Helps Residential Builders Exceed Homeowner Expectations
SUWANEE, Georgia, May 28, 2014 - Six years ago, the World Green Building Trends SmartMarket Report from McGraw-Hill Construction found that the top driver for green building was "doing the right thing." The current report, however, found that "business drivers such as client and market demand are the key factors" influencing builders to use sustainable practices and products in their work.
To meet this homeowner demand, Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric) developed the Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i®) MSZ-FH models, the most energy-efficient ductless cooling and heating systems on the market. Featuring an industry-leading efficiency rating of 30.5 SEER, the H2i MSZ-FH models are the latest innovation from Mitsubishi Electric, the first manufacturer to introduce ductless zoning technology to the U.S. more than 30 years ago.
"Energy efficiency is no longer a fringe product benefit. Homeowners now demand that the products in their homes be energy efficient," says Mike Smith, senior product marketing manager, Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division. "The expectation is that energy-efficient solutions will save on rising utility costs."
Since heating and cooling costs are the largest contributor to home energy bills (nearly half of total costs), energy-efficient HVAC solutions should be a top priority.
"Higher SEER ratings will lead to lower electrical costs," says Smith. "Ductless cooling and heating systems typically use up to 40 percent less energy than conventional central air systems and window units. We expect the H2i MSZ-FH models to exceed that figure. This is the solution residential building professionals need, and we're confident that the market will respond accordingly."
According to a 2013 report from Navigant Research, ductless cooling and heating systems will account for nearly 30 percent of all energy-efficient HVAC systems' revenue by 2020 - a 130 percent increase from 2013.
"Ductless cooling and heating is simply the way of the future when it comes to home comfort. These systems are ideal solutions for a growing number of applications in a widening range of geographic locations," says Smith.
Benefits for Residential Building Professionals
H2i MSZ-FH models will be available through Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division distribution channels in May 2014. For more information, click here.
