Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan QUHZ air source heat pumps have been installed at the Bowling Court apartment building in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, and residents have been reaping the rewards since instillation was completed earlier this year.
Mark Salmon, procurement manager at Hightown Housing Association, said: “The benefits of the Ecodan system, both short and long term, played a big part in our decision to upgrade the heating system at Bowling Court.
“Its flexibility, easy operation, low noise levels and, perhaps most importantly, low running costs will prove popular with our tenants at Bowling Court”.
This popularity is already evident, with one tenant saying that the Ecodan system has reduced her heating bill from £35 a week to £15.
Tenants are able to control their heating and hot water via Wi-Fi with Mitsubishi’s MELCloud application – a built-in energy monitoring system which comes as standard with the Ecodan heat pumps.
They can monitor their energy consumption, set up schedules and timers, get temperature history reports, receive a live weather feed from the Ecodan’s location and share or restrict access to the application. All this helps tenants to better manage their heat and energy usage, lowering their heating costs.
