METUS Debuts Deluxe Wall-mount System

March 10, 2021
Major new feature is a Dual Barrier Coating, for improved indoor air quality.

SUWANEE, Ga. – March 8, 2021 – Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS), a leading supplier of Ductless and Ducted Mini-split and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat-pump and air-conditioning systems, introduces the Deluxe Wall-mounted Single-zone System with H2i technology. The system includes the new Deluxe Wall-mounted Indoor Unit with Dual Barrier Coating and new outdoor heat pump model with Hyper-Heating INVERTER® plus (H2i plus™) technology.

The Deluxe Wall-mounted Indoor Units are the first in the industry to feature the patented, next-generation Dual Barrier. Hydrophilic particles, including dust and dirt, and hydrophobic particles, like oil and grease mist, can accumulate on the heat exchanger, air ducts and fan over time, reducing an HVAC system's heating or cooling efficiency. Applied on the inside of the heat exchanger, vanes, air duct and blower wheel, the Dual Barrier Coating limits particle build-up, improving durability, efficiency and indoor air quality. The high-performing coating reduces maintenance requirements and maintains high efficiency levels throughout years of operation,
resulting in energy savings.

Deluxe Wall-mounted Indoor Units are available in an extensive range of sizes and include an improved, remote controller featuring backlit display with easy-to-read operation modes.

The Deluxe Wall-mounted H2i plus™ System also includes MUZ-FS heat pump outdoor units equipped with new-to-market H2i plus™ technology. H2i plus provides up to 100 percent heating capacity at outdoor ambient temperatures as low as -5° F. H2i plus is designed for continued performance down to -13° F without the need for supplemental heat.

MUZ-FS model outdoor heat pump units are available in 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 KBTU/H capacities.

The minimal maintenance requirements of the Deluxe Wall-mounted Indoor Units and the high-performing, lower temperature heating capacity of H2i plus heat pumps offer occupants a consistent HVAC experience. Additionally, the single-zone systems have earned ENERGY STAR® certification for all indoor unit/outdoor unit combinations.

“The Deluxe Wall-mounted System reflects our commitment to offering customers the ultimate in personal indoor comfort,” says Mitul Patel, director of residential product management, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “Recent advances in cold-climate heat pump performance mean more homeowners than ever can experience personalized comfort while improving their home’s sustainability. Dual Barrier Coating and H2i plus are prime examples of meaningful advancements. With these innovations, the Deluxe Wall-mounted System achieves high energy efficiency while responding to critical consumer demands for low-maintenance, high-performing HVAC units.”
