Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has announced the launch of its new propane heat pump for residential applications, the first of its kind in the market. The product, dubbed the MHI-VLE, is designed to provide energy-efficient cooling and heating solutions for homes and other areas with limited access to traditional electricity sources.
The MHI-VLE is equipped with a rotary compressor, capable of providing both cooling and heating, and a propane vaporizer, which can be used to convert propane gas into heat. In addition, the system includes a gas safety system, which is designed to improve safety and reduce the risk of gas leakage.
The MHI-VLE is capable of producing an average of 3.7 kW of heating and cooling power, with a maximum output of 4.5 kW. This is more than enough to meet the needs of an average-sized home, while still providing a reasonable amount of energy-efficiency. The system also features a variable-speed motor and a highly efficient heat exchanger, both of which improve energy-efficiency and reduce operating costs.
The MHI-VLE is designed to be easy to install, and is capable of connecting to both indoor and outdoor units. The system features a variable-speed fan and a humidity sensor, both of which further enhance energy-efficiency.
MHI has stated that the MHI-VLE is a reliable and efficient way to provide cooling and heating to homes and other areas with limited access to traditional electricity sources. The company is optimistic that the product will appeal to consumers who are looking for energy-efficient solutions to their home heating and cooling needs.
