Whether replacing an outdated unit or installing a residential heat pump for the first time, there has never been a better time to invest in a Mitsubishi Zuba.
A heat pump is installed outside your property to deliver efficient heating and cooling throughout the year. They’re practical, reliable, cost-effective, and a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. However, you will only see the best results if you select the right heat pump for your home. The Mitsubishi Zuba is the perfect solution. Here’s everything you need to know about the advanced system.
Why is it important to consider capacity maintenance when choosing a cold-climate heat pump?
When selecting a heat pump for cold climates, capacity maintenance should be one of your first attributes. Knowing where to start buying your first heat pump (or even replacing an old unit) can be confusing. However, with the industry showing annual growth of 9.5%, it is evident that many homeowners are paying attention to this efficient HVAC solution.
Capacity maintenance refers to the ability of a heat pump to maintain its heating
capacity in cold weather. As temperatures fall, the efficiency of a heat pump can decrease and cause a lower heating capacity. Capacity maintenance relates to the technologies and precautions that have been made to ensure a heat pump can keep performing at its rated capacity.
All heat pumps will lose some capacity in cold conditions, so you should always check the capacity maintenance of any prospective purchase. Most units will lose between 20% and 50% of their capacity at -15°C, with those figures sliding further as temperatures drop.
However, the Mitsubishi Zuba Central maintains 100% capacity at -15°C and only loses 20% at -25°C. This makes it an ideal heat pump for anyone living in Ottawa’s cold climates.
Why are the Mitsubishi Zuba Central heat pumps considered the best for cold climates?
When buying a heat pump for your home, hiring an experienced contractor like Advanced HVAC in Ottawa will guarantee a great installation. However, it would be best to have 100% confidence in your selected product. Here are just five reasons why the Mitsubishi Zuba Central is #1.
Capacity maintenance ensures the heat pump remains efficient in the cold thanks to its industry-leading inverter technology. While they are powered by electricity, this energy is only used for moving heat rather than actively heating or cooling the air. The Zuba Central is, therefore, one of the most affordable HVAC sources on the market – easily outperforming natural gas, electric, propane, and oil heating.
Given the costs of heating a home in Canada via other methods, the highly efficient Mitsubishi heat pump is a step in the right direction.
The Mitsubishi Zuba Central stands out from the crowd thanks to its high-quality materials and components designed to last. Reliable performance levels shouldn’t be limited to the heat pump’s ability to handle difficult climates. It should also be built to last. On average, the heat pumps should not need replacing or significant repairs for 15 years, particularly if you complete basic maintenance and servicing.
Added longevity makes the Zuba Central a tremendous long-term financial investment that additionally helps you avoid the frustration of future fault-fixing issues.
You already know that the Zuba Central can operate at 100% capacity even at temperatures of -15°C. However, it’s important to understand why they operate so well. The Mitsubishi heat pumps boast several great features, including a defrost mode and a high refrigerant charge that, when used correctly, will deliver the very best performance on the market.
Some other models on the market may be close to matching the Mitsubishi Zuba, and nothing beats it, at least not for a cold climate.
While they may be installed outside your property, loud heat pumps can disrupt your home life and annoy the neighbors. The Mitsubishi Zuba Central operates with minimal noise, making it a great choice regardless of where you want to install it. The Zuba runs at around 52 dB, while an average air conditioning unit operates at about 80 dB.
The unit is louder than a conversation but quieter than most hairdryers. When you consider that it’s outside, too, the impact on daily activities is non-existent.
When introducing home technology to your property, you must know it can keep pace with changing landscapes. The Zuba Central features energy-saving modes, programmable thermostats, and a variety of advanced tools that deliver great customizability. Other models on the market may leave you worried about getting left behind, but you can be confident when purchasing this unit.
Remote control makes life easier for all users. As such, the Mitsubishi heat pump is the ultimate choice for your home in 2023 and beyond.
