Air-source heat pumps provide cheap, sustainable heating for your home or commercial premises. They can help reduce your carbon footprint while saving you money. They can also entitle you to payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme for seven years if your property and heating system meets a number of criteria.
One of the most highly regarded ranges of heat pumps is the Mitsubishi Ecodan range. They offer efficient and reliable household heating for domestic consumers.
What is Ecodan heating?
If you’re looking for a modern alternative to a gas boiler or oil-fired central heating then Ecodan heating could be for you. They can be used both on and off the gas grid and only require an electrical connection. It’s a renewable alternative to a gas boiler and can lower your carbon footprint considerably while heating your home and providing you with hot water.
The range is manufactured by Mitsubishi, one of the most innovative global companies, who have invested heavily in renewable technologies. The Ecodan range combines their commitment to quality with innovation and high-levels of user functionality.
Are Mitsubishi air-source heat pumps any good?
The Mitsubishi Ecodan range is one of the most efficient and high-performing heating systems for domestic and commercial properties. The whole range has an A++ ErP Energy Rating Label, which makes it a clean, green alternative to carbon fuelled heating systems.
In energy terms, even the most efficient gas boilers will produce less than 1kW of heat energy for every kW of gas consumed. For a heat pump, the energy source is electricity which it then uses to harvest renewable energy from air outside your property. It does this incredibly efficiently, turning a kW of electrical energy into at least 3kW of heat energy.
If your property is heated by oil then the changes will be even starker. If you’re not on the gas grid and currently use either oil or LPG gas, replacing it with an air source heat pump will considerably reduce your carbon footprint. It also makes life more convenient as you’ll no longer have to place orders for fuel or wait for it to be delivered.
The units are self-contained and easy to install, with 4 models to choose from. A qualified installer will be able to advise which model will best suit your property.
How much do Mitsubishi Ecodan heat pumps cost?
On average, the cost of installing an air source heat pump system ranges from around £6,000 to £12,000. The exact price will depend on the particular model and size of the heat pump you opt for.
