park home with a Mitsubishi A/C system from Alternate Energy Inc. (AEI).


Dunbar spent 30 years as a contracting officer and facilities manager in the civil engineer corps, plus 12 years as an energy management contractor for the Navy and the Marine Corps. He knows how to spot a quality product, a good contractor and a great deal.

“I’ve dealt with a lot of energy-saving projects. I was really impressed by AEI,” Dunbar said. “First, the Mitsubishi A/C product is simply outstanding. The fact that they can offer a 12-year warranty is a testament to their quality. AEI is a Mitsubishi Diamond Contractor, so they know the product inside and out. They were professionals from initial contact and expertise of sales representatives all the way to project completion.

“After our initial consultation, they actually came out with a project engineer who walked through and discussed options for placement. They took pictures and prepared a design and installation plan so we could see exactly where everything would go. Installers arrived on time and the crew was courteous and friendly. Project managers checked in throughout the day.”

Dunbar and his family have been enjoying their new Mitsubishi system for several months now, and it has turned their home into an oasis of cool comfort. “We literally can’t hear the system when it’s on,” Dunbar said. “AEI was careful about where they placed the outdoor unit as well, so it doesn’t interfere with our garden pathways.”

Mitsubishi’s inverter-driven, ductless A/C system is up to 40 percent more efficient than standard systems, keeping energy bills low. With AEI’s “Cool Now, Pay Way Later” sale, enjoy a cool summer and receive up to $300 off per outdoor unit, plus pay $0 down for 12 months through Central Pacific Bank.
