Zuba-Central - Heating and Cooling Evolved

Evolution is associated with advanced thinking, and advanced thinking brings you great benefits. By combining the benefits of heat pump technology with centralized ductwork, Zuba-Central easily poises itself as the new and better way to provide year-round heating and cooling comfort.

Made exclusively for Canada, this easy-to-install, money- and space-saving system will forever change the way you experience heating & air conditioning. Explore all of the benefits below and you’ll soon see how.

Characteristics

Central Ducted System

A traditional heating and cooling system used to mean inefficient gas furnaces, baseboard heaters, and bulky air conditioners. Or worse still, messy and expensive oil- based systems. They’re all noisy, lack in performance, and, by the very nature of their design, cost a lot to operate.

Mitsubishi Electric has always been on the cutting edge of heating and cooling technology. Not to mention money- saving, space-saving, quiet and earth- friendly. Now with Zuba-Central, we’ve made it possible to introduce the superior benefits and technology of a Mitsubishi Electric system into your new or existing duct work. The difference is simply amazing.

Hyper-Heat Inverter

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, keeping the indoors at a comfortable and consistent level.


Ready in a Flash

Conventional 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.

Zuba-Central, on the other hand, overcomes this common issue with its H2i technology, and 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.

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, Zuba-Central is able to maintain a high heating capacity and achieve higher performances without being affected by the cold.

VSCi Technology

Its advanced Variable Compressor Speed Inverter (VCSI) Technology provides exceptional high-speed heating and cooling performance, energy-efficient operation, and most importantly, the experience of unmatched comfort.

Conventional compressors work on cycles where the system starts up and stays at a fixed speed until it overshoots the set temperature, and then stops until the next cycle begins. This on-off cycle causes unnecessary energy spikes and also consumes high amounts of energy, regardless of the actual requirement, as the system is always producing the maximum amount of cooling or heating even when the demand is low. This results in a tremendous amount of wasted energy and uncomfortable energy fluctuations.

Powerful Savings

The savings are easy to see and even easier to realize with Zuba-Central. A heating and cooling system's performance can be simply represented by its Coefficient of Performance (COP). COP is a standardized measurement of how much energy you get from every unit of fuel input. The following chart shows a comparison of COP between gas furnaces, electric resistance heaters, and Zuba-Central:

Space Saving

Tiny Footprint. Smaller than a backyard tile.

The Zuba-Central outdoor unit measures only 13" (33 cm) thick – which sits perfectly alongside your exterior wall and takes up a lot less real estate than a traditional A/C system. It is so compact that you can have it installed anywhere around your premises, without taking up your valuable patio space.

The indoor Air Handling Unit is smaller than a gas furnace, and fits right onto your existing ductwork. Everything is efficiently housed in a single unit.

Efficiently Green

Now you can keep more money in your pocket while reducing your carbon footprint. The Zuba-Central system uses ozone-friendly R-410A refrigerant which produces no CFCs or HCFCs, and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP). This is not only beneficial to the environment but also translates into better overall performance and energy efficiency than traditional R-22 based systems.

Through the use of our VSCI Technology (Variable Compressor Speed Inverter) the Zuba-Central system is able to dynamically adjust heating and cooling capacities to match actual requirements of your home, which means you pay only for the required energy when you need it.

Zuba-Central is an Energy Star® qualified heat pump with a SEER1 of 15.0 and EER2 of 12.0 in cooling mode, and an HSPF3 of 9.4 in heating mode. Together with a high-efficiency ECM motor, you can be sure that you’re always getting the most from your utility bill and giving the most back to the environment.
