What is Mitsubishi Hyper Heating?
Mitsubishi Hyper Heating is what we call a cold climate heat pump that heats & cools your home without the use of fossil fuels. These systems are using cutting edge technology that eliminates the use of fossil fuels and dramatically reduces the monthly cost of operation.
Will a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating System Also Work as an Air Conditioner?
A Mitsubishi Hyper Heating System – also works as an air conditioner, (heat pump) is a standalone, two-component appliance that uses refrigeration technology and electricity to provide heating and cooling for homes, businesses and other applications. A heat pump has two components – a condenser unit that most often sits outside of a home that produces the heating or cooling, and an indoor unit that passes hot or cool air into the home. Because the condenser and air handler are separated or “split” by refrigerant line, heat pumps may sometimes be referred to as “mini-splits.” Heat pumps offer extraordinarily high efficiency rates, as well as the opportunity to provide heating and cooling without needing duct work in the home (duct work can be utilized) because duct work is not required, you may hear heat pumps referred to as “ductless.”

What are the benefits of having a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating System?
Because a Mitsubishi Hyper Heat system uses electricity for power rather than for the generation of heat, it offers a remarkably high efficiency rate. When using traditional resistive electric heat – such as electric baseboard or space heaters, for instance – the amount of heat generated is proportional to the amount of electricity used: one unit of heat per unit of electricity for 100% efficiency.
With a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating system, the efficiency rate goes up dramatically. Electricity consumed is only used to power the two fans (evaporator and condenser), compressor, and pump to concentrate heat outside and bring it into your home. Mitsubishi Hyper Heating is capable of providing more than 3 units of heat for every unit of electricity used for efficiency rates over 300%. With New York’s average winter temperatures of 24.5 degrees, the seasonal efficiency rate of the Mitsubishi Hyper Heat is right around 285%.
This means lower electricity bills for a comfortable home. Mitsubishi Hyper Heating systems are very inexpensive to run, increasing your electric bill per outside unit that is constantly running in the home. But, eliminating the costs of purchasing oil, gas or propane. If you are using a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating system along with a primary heating system such as oil, gas or propane, you’ll find extra savings by using the heat pump to offset the primary fuel use: one heat pump can offset up to 300 gallons of oil in a typical home, saving money on expensive fossil fuels. Plus, heat pumps will help in this way to reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
Example: If oil cost $2.75 per gallon then heating your home with a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating system is equivalent to heating your home with oil for $1.44 per gallon, or for 48% less.
Does a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating System Stop Working When It Gets Really Cold?
With the Mitsubishi Hyper Heat™ heat pump, the efficiency rate will start to drop at around 2 degrees Fahrenheit. At -2 degrees, you will get around 87% of the unit’s output. And at -13 degrees, you will get around 76% of the unit’s output. It is unclear at what temperature the unit will stop working entirely. We haven’t yet had a day cold enough to demonstrate that with the Hyper Heat™ heat pumps. Some Mitsubishi documentation suggests a stopping point of -18 degrees.
In older houses with less insulation, large amounts of heat loss, or drafts, a heat pump will also need to work harder to accommodate the rapid loss of heat due to these issues. However, newer homes often have outstanding insulation and are built to prevent heat loss. The heat created by a heat pump is kept inside the home & helps the system perform with greater efficiency.
How Does Using a Mitsubishi Hyper Heating System Effect Electricity Costs?
Since you are no longer paying for any fossil fuels and your new system only uses electricity it results in a slightly higher use of electricity. Mitsubishi Hyper Heating system also provides cold air in the summer, this eliminates the need for a traditional air conditioner, resulting in a huge decrease in electricity use for your air conditioning needs.
What is a heat pump water heater?
A heat pump water heater uses the same heat pump technology described above to heat a home’s domestic hot water. Heat pump water heaters are very well-insulated, and water can hold heat very well. Heat pump water heaters provide hot water at a very low operating cost, usually $15 or less per month.
