Mitsubishi air source heat pumps

Mitsubishi has been a household name in the field of electrical appliances since 1921.

The company is now a leading global manufacturer of environmental technologies including Ecodan heat pumps.

Ecodan air source heat pumps

Mitsubishi designed its Ecodan range to suit the UK climate. Its inverter-driven heat pump technology is efficient and economical even in temperatures as low as -25°C.

Ecodan is an established technology that has been developed and improved over many years and is now in its 5th generation.

Financial incentives

You’ll pay only 5% VAT on the purchase and installation of your Ecodan heat pump because it is a low-carbon technology.

If you installed a traditional heating system you’d pay the standard rate of VAT.

Ecodan is energy efficient and will lower your energy bills; for every 1kW of electricity Ecodan uses, it provides at least 3.2kW of heat output.

Heat pumps are eligible for payments under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Is my home suitable for an air source heat pump?

Ecodan is suitable for most types of properties including flats and apartments as well as terraced, semi-detached and detached houses and bungalows.

Existing homes

Ecodan can be properly retro-fitted to the vast majority of houses from 1950 onwards, which many other air source heat pumps can not.

You can replace any oil, electric or gas heating system with an Ecodan.

You can also choose to have a hybrid system with a secondary heat source e.g. a gas boiler, which the Ecodan system will control intelligently.

Installing an air source heat pump is covered by Permitted Development legislation so you won’t need planning permission.

New build homes

Ecodan QUHZ is Mitsubishi’s latest heat pump system and ideal for new build homes.

Modern building standards mean new-build properties are well insulated and so need less heating than older homes.

But new-build homes need the same amount of hot water as older properties.

Ecodan QUHZ has been specifically designed to be highly efficient at producing hot water while providing a lower amount of space heating.
