5-14 kW of domestic hot water providing all of your hot water needs. Aside from heating our homes, hot water demands as much as 36% energy use in our homes and drives up the cost of our energy bills. Ecodan hot water cylinders are the ultimate solution for reducing costs and maintaining hot water demand in our homes and light commercial buildings.
Note: Rated capacity is at conditions A2W35. (according to EN14511 )
Ecodan is a highly energy efficient hot water heat pump system utilising a cylinder tank or hydrobox. It is the next level of efficient heating technology to provide the comfort we want in our homes and potable hot water, at the same time reducing carbon emissions and home energy costs. With proven Mitsubishi Electric technology, Ecodan is designed for New Zealand conditions.
Ecodan is flexible in design as it can work stand alone or in conjunction with other systems. Mitsubishi Electric cylinders are pre-plumbed and wired, with FTC5 control, it is easy to design, install, commission and maintain due to its pre-packaged features. It is built for the modern home, it has SD card commissioning and logging and the ability to program settings and energy monitor. BS coating available to protect against corrosive effects of the sea which is ideal for many coastal towns and cities in New Zealand. For areas of hard water prone to scale build up, the Ecodan has scale-top technology which actively decreases scale build up.
It can replace any existing heating system. Its footprint is such that it can fit into any home. Ecodan has leading industry low noise on both the outdoor and indoor units.
Ecodan is also a viable solution for small commercial applications such as offices and retail shops providing heating for the store/office and hot water for staff. With short return on investment this is the perfect economic solution to heating and hot water demand.
By simply using a Mitsubishi Electric Ecodan air source heat pump to provide domestic space heating and hot water, it is possible to reduce your home's running costs and its CO2 emissions.
Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan Complete Packaged and Pre-plumbed Systems are specially designed to integrate Ecodan air source heat pumps with an optimised cylinder, ensuring best performance and reducing installation time and costs.
Mitsubishi Electric’s range of Ecodan air source heat pumps use the latest heat pump technology to provide low cost, low carbon heating and hot water for your home, all year round. Super quiet to run with low maintenance,Ecodan air source heat pumps are quick and easy to install as they are self-contained units only requiring electricity, with no need for gas supplies, flues or ventilation.
The pre-wired and pre-plumbed latest generation packaged cylinder features integrated hydraulic components and advanced user friendly controls. The packaged cylinder provides improved performance with simplified controls.
Mitsubishi Electric’s fifth generation controller (FTC5) includes intelligent room temperature control as standard. This together with advanced weather compensation ensures the system delivers efficient, comfortable heating regardless of the season. FTC5 now also includes energy monitoring showing consumed and produced energy.
Consumer NZ research shows that a well specified and installed heat pump water heater would reduce your hot water bill by two-thirds over standard electric water heating.
Lower costs can provide home owners reassurance that future energy bills will be manageable.
Efficient operation means low energy bills and quicker return on investment where owners install a new heat pump system.
Energy use in domestic households – data from NZGBC.
An Ecodan heat pump system could save up to 35% on your heating and hot water bill per year when compared to gas and direct electric systems. Based on an average New Zealand household, this could be as much as $700.
Return on investment could be within 5 years compared to gas heating and even quicker returns if hot water is utilised too.
Ecodan works more effectively to heat your home compared to conventional heating systems by utilising inverter compressor technology in the heat pump to provide the right amount of heat when you need it.
ZUBADAN New Generation provides powerful heating in cold regions where most heat pumps cannot perform very well. ZUBADAN’s rated heating capacity is maintained even in outdoor temperatures as low as –15°C. That means ZUBADAN can be trusted to provide comfortable heating during severe winter months. Furthermore even faster tank heater times are achieved in low ambient temperatures compared to standard models.

Heat pump systems collect atmospheric heat from the air which is used as a heat source to provide highly efficient heating. For example, a heat pump with a coefficient of performance (COP) of 5.0 uses 1kW of electricity to produce 5kW of useful heat energy.

The Flash Injection Circuit is an original technology. A heat exchange process at point A (heat interchanger) transforms liquid refrigerant into a two-phase, gas-liquid state and then compresses the gas-liquid refrigerant at point B (injection compressor). This circuit secures a sufficient flow rate of refrigerant for heating when outdoor temperatures are very low. Thanks to improving the heat interchanger and introducing a new injection compressor, the Flash Injection Circuit is now more powerful.
Thanks to the unique plate heat exchanger and scale trap technology, a more efficient performance is achieved. In conventional systems, there is a risk of calcium scale building up on the heat-exchange plate if it is exposed to tap water directly. Therefore, it is difficult to use plate-based heat exchangers to heat tap water. To resolve this problem, ecodan is equipped with a “scale trap” that catches homogeneous calcium nuclei in the tap water before it has a chance to grow into large scales, thereby inhibiting build-up in the external heat exchanger. ecodan can use a plate heat exchanger to heat tap water, resulting in much higher domestic hot water performance.
Notice: In the case of special localised conditions such as very hard tap water, please consult a specialist before installation.
Aiming to realise further comfort and energy savings, Mitsubishi Electric is proud to introduce a revolutionary new controller. Our advanced Auto Adaptation function measures the room temperature and outdoor temperature, and then calculates the required heating capacity for the room. Simply stated, the flow temperature is automatically controlled according to the required heating capacity, while optimal room temperature is maintained at all times, ensuring the appropriate heating capacity and preventing energy from being wasted. Further-more, by estimating future changes in room temperature, the system works to prevent unnecessary increases and decreases in the flow temperature.
Accordingly, Auto Adaptation maximises both comfort and energy savings without the need for complicated settings.
