Top cop turns up the heat
Mitsubishi Electric, has launched a new wall-mounted, inverter driven heat pump air conditioning system with an industry high COP of 5.25 in heating and 5.15 in cooling modes.
The M Series, MSZ-FD models demonstrate beyond doubt that smaller air conditioning heating has come of age and extends the possibility of energy efficient heating and cooling to a wider range of properties and applications.
“These models are ideal for the UK climate because they can deliver energy efficient heating for the majority of the year, but can also be used for cooling,” explained Peter Cole, Product Manager for the range. “This is a fairly new concept for us to be promoting these products based primarily on their heating benefits.”
A heat pump extracts free energy from the surrounding air to maximise efficiency. This means that for every 1kW of electricity fed into the system over 5kW of energy is available to heat or cool the space.
The new range will initially have two models available in 2.5 and 3.5 kW sizes but Mitsubishi is planning to add more high COP models to the range later in the year.
