Mitsubishi Electric moves into heating market
Mitsubishi Electric Living Environmental Systems UK has created a heating division offering hot water and space heating products for the domestic market.
The new division will launch its first heat pump boiler next month and will carry out further launches early in 2008.
The company is confident its new boiler technology will give significant reductions in carbon emissions when compared with current gas, oil or LPG boiler technology and will also offer benefits in performance over other alternative low carbon technologies such as solar panels, wind turbines and biomass boilers.
'With the government's Code for Sustainable Solutions, house builders now have a national standard for sustainable design and construction within new homes,' explained Jason Tinsley, manager of the product marketing and technical section of the new division.
'Few products are available right now that can help developers meet the code's stringent one to six star ratings so we have a real opportunity later this year when we launch products that can immediately help builders achieve a three star rating.'
