In the heat pump world, no two brands are more well-known than Fujitsu and Mitsubishi. Homeowners and professionals trust these benchmarks. Both companies have been making heat pumps for long enough to have developed independent innovations in the technology.
The choice to install a heat pump is an expensive one. It is worth doing your research to figure out which unit is going to be the most effective for your space and your needs.
Things to Consider
The brand of your heat pump should be considered secondary to the actual requirements you have of it. Before you start looking at what specific model you are going to get, develop an idea of what would be perfect for you. Would you like something that works for your entire building or for a singular room? Do you want the system to be easy to access, such as a floor mounted system? Alternatively, would you like the system recessed into the ceiling to avoid compromising your aesthetic? Would you like something as quiet as possible for your office meeting room.
Another crucial aspect to get your head around is the outside temperature range of your building. Things like the average minimum temperature throughout winter and maximums during summer are important numbers to know when you are discussing your options with an expert. Of course, your local expert will be across these numbers for your area but there may still be variations based upon specific conditions.
Advantages of a Mitsubishi System
Mitsubishi Electric System heat pumps come with a 5-year warranty. They also utilise a stress-free Wi-Fi control option, meaning you don’t need to worry about losing a fiddly remote. Every phone and tablet is a potential controller. Mitsubishi produces heat pumps for every size and application.
Recently, they have added rapid heating to their floor mounted series. This means that air is run over the heating coils twice before being released into the room. In some instances, this has been shown to halve the heating time. They have also recently diversified into producing units in different colours and finish designs, so you don’t have resign yourself to a tacky white unit.
Advantages of a Fujitsu System
Fujitsu heat pump installations come with a 6 year warranty, which is slightly longer than Mitsubishi’s. Fujitsu puts energy into delineating their product lines based upon functionality and aesthetics. The Classic Series is designed to be easy to use and efficient. The Lifestyle Series are the most energy efficient with a consistent design approach so that multiple units match throughout a building. The E3 Series offers a sleek, stylish finish with additional functionality options.
