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.

  • Princes LHS were brilliant from start to finish. When I contacted them I had received a quote from a rival company that did not appear quite right and really wasn't thought through properly. Princes LHS were the opposite of that. From initial discussions to the fitting process itself (solar PV and a Powerwall 2) everything was done very well and ahead of the agreed schedule. We're now happily producing meaningful power even in the depths of winter & the Powerwall means that we get to use all of it.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
