Eco-comfort Technology: Energy Efficient Air Conditioners
Our eco-comfort technology
is friendly to you and the planet.
- Industry-leading eco-comfort
technology is built into every system.
- We care about our environment, and our
products reflect that concern.
- Our products are one of the Top 10
Product award winners for 2012, awarded by BuildingGreen.
refrigerant: Environmentally friendly R410A refrigerant
offers zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and allows for higher heat
transfer coefficient (COP). This innovative feature means a
reduction in equipment size, a
reduction in piping size, and higher pressure for greater
performance. Smaller equipment also means less impact on the
environment at the end of the product's life cycle.
Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating products follow standards
and guidelines as set forth
by the ENERGY STAR, EPA, AHRI, UL, ASHRAE, ETL, and ISO.
design: Our air
conditioners are specially designed to allow for easy cleaning,
efficient disassembly, and
more practical recycling. The number of parts used in indoor units
has been reduced by adopting
modular components, a process which also simplifies materials
separation for recycling. To
date as much as 84 percent of the materials used to build a Mr.
Slim system is recyclable.
energy usage: Mitsubishi Electric INVERTER zoning
systems smartly deliver only the cooling and heating capacity needed, unlike a
traditional full-power ON cooling and heating system. Individual
indoor air handlers, ductless or ducted, are installed within the zone. These air handlers
measure the load for that specific zone and for added efficiency deliver only the capacity
needed directly to the space compared to energy lost in long
ductwork runs. If a zone is
not being used, you do not have to condition that space (or you can
individually set it back). Smarter sensing technology and microprocessors enhance the
system's ability to measure room temperature accurately for added
comfort, performance and efficiency.
impact on landfills: All Mitsubishi Electric air-conditioning
products use long-life washable filters.
Because our systems help you reduce your energy consumption
in your home, you are doing your part to leave less of a footprint
on the environment, all while saving money on your energy
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation
embraces the Environmental Vision 2021 initiative, which sets
dramatic goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (for example:
reducing Carbon Dioxide emissions from product usage by
30%), recycling resources, and raising environmental awareness by
2021. It should be noted that while many corporations are joining
the "green" movement today, the Environmental Vision 2021
initiative was created by Mitsubishi Electric in 1991 as a
thirty-year effort. Click

We even promote sustainability
through our distributor network by offering training classes that
instruct participants on the proper methods of installing systems
and handling and recovering refrigerants. The company provides
increased warranties for contractors who complete commissioning
reports that confirm proper system installations.
