Nu-Heat's YUTAKI ASHP Passes MCS with Flying Colours

Honiton, United Kingdom, May 01, 2010 --( As expected, Hitachi’s YUTAKI air source heat pump range has now received MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) approval, giving Nu-Heat customers access to grants and future eligibility for the government’s proposed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

Testing for UKAS accredited MCS approval from BRE Global included a visit to the manufacturing facility in Spain with checks on components, assembly and delivery capability. At BRE in Watford, acoustics and performance were tested. The YUTAKI application went straight through to approval without a hitch.

As sole UK supplier Nu-Heat is delighted with the approval. Nu-Heat went into partnership with Hitachi in 2009 specifically to add the YUTAKI to its product range and carried out its own rigorous in-house tests with various cylinders and configurations and has recently launched an EnergyMaster HP cylinder solely for use with the YUTAKI.

Available in four models with varying outputs – 3kW, 4kW, 5kW or 6kW – making it suitable for a wide range of projects, the YUTAKI has lived up to its promise with a 100% positive reaction from installations that have already taken place, including those that had to handle this year’s big freeze. It has also proved itself to be an ideal retrofit product, with excellent results from older properties.

Business Development Manager Andy Hooper says that the YUTAKI is ‘probably the most efficient air source heat pump on the market.’ Now that’s worth drinking to.

MCS is a benchmark for quality and helps provide consumer confidence. The scheme is owned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and BRE Global certifies products (and installers) against tough criteria.
