Efficient air curtains
Mitsubishi Electric has developed a new range of heat pump air curtains that are fully compatible with City Multi VRF air conditioning to offer retail, hotel and commercial buildings a highly efficient way of maintaining a comfortable climate for customers and staff without compromising on performance.
The new range can be used on standard heat pumps or heat recovery systems and can achieve COP efficiency levels in excess of 5.0, when linked to a City Multi heat recovery system using excess heating or cooling energy from the overall building system.
The ten models in the range offer between 9 and 21kW of heat output and link to a City Multi air conditioning system to help lower CO2 emissions and reduce running costs. Included in the range are new 1 metre wide air curtains which have been specially designed for the thinner doorways and entrances more commonly found in offices and smaller retail outlets. The range is also available as either free-standing or recessed models.
Air curtains have long been used to ensure that the busy entrances of commercial buildings suffer from minimal energy losses when the door is open.
