Mitsubishi Electricâ€™s Ecodan residential water and space heating product has been featured in the Interbuild â€˜Eco Houseâ€™.
The company claims the products, which use heat pump technology to extract energy from the air outside then transfer it inside the home to heat radiators or water, can offer UK households savings in running costs of over 30% and cuts CO2 emissions by 50% against the most modern gas condensing boilers
John Kellett, general manager of Mitsubishi Electricâ€™s heating department said: â€œWith our product line-up we are confident that we can deliver low carbon heating to the vast majority of UK properties built from the 1970â€™s onwards.
â€œHeating and hot water accounts for over 70% of the energy we use in our homes so if we as a nation can cut this consumption, we can make a real difference to both emissions levels and the fuel bills of hard-pressed households.â€
The Ecodan 5kW is on display at the event’s â€˜Eco Houseâ€™ installation, designed by Woodward Smith Architects and constructed and developed by Loosemore Chartered Building Company, as an example of a sustainable, three-storey family home.
