Mitsubishi’s Sustainability Mission
Mitsubishi Electric aims to make the world a better place by creating and marketing energy-efficient all-electric products and systems. The objective is to reduce the use of fossil fuels in the heating and cooling industry.
Through the electrification of residential and commercial heating and cooling appliances, Mitsubishi Electric contributes to environmental sustainability. We continue to advance solutions that decrease waste, promote renewable resources, improve energy efficiency, and eliminate fossil fuel dependence. In all of Mitsubishi’s operations, we are committed to increasing energy efficiency. The goal is to align personal comfort with the larger good of society.
About Mitsubishi Electric
Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) is a leading provider of ductless and VRF (variable refrigerant flow) systems in the United States and Latin America. With unmatched energy efficiency, performance, and control, it’s never been easier to make any home, any building, anywhere more comfortable and energy-efficient. Plus, the all-electric systems help mitigate climate change by lowering your carbon footprint!
Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i®) technology from Mitsubishi Electric is a significant advancement in heat pump technology. Even when external temperatures are as low as -13° F, H2i uses an upgraded compressor technology to deliver heat. You don’t need additional heat sources or separate heating and cooling systems to keep your home comfortable in the cool in the summer. On the other hand, warm air is delivered instantaneously in the colder seasons thanks to Hot-Start technology.
When looking for a cost-effective heating and cooling system for your house, you’ve probably come across the term “mini-split.” Mini-splits are incredibly energy-efficient, dependable, and environmentally responsible ways to improve your home’s comfort while consuming very little energy and emitting zero emissions. They’re ideal for updating individual rooms or building a new home because they come in single-zone and multi-zone configurations.
These air-conditioning or heat-pump systems are divided into two functional components: an external condenser/compressor unit and an internal air-handling unit, as the name suggests. In comparison to traditional systems, these components are smaller (or “mini”). The third component is the system controller, which can be a hand-held remote or a wall-mounted-style thermostat. There’s also an app that lets you manage your temperature from anywhere on your smart device!
Depending on the application, two small refrigerant pipes and control/power wire connect each ductless or ducted indoor unit to the outdoor unit, customarily routed through a three-inch opening in the wall or ceiling. The interior and outside units constantly communicate with one another, transmitting current conditions and altering performance to keep the temperature where you want it. Mitsubishi Electric mini-splits benefit from INVERTER-driven compressor technology, which improves efficiency and dependability. This energy-saving variable-speed technology allows the motor to quickly ramp up or slow down to maintain the desired set temperature.
Another benefit of ductless mini-splits is the ability to divide your home into different comfort zones instead of a traditional central system, which uses a single giant air handler to blast air through large and complex ductwork to all rooms.
Indoor ductless mini-split units are placed directly in the spaces they serve. Single-zone mini-splits can be used in specific areas of the house to address hot or cold spots, as well as room additions, without having to replace your existing system. You can also replace your previous system with a multi-split, which allows you to link up to eight interior units to a single outdoor unit. One can adjust temperature and airflow based on the number of people in the room and how comfortable they are. You can also save electricity by turning off units in unoccupied rooms.
Mini-splits and multi-splits are modular, allowing you to tailor a system to your home’s exact requirements. To begin, think of all of the different comfort zones you’d like to build. You can divide your home into as many zones as you want. A “zone” can be a single room or a group of rooms. For example, you might choose to classify the master suite as a separate zone, while a family area connected to the kitchen is treated as a third zone.
Ductless indoor units may be readily constructed to fit into any area, and you can choose from various styles (and colors), including wall-, floor-, and ceiling-mounted units. With larger zones, Mitsubishi’s ducted air handlers provide you with more design options.
