New Mr. Slim® Heat Pump Systems

Ga. - June 3, 2008 - Mitsubishi Electric HVAC
Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga., has introduced a new Mr.
Slim® M-Series high-efficiency, split-ductless heat pump
"The new Mr. Slim MSZ-FD/MUZ-FD systems feature increased energy effectiveness for superior performance," says Chuck Applebee, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC. "The total system energy effectiveness is up to 75 percent greater than the industry standard of 13 SEER thanks to a powerful new magnet rotor design in the outdoor unit's compressor that allows for lower current input. The system models are rated 22 or 23 SEER, depending on the Btu/h."
The new M-Series system, which
consists of the MSZ-FD indoor unit and the MUZ-FD outdoor unit, is
ENERGY STAR® Tier 2 qualified due to its increased energy
effectiveness and SEER ratings. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of
Energy that certifies products that use less energy, save money and
promote cleaner air.
In addition, the systems feature superior cooling and heating performance. The MSZ-FD09NA systems have a rated cooling capacity of 9,000 Btu/h and a rated heating capacity of 10,900 Btu/h, while the MSZ-FD12NA models have a rated cooling capacity of 12,000 Btu/h and a rated heating capacity of 13,600 Btu/h.
Mitsubishi Electric's "i-see" sensor is standard on the MSZ-FD indoor units. The "i‑see" sensor enables the units to achieve superior cooling and heating performance by eliminating the disparity between the temperature close to the ceiling and the temperature near the floor. The sensor rotates 360 degrees, measures the infrared radiation generated from the surrounding wall and floor surfaces, computes radiant energy and then converts it into a temperature value which is introduced into the control system. This process creates a more comfortable environment near the floor, around occupants.
In addition to the standard antioxidant catechin filter, the MSZ-FD/MUZ-FD systems include two new filters: a blue-enzyme filter that reduces the concentration of allergens and germs in the air; and a platinum catalyst deodorizing filter that uses nanotechnology to absorb microscopic odor particles, providing improved comfort in any space. The system also is extremely quiet, as low as 22 db(A) indoors. It includes a "powerful mode" function, which permits the system to temporarily run at either a cooler or warmer temperature (depending on need) with an increased fan speed to quickly bring any room to the optimum comfort level. The system includes a wireless remote controller for simple, precise comfort control.
