Midea's Residential Air Conditioner Division (Midea RAC) has been spruiking the benefits of its sustainable R290 technology portfolio, and the benefits of heat pumps.

For 15 years, Midea has invested heavily in R&D to develop more R290-compatible HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) products, thereby reducing environmental harm.

With 6.2 million R290 units already sold, Midea's R290 products have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 3.715 million tonnes so far. This is equivalent to the annual carbon dioxide absorbed by 4.4 million hectares of the Amazon rainforest.

Midea RAC also introduced the COMBO Heat Pump Water Heater (HPWH) series, a new addition to the R290 product family.

The COMBO HPWH series is a lineup featuring five different models of wall-mounted and floor-standing units designed for maximum flexibility to fit various apartment types and installation sites.

This series stands out because it uses microchannel heat transfer technology, making it highly energy-efficient and earning it an A+ rating.

The heat transfer process has been improved by introducing technologies such as microchannel heat transfer and multi-loop flat tubes. This series is thoroughly tested to withstand high pressures, guaranteeing its durability and performance. Additionally, the use of efficient thermal grease enhances its heat transfer.

Notably, the floor-standing COMBO features unique inner coil technology that can connect the solar collector and gas boiler as a powerful auxiliary heat source, effectively improving energy efficiency for more energy savings and comfort.

Moreover, the COMBO HPWH series is equipped with an impressed current anode for a permanent maintenance-free operation, guaranteeing more reliable protection that is free of anode changing and reduces maintenance cost.

The enamel water tank and 45mm thick insulation make the COMBO even more energy-saving, reliable, and durable.

It is worth mentioning that the COMBO HPWH series is also compatible with Midea's solar-powered All-In-One Smart Energy Management System MHELIOS, further enhancing its energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.

Through continuous R&D efforts, Midea aims to offer distinct R290 product lines tailored to evolving standards and consumer demands and promote environmental sustainability across all aspects.

Midea RAC is actively addressing the technical challenges of the R290 one drive three multi-split system and has achieved early success in developing a refrigerant leakage sensor.
