The ZUBA Central Heat Pump – Simply the best Heat Pump for Ottawa!

Heat Pump Comfort

Traditionally, in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, in areas where natural gas was not available the only viable heating and cooling system used to mean inefficient oil furnaces, baseboard heaters, and bulky air conditioners.  They’re all noisy, lack in performance, and due to the extraordinary energy cost and the very nature of their design, they are very expensive to operate. Now, there is heat pump technology available in Ottawa that can save up to 70% in energy costs, even in the cold Ottawa winters. Mitsubishi Electric has always been on the cutting edge of heating and cooling technology. Not to mention money- saving, space-saving, quiet and environmentally friendly. Now with Zuba-Central Heat Pump, it possible to introduce the superior benefits and technology of a Mitsubishi Electric Heat Pump system into your new or existing duct work. The difference is simply amazing.

ZUBA Central Heat Pump – Hyper Heat Inverter

Hyper Heat Inverter Heat Pump

The secret behind Zuba-Central’s high-heating performance, even under extremely low outdoor temperatures, is our exclusive Hyper-Heat Inverter (H2i) technology. It maximizes the benefits and efficiencies you can get from a heat pump. Even when outdoor temperatures drop to extremes – levels that would give traditional heat pump systems a cold chill – Zuba-Central stays on the job, as low as -30C, keeping the indoors at a comfortable and consistent level.

Ready in a Flash

Mitsubishi Zuba Central Heat Pump OttawaConventional heat pumps generally do not perform well when the outdoor temperature drops below 0°C. This is because the compressor in conventional heat pumps easily overheats while operating in low outdoor temperatures. Under such conditions, the compressor suction pressure drops significantly and the refrigerant mass flow rate reduces due to its thermal properties, which in turn diminishes the system’s heating capacity. In order to regain the system’s heating capacity, the compressor runs at a much higher speed to boost the discharge pressure back to a normal level, thus overheating the compressor.

The Zuba-Central Heat Pump, overcomes this common issue with its H2i technology at the heart of that is the Flash Injection Circuit. The Flash Injection Circuit increases the heating capacity of the system while maintaining a high compressor discharge pressure without overheating, even when outdoor temperatures are well below 0°C. Conventional Heat Pumps produce only a fraction of their full capacity at these low temperatures. In stark contrast, the heat output of a Zuba-Central Heat Pump is the same at -15C as it is at 0C.

The Flash Injection Circuit is a patent-pending technology, which consists of a Heat Interchanger (HIC) and a compressor equipped with an injection port. It works by allowing for a portion of two-phase refrigerant (gas-liquid) to bypass the outdoor coil, and recollect heat energy at the Heat Interchanger (HIC) that is normally rejected during the flash process in the outdoor unit. The Flash Injection Circuit then injects the energized two-phase refrigerant at a lower temperature into the compressor through the injection port during the compression process. This reduces the temperature inside the compression chamber, allowing the compressor to run at higher speeds to offset the effect of low suction pressure and the low refrigerant mass flow rate. As a result, the Zuba-Central Heat Pump is able to maintain a high heating capacity and achieve higher performances without being affected by the cold.
