Mitsubishi adds M series R32 wall mounts

UK: Mitsubishi Electric has unveiled a new entry-level line of wall-mounted air conditioners using the lower GWP refrigerant R32.

The new MSZ-HR units in 2.5kW, 3.5kW and a new 5kW size are said to blend energy efficiency with a compact and stylish design. The series has an ErP cooling efficiency rating of A++.

A direct replacement for Mitsubishi Electric’s R410A MSZ-DM range, the new series comes with an optional wifi capability, enabling control and monitoring of each system using smartphone, tablet or PC via the MELCloud app.

The addition of a weekly timer helps with greater control of scheduling, helping building operators to meet comfort requirements, whilst minimising operational costs.
