An impressive number of enquiries from both residential and commercial developers and specifiers at this year’s Ecobuild exhibition, is an encouraging sign for the building services industry, according to Mitsubishi Electric.
The manufacturer showcased its full range of heating and air conditioning heat pumps at the event, and was delighted with the interest received.
“We were impressed with the quality of enquiries we received this year, especially the level of interest in both commercial heat pumps and air conditioning,” said marketing communications manager for the company’s air conditioning division, Sharon Oliver.
“That is so encouraging for us as we know that our technology can have a significant impact on many different types of buildings, old and new, in each case lowering carbon emissions and fuel bills.”
Mitsubishi Electric’s stand exhibits included the market-leading Ecodan® range of air source heat pumps, and state-of-the-art air conditioning systems that can simultaneously heat and cool, but can also transfer heat around a building supplying all the hot water a business needs.
And visitors were also shown the company’s range of advanced control systems, which can link heating and air conditioning units to other building systems to offer advanced, energy saving control.
In addition, members of the team held a special CPD-accredited seminar focusing on the application of heat pumps in community heating schemes and domestic situations, and a seminar on the specification and performance monitoring of air source heat pumps.
Oliver said: “Taking time to attend trade shows in today’s market is more difficult these days, both for visitors and manufacturers who are understandably focused on their day jobs. But heat pumps offer long-term financial benefits by reducing running costs, so it makes financial sense for businesses to seriously consider them.
“We firmly believe those visitors who came to our stand at Ecobuild appreciated the level of expertise and personal service our team was able to offer.”
