Heat Pump Unit

Mitsubishi has released a system to improve a facility's energy efficiency. The system is also designed to surprass efficiency ratings and meet or exceed Energy Star requirements.


Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions (Mitsubishi Electric) has upgraded its commercial Y-series outdoor units, providing end users with a system that increases a facility’s energy efficiency. The Y-series is available in 208/230 V 3-phase or 460 V 3-phase units and has an outdoor temperature range of -4 to 60 F when heating and 23 to 115 F when cooling, an increase from the previous model, which reached only 109 F maximum. Available in three module sizes: P72 (36.25 in.), P96 (48.0625 in.) and P120/P144 (69 in.), the Y-series will exceed proposed ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency ratings for 2010, and sizes 6 to 20 ton meet or exceed Energy Star Light Commercial Requirements. The smallest Y-series PUHY-P72 model can be connected to up to 15 indoor units, and the largest PUHY-P360 model can be connected to up to 50 indoor units.
