​Mitsubishi Electric has launched additional R32 models with the new MSZ-AP range of wall-mounted units that blend energy efficiency with a modern, white design. 

“These three new models give even more choice for installers and make R32 available for even more situations”, explains Carl Dickinson, product specialist for the company. “We are looking to make it as easy as possible for the industry to transition away from existing refrigerants so that everyone can play their part in delivering energy efficiency in ways that minimise the impact on the environment.” 

The 2.5, 3.5 and 5kW models are rated either A+++ or A++ and boast outstanding benefits including industry-leading low noise levels and a built-in W-Fi interface. 

The range offers highly energy efficient operation with the units all utilising R32 refrigerant, which has a much lower global warming potential (GWP) than R410A. 

“The price of R410A is also rising significantly month by month so we want to ensure that both customers and installers not only have an alternative, but also get the added benefit of increased performance and advanced controls,” adds Dickinson.

The built in Wi-Fi interface within the MSZ-AP range enables the full control and monitoring via the company’s MELCloud app, delivering remote control and interrogation of any system.

The units include double vanes to distribute airflow evenly throughout the room and offer weekly timers as standard to provide greater control of scheduling.

“These fantastic new models also incorporate our Replace Technology which means that in many cases they can be swopped for older systems utilising existing pipework,” adds Dickinson. “This makes them suitable for both new installations and upgrades and we are expecting a lot of interest from the market.”
