Meet The Homeowners:
The Taber Family

The Tabers recognized the importance of a reliable heating system for their harsh winters in Colorado. This prompted a shift from older gas furnaces to the innovative Mitsubishi cold climate heat pump systems.

This eco-conscious decision aligns with a broader industry trend, emphasizing sustainability and efficiency, and signifies a significant reduction in energy consumption and utility costs for the Tabers.

The dual-fuel heating system on the lower level and the cutting-edge Mitsubishi SVZ air handler with a cold climate heat pump on the upper level provide adaptable solutions, offering a more efficient, eco-friendly, and versatile HVAC system tailored to Eagle County’s diverse climate.

The Challenge

The Tabers previously had two older 80% efficiency gas-burning furnaces that relied on natural gas, a non-renewable fossil fuel. The issue with these furnaces was their limited efficiency, contributing to concerns about environmental impact and significant carbon emissions, which in turn contributed to the greenhouse effect.

In the construction phase, Elite HVAC prioritized protecting the Tabers’ home before removing the old furnace. The installation of the ducted cold climate heat pump followed, with ongoing communication through daily updates containing pictures and videos.

This kept the Tabers well-informed and provided an avenue for addressing any additional questions or concerns throughout the installation process.



Now equipped with cutting-edge HVAC systems, the Tabers can fully enjoy their home with enhanced comfort and efficiency. The reduction in carbon emissions and energy costs further contributes to a more eco-friendly and cost-effective lifestyle, aligning with the Tabers’ commitment to sustainability.
