Ecodan air source heat pumps are ideal for use in a variety of house sizes or styles and its carefully developed control system is designed to work perfectly to provide hot water to either traditional radiators or under floor heating systems.
Traditionally heat pumps have been seen as only suitable for under floor heating, however with the advanced control system of Ecodan and its ability to provide optimum variable flow temperature control, radiators can now be easily provided with the hot water they need and prove to be a very efficient option.
The Ecodan air source heat pump system consists of an external box which is fitted to your outside wall. It harvests renewable, low grade energy from the outdoor air and upgrades this into useful heat to supply a home with hot water and heating. For every 1kW of electricity fed into an Ecodan heat pump unit (i.e. the outdoor part of the Ecodan heating system) you could get at least 3kW of heating energy. The overall system efficiency and energy savings will depend on the comparison with your current heating system, satisfactory system design and installation, and operational settings i.e. how you use the heating system.
The Ecodan heat pump unit (i.e. the outdoor part of the Ecodan heating system) can work all year round even if the outdoor temperature should drop as low as -25ºC.
The Ecodan range of air source heat pump systems have been developed by Mitsubishi Electric specifically for the UK and bring advanced, inverter-driven technology refined in the commercial heating sector to your home.
Efficiency comparison and any energy saving will depend on comparison with your current heating system, satisfactory system design and installation, and operational settings i.e. how you use the heating system.
Ecodan model PUHZ-HW140VHA/YHA only, PUHZ-W50VHA and PUHZ-W85VHA Ecodan models have guaranteed operating lower limits of -15ºC and -20ºC respectively.
