What is the difference between RAC and PAC splits?

RAC (Residential Air Conditioning) split systems are ideal for domestic and small business spaces, with capacities from 2 – 12.5 kW. PAC (Packaged Air Conditioning) split systems are generally higher in capacity and are designed for medium to large commercial applications, with capacities from 4 – 25 kW.

What is the difference between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Electric?

The two Mitsubishi companies may share the same Japanese name but that is about all that is shared. The two are direct competitors in the VRF and splits product sectors although they have come to the air conditioning market on very different routes. Mitsubishi Electric, a former division of Mitsubishi Heavy industries, broke away in 1921 to embark on semiconductor technology.

What have MHI done to make their products more environmentally friendly?

We are continuously developing new technologies to help you meet your heating and cooling requirements as well as environmental objectives. We were the first manufacturer to invest in and develop the new CO2 refrigerant technology in heat pumps, and introduced the first full range of air-conditioning split systems that utilise high-efficiency and ozone-friendly R410a refrigerant to the European market. For more information on how we have reduced the environmental impact of our products, please see our Green solutions and Sustainability pages.
