Air source heat pumps are now covered by Permitted Development under new guidance which came into effect at the start of December 2011. However, in order for the installation to be allowed under these planning regulations, it must comply with the MCS020 Planning Standard and this includes strict guidelines on the noise levels that must be achieved.
Mitsubishi Electric’s range of Ecodan air source heat pumps has just received the official backing of the Noise Abatement Society which has awarded a new ‘Quiet Mark’ of approval to the domestic heating product.
The Quiet Mark is a new badge of approval awarded by the Noise Abatement Society to manufacturers of the quietest products currently available and is validated by the Association of Noise Consultants. Please visit www.quietmark.com for more information.
