Ecodan gets MCS Certification

The commercial Ecodan CAHV water and space heating system from Mitsubishi Electric has received full accreditation for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

The scheme allows building operators to claim back grants against installation of these advanced heat pump systems which have been designed specifically for the unique conditions of the UK commercial heating market. The MCS demonstrates the quality and competence in the technology. In the rapidly growing renewables industry, installers and products that carry the MCS mark are seen as the preferred option in the market place, because MCS is linked to many of the key factors driving demand.

Robust process

“The process for MCS is incredibly robust and also looks at the companies installing this type of equipment so that customers can have real confidence that they will get the renewable benefits and cuts in emissions they expect,” explains Commercial Heating Technical expert, James Timbs-Harrison. The Ecodan CAHV-P500YA-HPB commercial air to water heat pump can supply a building’s domestic hot water and heating. It has been certified under reference number HP0002/11, and joins the 10 residential Ecodan products already certified.

The CAHV unit was launched in February

this year and is already being specified for both new-build and retro-fit projects where a significant element of renewable heating and

building energy efficiency is required by planning regulations.

Easy installation

The system has been designed as a factory- sealed unit to allow for straightforward installation without the need for any refrigeration work on site. The mono-bloc system comes in units of 43kW at -3°C including defrost to deliver space heating and offers the ability to achieve legionella protection of domestic hot water with flow temperatures of up to 70°C without the need for electric backup. The in-built cascade controller enables multiple unit control of up to 16 units to provide a maximum of 688kW of renewable heating for larger buildings. This same controller also optimises the inverter driven compressors to achieve the

highest possible efficiencies from the capacity available. Built-in weather compensation enables better control and increases the efficiency to deliver year-round high performance.


addition to helping new-builds achieve planning permission, the range can be retro- fitted to existing buildings, and will work independently or alongside other heating systems.

The MCS is managed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and is designed to evaluate products and installers against strict criteria for microgeneration technologies, thereby providing greater consumer protection whilst ensuring that grant money is spent effectively. MCS underpins the Low Carbon Buildings Programme.
