This winter’s polar vortex has soured many people on the idea of using a heat pump to heat their homes. Heat pumps are extremely efficient at temperatures above 20 F, but once it starts to get colder than that, their efficiency and effectiveness starts to drop off dramatically. We’ve been feeling temperatures in the single digits recently, and some people who currently use heat pumps may be wondering if they need to make the switch to a furnace.
Mitsubishi’s INVERTER Changes All That
Imagine sitting comfortably inside the house while it’s -13 F outside. Or your heat pump working at full efficiency when the temperature gets down to 5 F. Hyper-Heating INVERTER (h2i) technology makes this possible! With an outdoor unit that recollects normally wasted heat energy, the system overcomes the most common issues with heat pumps and allows it to keep your home warm no matter what the outside temperature. In addition, it allows heat outputs comparable to gas furnaces. One of the most common issues people have with heat pumps is that they blow out cooler air than people are used to. Heat pumps with INVERTER technology pump out air as warm as 100 F – 110 F, even when the outdoor temperature dips into the single digits and below!
Unlike your standard fixed-speed or staged heat pumps, the INVERTER-driven compressor in the h2i adjusts its speed precisely to match the load requirements within each zone. This allows the compressor to provide constant comfort all year long.
|INVERTER Technology||Conventional Technology|
|Precise rotation speed control provides comfortable, consistent room temperatures||Has uncomfortable temperature fluctuations|
|High rotation speed provides fast cooling and heating||Takes a long time to reach your desired temperature|
|Low rotation speed keeps the starting current low, consuming less energy||Requires heavy energy usage every time the compressor turns on|
