The Learning Curve

About Mitsubishi Electric



Mitsubishi Electric Living Environmental Systems is a market leader in providing solutions to heat, cool and ventilate our world. As a major manufacturer of some of the pivotal technologies, we hold the UK’s energy challenges close to our heart. We want to help the nation achieve its climate goals; we want to help individuals and businesses reduce the energy consumption of their buildings, whilst helping to reduce their running costs.

Founded in 1921, with many of those years spent at the forefront of the industry, we have more recently led the way in the use of innovative, energy efficient, heat pump technology. Mitsubishi Electric has evolved, and today our areas of expertise go way beyond advanced air conditioning systems that formed the foundation of our business.

As the need to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions impacts on every sector, the company remains the only manufacturer to reject any major growth in the UK’s residential air conditioning market as unnecessary and unsustainable. Instead, Mitsubishi Electric is leading the market in the provision of low carbon residential heating systems, with its award-winning Ecodan® air source heat pump which can help homes achieve level 3 and 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

In addition to the residential sector, Mitsubishi Electric has used its specialisation in heat pumps to develop a range of Ecodan commercial heating systems which rival traditional heating methods (in terms of performance and acceptability), whilst meeting renewable legislation, cutting running costs and reducing carbon emissions to deliver sustainable, low carbon heating.
