ASHP in older properties

Air source heat pump in older property
Animation demonstrates benefits of renewable technology
Mitsubishi Electric has installed an 8.5kW Ecodan air source heat pump (ASHP) into a virtual three-storey Victorian terrace house to demonstrate how renewable technology can benefit the nation’s older properties.

The installation is part of the Number One Lower Carbon Drive project at the Building Centre, which aims to increase awareness of the UK’s urgent need to retro-fit existing housing stock; ultimately reducing the carbon footprint of homes across the nation.

“As the project develops, viewers will be able to visually cut through the home to see new products in operation,” said Andrew Scoones, director at The Building Centre.  “And, watch the measurable benefits flow throughout the building and compare the before and after effects of installing energy saving measures into the home.”
