Mitsubishi Electric - Heat Pumps for Heating

Air Source Heat Pumps - Ecodan Heat Pump Systems

Legislation & ErP

Ecodan®, the award-winning renewable air source heat pump system, provides domestic and commercial heating and hot water, cutting annual fuel bills and CO2 emissions.

The 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 A++ rating.

Ecodan is ideal for both new-build and retro-fit projects where the property has been thermally upgraded, making Ecodan suitable for most UK properties.

Meeting Domestic Mass Market Needs

If society is to find sustainable alternatives to traditional gas and oil heating, products must be delivered that are flexible in design, easy for skilled engineers to install and straightforward for building operators to use.

Ecodan has been specifically designed to answer these needs, with a range that offers the ability to provide heating from 4kW to 14kW for both residential and commercial application as well as in new-build and retro-fit situations.

The ultra-quiet Ecodan also virtually eliminates the need for planning permission.

The fifth generation of Ecodan includes a new range of cylinders using a completely new way of heating the water in domestic situations, with a plate heat exchanger and patented Scale-Stop technology to eliminate the effect of limescale.

All the developments have focused on improving hot water recovery efficiency and time, and ease of installation and use.

Mitsubishi Electric has also introduced remote energy monitoring on every Ecodan that leaves the factory, with the company believing that this is key to demonstrating the effectiveness of heat pumps and helping home owners qualify for incentive payments.

The range offers three different options for homeowners:

Standard Level which is pre-installed at the factory, offering remote energy monitoring using partial estimation of energy use;

Level Two which includes the addition of an electric meter;

Level Three which adds a Metering and Monitoring Service Package (MMSP) heat meter, enabling homeowners to receive an additional RHI payment of £230 per year for seven years.

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.

Commercial Heating

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, providing 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 products are now proving themselves in schools, offices, showrooms, in farming and in almost any situation calling for reliable, renewable heating.

Ecodan is not only providing the heating for the Rhino Pool at Edinburgh Zoo, it is also acting as a community heating system for 24 flats for a homeless charity in London and is being specified in more projects as the full potential of the product’s adaptability is realised.

The Ecodan CAHV heat pump boiler system delivers reliable heating with design flexibility and comes in units of 43kW (@ -3°C), to offer space heating and sanitary hot water up to 70°C. It is also available with multiple unit control to provide 688kW of renewable heating.

District & Community Heating

Ecodan is being used to deliver community heating to the multi award-winning Kingston Heights project, which sees 132 apartments and a 142-bed hotel get their renewable heating from the River Thames.

For situations offering the scope for water or ground source heat pumps, Ecodan offers up to 960kW of renewable heating and water flow temperatures of up to 65°C.

In addition to being suitable for water source application such as rivers and aquifers plus ground source, whether through slinkies or boreholes, the system can take waste heat from server cooling or industrial process.

Ecodan® Heat Pumps

Ecodan harvests renewable energy from the outdoor air, ground or open water and upgrades it to provide heating and hot water for homes and commercial properties.

With Ecodan, for every 1kW of energy fed in, you get at least 3.2kW of heat energy out, because the air source heat pump harvests at least 2.2kW of renewable energy from the ambient air. This gives Ecodan an average Co-efficient Of Performance (COP) of 3.2 across the year.

Unlike many other air source heat pumps, Ecodan’s advanced inverter controls regulate the energy consumption to ensure that Ecodan only consumes the exact energy needed at any given time to give a constant supply of hot water and heating. This also makes Ecodan super quiet – reflected in the fact that it has received the official backing of the Noise Abatement Society which has awarded a ‘Quiet Mark’ of approval to the domestic heating range.
