As the weather cools we begin to think of the discomfort winter can bring, severe wind and rain, cold and damp. Translate that into every day living and winter’s discomfort rears itself in the form of coming home after a long day at work to the cold, dank dampness of home. It doesn’t have to have be like this.

Mitsubishi Electric have harnessed the power and use of innovative technology with the Wi-Fi heat pump control system, which allows you to connect your Mitsubishi electric high wall heat pumps, floor consoles or ducted systems to your smartphone, tablet or online account.

This connectivity means you can control each unit in your home while you are on-the-go via an internet connection. Short translation, you can turn your heatpump on when you leave work allowing time for the whole house to warm so that you arrive home to heated comfort – the perfect end to a long working day. Absolute bliss on a wintry day!

With a Wi-Fi controlled heat pump you no longer have to endure the pain and discomfort of coming home to a cold house ever again. So the question of how long will my lounge take to heat or cool when I get home from work, can be a thing of the past.

The Mitsubishi Electric Wi-Fi Control will ensure you always return to a warm and comfortable home and this small, convenient device can make all the difference to your busy lifestyle.

However, if we are speaking in terms of timing and getting the internal temperature just right, then generally speaking, a heat pump will get a room to a comfortable level within 30 minutes.

If you use your Wi-Fi connectivity to set and start heating with that time-frame in mind then you will always come home to a perfectly comfortable home. No more chilling cold or damp odour for those with the Wi-Fi heat pump control.

If by chance you are yet to get Wi-Fi connectivity added to you heatpump (Wi-Fi control units can be retrospectively fitted to your existing heat pump) then the timing of a warmed room becomes more important. When it comes to heating and cooling a room, each home is different and there is no “one size fits all answer.


Many factors come into play including the outside temperature, the size of the room, the number of windows, insulation and or the lack of it. The size and capacity of your heat pump will also factor highly – if it is too small or too large, it will use more energy than needed and end up costing you more to heat or cool to the level you require. This is where the specialists can advise you.

To reach the optimal temperature fast, ensure all windows and doors are closed as this reduces drafts and the space needing to be heated. Also, don’t get caught up thinking that setting the temperature will heat your room faster, this is a fallacy and as a rule it is best not to set the temperature higher or lower than you need it.

A recommended 18-22ºC is a comfortable working temperature.

Frequent temperature changes will be reflected in your monthly power bill because your heat pump is working harder with each change to quickly meet that new temperature level.
