Anyone wanting to understand how an air-source heat pump can help reduce their fuel bills and carbon emissions need look no further than YouTube, as Mitsubishi Electric has released a movie explaining how its award-winning Ecodan® system works.
The short, animated film at www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeVJS_SK2fg shows how easy the unit is to install, and how it can work with both radiator systems and underfloor heating, as well as supply all of the hot-water the home needs. Ecodan is ideal for retro-fit and can also help a well-insulated new house achieve Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
With everyone worrying about rising fuel prices, Ecodan can immediately help cut fuel bills by about a third over traditional gas boilers, explains John Kellett, General Manager of the Heating Systems Division.
This is because the system harvests free, renewable energy from the outdoor air so that for every 1kW of electricity it consumes, the home receives at least 3kW of heating energy. This is also why Ecodan qualifies as a renewable technology and why it was recently awarded the European Eco-Label.
