Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pumps
Ecodan heating systems are self-contained units which are usually installed in less than 2 days. There are 4 models to choose from including both Monobloc (all-in-one outdoor units) and Split systems which have separate units for indoors and outdoors. You’ll need to consult a professional heat pump engineer who will be able to assess which output size is best for your home and hot water demand.
Mitsubishi PUHZ air source heat pumps can be cascaded, i.e. you can combine up to 6 units to increase your capacity up to as much as 84kW which might be of use to commercial installations. And if you’re looking for a heat pump to work alongside a traditional boiler, the Ecodan PUHZ Split system can work as a hybrid so you have the energy saving benefits of an air source heat pump with the backup of a boiler.

Why Consider a Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pump?
Save Money on Energy Bills
Ecodan air source heat pumps use 1kW of electricity to extract 2.2kW of renewable heat energy from the air and produce a highly efficient output of 3.2kW heat. This heats refrigerant in the system which can then heat your home water. So an air source heat pump from Mitsubishi actually generates 3 times as much energy as it uses; when you compare that to a traditional boiler which turns a maximum 92% of the fuel it uses into energy (with the rest being lost to waste gases), the energy saving potential is clear.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Most of the energy an air source heat pump uses to run comes from the natural air around your home. The small amount of electricity needed to power the heat pump produces only a fraction of the CO₂ emissions produced by a traditional oil or gas boiler. In fact, in some homes a heat pump system can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 50%.
Easy to Maintain
The average life of a boiler is just 8-10 years but as long as your air source heat pump gets an annual service it should need very little maintenance and many can last for up to 25 years.
Heat Your Home All Year Round
Air source heat pumps will work in the worst UK temperatures as they are designed to cope with temperatures as low as -20°C.
Ecodan air source heat pumps are very quiet which means you have much more flexibility in where you can choose to place it. In fact, according to Mitsubishi, the latest PUHZ Ultra Quiet Monobloc has sound pressure levels similar to the average library!
Your Ecodan heat pump is incredibly easy to control with the Mitsubishi Electric MELCloud app. With your smart device you can control both hot water and heating functions and benefit from other features such as frost protection, holiday mode, a 7 day weekly schedule, energy / running costs report and a live weather feed.
Earn Money Through the RHI Scheme
When installed by an MCS accredited company, a Mitsubishi air-to-water heat pump could earn you money through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. The RHI scheme pays owners of eligible renewable heating systems for each unit of energy the heat pump generates for 7 years after it has been commissioned. The exact payments you’ll receive will vary depending on the current tariff, the technology installed and how much energy you generate.
How Much Does a Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pump Cost?
The average cost of installing an air source heat pump system is around £6,000 – £12,000. The exact price you’ll pay will depend on the model and size of the heat pump you choose and which company to carries out the installation.
Once the heat pump is installed you can look forward to many years of energy savings and potential earnings through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme which will go a long way towards repaying your investment.
