Ecodan heat pumps have the potential to reduce a home's CO2 emissions by up to 50%

By simply using a Mitsubishi Electric Econdan heat pump to provide domestic space heating and hot water, it is possible to greatly reduce CO2 emissions. Using proven heat pump technology widely used in the heating and cooling industry. Ecodan upgrades naturally occurring energy from the air and uses this to provide domestic space heating and hot water. Heat pump technology has been used around the world for decades and Mitsubishi Electric have developed this technology for domestic application to produce Ecodan - one of the most advanced, efficient heating systems available today.

User Friendly

From a user's perspective, when compared to traditional means of domestic heating, Ecodan is a easy to install, reduce CO2 emissions by up to 50% and offers a 30% saving on running cost. This is only made possible through the application of the most advance heating technology in production to date. Ecodan provides the perfect solution to help new build homes adhere to The Code for sustainable Homes.

Why Ecodan is more efficient than other forms of heating solutions

With Conventional boilers, 1Kw of input energy provides less than 1 Kw of out put energy heat. With Ecodan, every 1Kw of input energy is converted into an average of 3.6Kw of out put energy or heat, making it more than three times as efficient as conventional boilers and a nature choice for low cost heating and hot water.

The Co-efficient of Performance (COP) of a heat pump is the ratio of the heat delivered, divided by the power consumed. The modern heat pump technology used in Ecodan and given in example has the seasonal COP rating of 3.6.

By 2016, over 720,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum could be saved if all the 200,000 residential properties built each year installed heat pumps. If a heat pump also replaced 10% of the gas boilers sold each year in existing properties, the potential annal saving would increase to over 2 million tonnes of CO2 by 2016.

By transforming the energy found naturally in outdoor air and using that to help provide cost effective heating, we've already established the efficiency of Ecodan and the fact that it 'upgrade' energy. Take that one step further and consider using Ecodan powered by electricity from a renewable energy source such as wind, biomass, solar or tidal and you could have a heating system that is zero carbon rated.

Another advantage with Edocan is its ease of installation and design flexibility. A perfect answer to those wide areas of the UK that are not perhaps on, or likely to be on the National Gas Grid .This negates the need to consider the more costly option of electricity or oil and removes the need to negotiate the enormous expense and disruption of extending the National Gas Grid. What ever the location,simply install Ecodan and enjoy efficient, effective heating
