Pipelife Ireland is delighted to welcome Midea to the Pipelife family. The Midea Monobloc heat pump is the latest addition to our range of heating solutions and will complement our existing range off heat pumps underfloor heating, smart controls, low temperature radiators, heat recovery units and air conditioning units!
Established in 1968, Midea is one of the world’s fastest growing companies – ranked number 229 by Forbes Global in 2020 – and a global manufacturer with factories in 12 countries across the world.
At the start the company primarily produced white good products such as Vacuum Cleaners, Cookers, kettles, Washing machines and all sorts of kitchen and home appliances.
In 1985 they opened their air conditioning business and started making cooling devices. They employ 135,000 people in their air conditioning division where they make 40 million units per year and in Europe one in five air conditioning and heat pump systems are manufactured by Midea.
You’ve probably come into contact with their products in the past as they specialise in white labelling equipment so quite often they will make the equipment and other manufacturers will put their sticker in them so it’s very likely that you’ve seen or used their products.
The brand is now becoming much more high profile in Europe. For instance becoming one of the main sponsors for clubs like Manchester City has raised their profile enormously. So watch this space you are going to see a lot more of this brand!
The Midea M Thermal provides an energy efficient solution that delivers space heating and cooling and domestic hot water. It is a complete all-year round, integrated heating system which can replace, or work in synergy with traditional gas or oil boilers.
One of the things that’s really clear when you look at the Midea unit is that the engineers have clearly looked at other machines available on the market and what the best features were and should be used when they made this unit.
An example of this would be how they have managed to get 16 Kilowatts out of a unit that which only has a single fan. This comes down to the design of the fan unit itself with Midea making out a scallop shape cut out of the blade and this is done to help increase air flow but also to keep the sound down, hence the Midea unit can boost to being one of the quietest on the market today!
The Midea unit comes with all the features that you’d expect, weather compensation, two-zone control, legionella protection, quiet modes etc. So everything that all major brands include in their heat pumps come with this as well.
The biggest advantage we see with the Midea unit is the fact that they offer a 10-year warranty. This really reinforces the quality of the unit and is currently the longest guarantee on the market today!
For us we think this represents the next generation of heat pumps!
10-year warranty – nothing says you are confident in the quality of your heat pump, more than a 10-year warranty.
Available in single phase capacities of 4 kW-16 kW, or three phase capacities of 12 kW to 30 kW.
The M Thermal can provide domestic hot water (up to 55°C) and underfloor heating, improving room comfort.
The M Thermal is designed for installation in any type of property, especially homes with limited space. Being a compact system with a single unit installed outdoors means the available space indoors remains unchanged.
A+++ ErP Energy Rating Efficient heating capacity even when at -7°C air temperature. Maintains continuous hot water supply up to 55°C even with outdoor temperatures as low as -20°C.
All functions are achieved with a single outdoor unit, bringing significant cost savings. Furthermore, installation is quicker and easier as there is no need for refrigerant piping, and the product is pre-charged at the factory. Two-door design for easy access to internal components for easy maintenance.
