A new animation from Mitsubishi Electric is highlighting how commercial premises can benefit from reliable, renewable heating to help reduce energy bills whilst also qualifying for 20 years of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments.
“Over half the emissions from a typical commercial property are due to water and space heating and finding ways to reduce energy here can make a real difference to people bills and the nation’s carbon reduction targets,” explains Graham Temple, marketing manager for the company’s range of Ecodan commercial heating systems.
Heat pumps are recognised by both EU and UK Governments as renewable because they maximise the amount of heating for every kilowatt of electricity consumed.
The short animation focuses on two renewable heat pump products in the market-leading Ecodan range, with the packaged, Monobloc CAHV air source system and the CRHV ground or water-source solution.
Both will connect to radiators or underfloor heating systems and can work independently or in conjunction with other heating systems.
The units are also modular, meaning they can be installed in phases to increase design flexibility and will work in rotation to match demand and prolong equipment life.
The air source is available up to 688kW and the ground/water source will deliver 960kW, making them ideal for many commercial buildings, whether new-build or refurbishments.
“We’ve used a school in the animation, but the principles also apply to almost any commercial building owner who wants to reduce energy bills and receive RHI payments,” adds Temple.
