Air Source Heat Pumps and Low Carbon Heating
The award-winning Ecodan® range of air source heat pumps from Mitsubishi Electric can reduce running costs by over 30% over modern gas boilers and cut household emissions by up to 50%.
Even greater savings are possible against older gas boilers, oil, LPG and direct electric and Ecodan can be fitted by a qualified plumber who has been on the one-day accreditation course. Installing Ecodan can help new-build homes achieve Level 3 and 4 of the Code for sustainable homes.
Ecodan works by harvesting renewable energy from the outdoor air and upgrading it into useful heating energy. This means that for every 1kW of electricity consumed, it will deliver over 3kW or more of heating energy. This is known as a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 3.0.
All air source heat pump manufacturers list the performance levels of their equipment but only Mitsubishi Electric has published the results of extensive live tests – undertaken over the winter in the UK (with temperatures of -9ºC recorded).
These demonstrate that the Ecodan range can deliver the year-round performance needed and involved all three Ecodan models, retro-fitted to a small 3-bed terraced house, a 4-bed semi, and a large 5-bed detached home, working with both radiators and underfloor heating.
Ecodan delivered real time COP’s ranging from 3.0 to 3.33, showing that around 2.33kW of renewable energy is being harvested from the surrounding air for every 1kW of electricity used.
Air source heat pumps do offer a real hope of affordable, low carbon, mass market heating for Britain, but not all systems are as quiet, effective, efficient and as easy to install as Ecodan.
