Mitsubishi launches air-source heat pumps with up to 440% SPF
The line-up for the self-contained outdoor units now boasts 5kW, 8.5kW, 11.2kW and 14kW units, to make Ecodan suitable for almost any situation.
Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new 11.2kW Ecodan air-source heat pump to join the existing three monobloc models. The line-up for the self-contained outdoor units now boasts 5kW, 8.5kW, 11.2kW and 14kW units, to make Ecodan suitable for almost any situation.
David McConnell, heating products manager at Mitsubishi Electric Ireland, said: “We are constantly reviewing our line-up to ensure that we deliver what the market wants. This new model slots nicely into the range to ensure we can deliver renewable Ecodan heating to almost any home in the country.”
The new PUHZ-W112VHA model is a single phase Harp database and MCS-certified 11.2kW unit that shares the ability to cascade up to six units of the same output, allowing Ecodan systems to offer a capacity range from 5kW through to 84kW. The second Ecodan unit launched is a 4.5kW split unit which boasts an impressive Harp database SPF of 440% - a significant advantage in terms of attaining high BER scores and achieving Part L compliance. With low maintenance and quiet running recognised by the Noise Abatement Society, the units operate with outside temperatures as low as -20C and also offer a bivalent function, allowing them to be used in a hybrid situation with an existing traditional boiler. To ease installation, fast on-site commissioning and logging is available via the pre-programmed SD card, and for the building owners, Ecodan can be controlled by the MELCloud Wi-Fi remote controller.
McConnell added: “As the heat pump market grows, installers are becoming aware of the different levels of technology and support available from manufacturers and here at Mitsubishi Electric, we are determined to continue to lead the way towards reliable renewable heating.”
The Ecodan heat pump range is available in Ireland via Mitsubishi Electric Ireland, and in the UK via Mitsubishi Electric UK.
