Mitsubishi Electric has announced the launch of a new floor console that it says can heat rooms twice as fast as previous models.
The MFZ-KW-VG is a slim, floor-standing air conditioner with RapidHeat technology, which uses advanced sensors with intuitive control logic technology.
The heat technology automatically activates at start-up in low-temperature room conditions, blowing warm air downward before returning into the unit where it reheats the air for a second time. According to Mitsubishi Electric, this process reduces the time required to heat a room.
A multi vane flow function blows warm air upward and downward using three uniquely shaped vanes that are designed for better airflow control and an even heat distribution around the room. They can be customised to the user’s preference if required.
“This console is designed for a more discreet installation,” says National Product Manager at Mitsubishi Electric Australia, Atesh Mani. “The base of the unit is removable so it can be installed in a wall recess.
“This type of installation dramatically reduces the depth of the indoor unit from 215mm to 145mm, a saving of 33 per cent, which can make a real difference for homeowners looking to explore more contemporary design aesthetic for heating.”
According to Mitsubishi, the MF-KW-VG is a popular choice for installations where wall space is minimal such as rooms with lots of glass. The refrigeration piping and electrical connections can be passed through the floor rather than through walls, making it suitable for installation in heritage-listed properties. It can also be considered a heating option for new buildings, renovation projects and fireplace replacements.
In terms of operational decibel levels, the unit tested at 18dBA on heating for the 25 and 35 models.
This new model is part of the expanding line of Mitsubishi Electric air conditioners using R32.
