The new performance heat pumps, which meet requirements of future ErP legislation, incorporate a number of advanced features to deliver improved functionality and optimum efficiency. Offering the first single fan 11kW air to water heat pump, the high performance range boasts ultra-quiet operation, with a sound power level as low as 60 DBA making it one of the quietest in the market. Rattling noises caused by vibration are also eliminated with preinsulated flexible hoses absorbing the noise, and anti-vibration feet providing a clever alternative to the usual concrete plinths.

Officially unveiled at the company’s production plant in Menen, Belgium on September 24th, 2013 – the new ‘RHeco’ range is set to help businesses all over the world make huge savings on their energy bills. Delivering up to 109% efficiency at minimum load and 100% at full load, RHeco offers the highest standards available anywhere in the world. This high efficiency means the RHeco will become eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) and when combined with the energy savings made over a heating season, an extremely favourable payback period is achieved. Of course this will significantly help to reduce cost and energy savings – the range also provides massive reductions in CO2 and NOx emissions. enquiry number 933 From Mitsubishi Electric Reznor launches the world’s most efficient industrial condensing heaters Independent year-long trials prove real world performance of renewable Econdan® Mitsubishi Electric has released the results of independently audited data from year-long trials into the performance of its market-leading, Ecodan® air source heat pump system at 23 sites around the UK. The results show that Ecodan achieved an average seasonal performance of 2.9 when measured against the Government’s preferred boundary condition for calculating heat pump performance – known as the Seasonal Performance Factor (SPFH4). The EU defines the renewable threshold as an average seasonal performance of 2.5, when measured against reduced boundary conditions covering the performance of the heat pump in isolation (known as SPFH2). SPFH4 conditions widen the monitoring by including all auxiliary power consumption and this gives a much clearer indication of overall system performance. 15 of the Ecodan sites also achieved an SPFH4 average of 2.98 across the winter of 2011-2012 – one of the coldest on record for decades, and seven of the sites achieved an average of 3.04. “These tests measured all auxiliary power consumption as well as that of the heat pump itself so it gives a much more accurate indication of the overall performance,” explains John Kellett, General Manager of Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan heating range. As calculated by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), Ecodan demonstrated average estimated annual operating cost savings of 8% over a gas condensing boiler, 36% over an oil condensing boiler and 67% over a direct electric heating system. Estimated carbon emission savings of 21%, 41% and 67%, respectively, were also demonstrated and the EST report also shows that after future grid decarbonisation, these carbon savings rise to 85% over gas and 88% over oil. enquiry number 934
