Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning
At the heart of ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is ‘heat pump’ technology. To cool your home in summer, the heat pump transfers heat from the inside of the home to the outside. In winter, the process is reversed for heating, moving heat from outside to inside your home. This process of heat transfer makes reverse cycle air conditioning the most energy efficient way to heat your home. Some models are up to 270% more efficient than conventional heating systems. This means that reverse cycle air conditioners are economical to operate, and safe to use.
At Mitsubishi Electric’s far reaching research and development programs are designed to enhance lifestyles. In fact, 5% of our net sales goes towards researching and developing ways we can maximise our contributions to society and improve lifestyles. We target technologies that save on raw material, improve efficiency, consumption and cut down on waste.
Research and development
Mitsubishi Electric engages in a wide range of R&D efforts to continually offer better products, especially in comfort and air flow. Air flow can significantly effect comfort levels, as well as human health and energy saving. Comfort levels are analysed under various simulated weather and climate conditions, including snowfall and outside
air temperatures ranging from -25°C to 50°C, at our site- adjustable “Residential Comfort Testing Laboratory”. Rather than depending on sometimes fuzzy human responses, the laboratory measures the degree of comfort using a NASA-developed thermal mannequin that generates heat just as a human body does. To learn more about real settings, we constructed “Amenity Home”, a special model house that allows the performance of air conditioners to be experienced. In addition, the company’s extensive global network gathers information and directs marketing efforts toward the development of high-quality air conditioners that meet the particular needs of the market where they are to be installed.
