Mitsubishi Electric - Heat Pumps for Heating
Low Carbon Heating - Air Source Heat Pumps - Air to Water Heat Pumps - Residential Heating - Commercial Heating
The new Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive requires all space and water heating products to display an energy label to identify the most energy efficient products available. The Ecodan® range has achieved the highest space heating band of an A++ rating.
Ecodan® Heat Pumps
Mitsubishi Electric has introduced the future of viable, mass market, low carbon domestic and commercial heating with the award-winning Ecodan air source heat pump systems.
Manufactured in Scotland and the Far East, Ecodan is accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), offering homes and commercial properties a viable, low carbon alternative to gas and oil heating.
The new fifth generation of domestic models is specifically designed for the UK. Ecodan is as ‘plug and play’ as possible, quiet and inverter controlled to regulate energy consumption.
Equally important in these days of fuel poverty, Ecodan can reduce a home’s fuel bills compared with oil, older gas boilers, LPG and direct electric.
The latest advanced range of cylinders includes a completely new way of heating the water in domestic situations, using a plate heat exchanger and patented Scale-Stop technology to eliminate the effect of limescale.
Mitsubishi Electric has also introduced remote energy monitoring on every Ecodan that leaves the factory, with the company believing this is key to demonstrating the effectiveness of heat pumps and helping homeowners to qualify for incentive payments.
Ecodan runs on a single-phase electrical circuit and delivers these levels of efficiencies over gas, even when the inefficiencies of the National Grid are taken into account.
As greener sources of electricity become available, the efficiency (and cost) gap between Ecodan and other forms of heating will grow.
High Efficiency for New-Build
A new domestic Ecodan 4kW unit has been developed specifically to meet the demands of modern homebuilding techniques.
The unique design of the Ecodan QUHZ air source heat pump delivers efficient hot water whilst still providing renewable heating to answer the high hot water, low heating requirement of highly insulated homes.
Designed specifically for use in commercial properties, our larger renewable Ecodan products (CAHV and CRHV) use proven heat pump technology to deliver effective, low carbon heating to provide a simple solution that can replace traditional systems.
Heating accounts for more than half of the total energy consumed by an average commercial property, so this is the obvious area to target to make the required difference.
The Ecodan CAHV air source heat pump is already used in schools and commercial premises such as showrooms to provide reliable renewable heating. It is also acting as a community heating system for 24 homeless flats in London and is being specified in more projects as the full potential of the product’s adaptability is realised.
District & Community Heating
With the official opening of Kingston Heights by Edward Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and the Environment, heat pumps have demonstrated that they can provide effective, low carbon solutions to community heating schemes.
The development uses Mitsubishi Electric’s advanced water sourced heat pumps to provide heating and hot water to 136 modern apartments and heating and cooling to a 142-bed hotel – all supplied with renewable energy from the River Thames.
