An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) is a refrigerant based system, like your refrigerator at home. The system can absorb low grade heat from the air, and raise its temperature efficiently to be suitable for space heating and/or hot water. Ecodan is an air source heat pump system and can provide water temperatures of up to 60°C (without backup electric heater) in ambient temperatures as low as -25°C*.
The Ecodan heat pump range is suitable for everything from a small domestic to a large application. Using proven inverter driven heat pump technology to deliver effective, low carbon heating and hot water, Mitsubishi Electric’s award winning Ecodan systems provide a simple, renewable solution that rivals traditional heating systems:
For every 1kW of electricity fed into an Ecodan heat pump unit (i.e.the outdoor part of the Ecodan heating system), you could get at least 3kW of heating energy. The overall system efficiency and energy savings will depend on the comparison with your current heating system, satisfactory system design and installation, and operational settings i.e. how you use the heating system.
